Help Molly please!
« on: September 03, 2011, 07:23:15 AM »

Okay today Molly came under with some fin rot. Sad I moved her into the quaritine tank and I treated with aquarioum salt. Undecided

I'm just wondering if I did something wrong. Huh

That all sounds good to me. Just remember that tropical fish can't tolerate as much salt as a goldfish can, so sometimes it's a good idea to use meds for them if it gets out of control. However I think you did fine. Just keep a close eye on her.  Wink

I'd treat her with some actual anti-bacterial medicine, try some by tetra or (bactopur) by sera, love those! Cheesy
But since you noticed and started treating already, I bet Molly will be just fine Smiley Keep us updated!!

Just keep an eye on her and make sure you feed her really nutritious foods while she's being treated Smiley

Nossie has a good point; nutrition is essential while a fish is trying to recover.

Fin rot takes a while to clear up so just be patient.
