Re: Is this normal for my Fish? Pics inside
Melafix alone may not work on finrot. You'll need to do plenty of water changes.
Here's the information you may need for scats. I've kept them a few years back so I can only help you the best that I could. Again, a hydrometer should be set in store for this purpose.
Mid-salinity brackish water can be defined as species that can be kept successfully at anything from about SG 1.008 right up to full strength seawater at SG 1.025, but with a middling value of SG 1.010 being more than adequate for long term health. Classic examples of mid salinity brackish water fishes are scats, monos, certain archerfish such as Toxotes jaculatrix, Colombian shark catfish, and violet gobies.
Another information added..
Marine salt should be used when increasing the salinity for the scats, not aquarium salt. They contain buffers that will increase the pH important to brackish and marine species.
