My fish started displaying signs of fin rot a couple weeks ago. I initially just started doing water changes much more frequently and dosing with stress coat. When that didn't seem to help I started using salt. That didn't seem to help either so now I'm thinking about antibiotics. I am planning to use maracyn of maracyn 2 but I java a dilemma: all the fish in my tank seem to be infected. Should I still move them to a quarantine tank? Won't the load of all the fish at one time be too much for an uncycled tank? I was thinking of moving and treating them in two different groups.
Also, for fin rot which is best: maracyn 1 or maracyn 2 or both?
Beautiful fish. I feel bad you didn't get any good responses. I am not sure but I heard keeping the water excellently clean will help fin rot go away. It's usually a sign of poor water quality, it sounds like.
