I started a thread on here trying to encourage people to install IE7 because I am sure that people open up the forum and think nothing is there, not realising that it is right down the page.

Getting back to the fin rot i have now used melafix for 7 days and done a 30% water change on 7th day and then started melefix again but he is definately not gettin any better. do you think i need to do more frequent water changes? maybe every 2 or 3 days. I know it would be an idea to go to a vet to get antibiotics, however i have done this before and the vet just said that he is sure antibiotics would not help as the bacteria would probably be immune to it?!?! he also charged me £60 for the privilage of this information and within 3 days i put the fish to sleep. So basically i really dont know where to go from here. Fish seems very happy and is eating well but he just looks like his fins are rotting away, Although seems only the dorsal and rear (rudder) fin is affected as swimming fins are not getting worse.

I think it would be a good idea to do very frequent water changes, try a keep the nitrates below 10ppm. take some pics for me please. you could try medication again but wait for about 3 days
