    Default Possible fin rot

    I am not sure but one of my fish has a hole in its tail fin and a few spots on and some fraying, i am afraid its fin rot what is the best safest treatment, I know water quality is usually to blame but i dont think so in this case.
    and would like to treat all the fish just incase the rest look perfect.
    Thanks,Tony

    I would not take that route.Increase temps are not what you want if it's bacterial infection IMO.Broad spectrum antibiotics are better.
