Fin Rot: Alternative to Melafix
Is there an alternative to Melafix for a fin rot? I noticed the fins of my guppies are on healthy, 1 died with all his belly fin colored black, another 2 have started to have black spots on their fins also.
The pet shop only have this med for fin rot, but it says to remove the plants when curing, so I did not buy it, cause I have a number of plants on my 15g tank.
And I read somewhere that I can add some salt to help speed up the recovery.
By the way, the ammonia level is 0. Ph is 7.5 (couldn't find nitrite and nitrate testers). And the fin rot seems to not worsen, well at least from the time that the guppy died 5 days ago. Also, I've been pulling out and planting new plants to the tank while the fishes were in there, and the planting blurred out water, could this be contributing also?
