Would also get in the habit of vaccuming a small area of the gravel during weekly water changes ,a different area each time you change the water. Sadly sometimes we lose fish ,all we can do is try and provide them with comfortable enviornment.
Finrot,fungus,and or bacterial infections are linked to the fishes enviornment. When enviornment is not to their liking, the fish become stressed.This in turn ,,weakens their immune system and they are much more suceptible to the afore mentioned fungus,finrot,bacterial infections etc. Medications are largely ineffective while water conditions are poor but by providing proper water parametrs for the species we keep, the fish are able to fight off infections and such much more easily than they can when they are stressed.
