I think my guppies might have fin rot...
I have a ten gallon aquarium with 6 male guppies in it, and they appear to be developing fin rot. At the very edge of several of their fins is discolored/transparent. One guppy has ragged fins, but no discoloration, so I think it is just fin nipping. They are displaying no other symptoms, they are all eating and swimming around normally.
Does this sound like fin rot? If so, what should I do to help fix it (besides increased water changes)?
Oh yeah, before the inevitable is asked...
My water parameters are:
Ammonia: 0 ppm
Nitirite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: ~20 ppm (it is difficult to read)
If it is fin rot, my plan is to
1. Increase water changes.
2. Start dosing stress guard
3. If this doesn't work, I'll move the infected to a hospital tank and dose with salt.
4. If the problem gets even worse I'll dose with an antibiotic like maracyn.
Does this sound like a good plan?
