Fin rot... melafix not working
One of my bettas started to get fin rot about 3 months ago... I treated it w/ melafix, bettafix, salt, everyday 20% water change, etc... but it doesn't to be doing anything.... (of course not at the same time)... Last week, I used melafix everyday and it seemed to halt the spread.... but after a few days, I see the fin rot affecting his fins and tails with redness around the affected area... now, my other fish started to have fin rot, I'm treatin him with bettafix but he is in a 14 g tank, so how much should I put it in or should I just use melafix?
What other medications will do a better job?
Do their fins/ tails go back to their glorious self? My parents are really disturbed by this b/c they love my betta, and distressed that his beautiful tail won't come back anymore.... its all raggedy and torn :(
