help me save my tinfoil
Dear friends, hi.
I am new to this forum but expecting a lot here.
I am posting a video of my tinfoil (sorry for the music).
Look at the tail and upper fin they are sort of rotten.
This fish does not eat also since a couple of days.
Please provide me with a solution for it.
I have already change 50 % water.
What else do i have to do to save it.
Please suggest quickly.

You need to test your water and see where you are on that. What other fish are in there with it? Depending upon what other fish are present, if you can't relocate it to a hospital tank you'll have treat the main tank, I'd put some aquarium salt and melafix in the water. Most fin rot is bacterial, but it's also usually the result of something else being wrong; water, stress or other illness. If fresh water, salt and melafix don't start improving it, then you'll probably want to treat with antibiotics.
