I tend to look on exclusively fish sites and then compare their info and decide, what I've noticed is a lot refer to using salt with Maracyn to help boost the power of it. Since mollies are somewhat brackish water fish to begin with they can handle salt added to their water. You can always try getting aquarium salt to help the healing process.

Darn it, this fin rot is strong then isn't it? .___.' I've never dealt with one this strong, I'm not really sure what else you can do. Melafix is usually what I just use to heal the tail but it is possible for it to heal infections too, though I don't think its as strong as maracyn. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help D=

I will be looking up more stuff and if I find anything that s credible I will send it your way.

Goodluck with your molly

Good news. I took my Molly out of the QT tank today and he looks pretty good. There are a couple of white spots on his tail, but he was pure white when I pulled him out of the tank. Prior to putting my Molly back in, I did a water change (about 30%) in my big tank. I wanted him to have the best water conditions possible. Good news is Nitrite and Ammonia were zero and Nitrate was 20 ppm. GH was 8, KH was 4.

I added a little more salt and the Malafix that you recommended, prior to putting him back in. His tail is almost gone, but he seems much healthier than when I QT him.

Thanks again for your help.
