What Causes Split Fins ?
Posted 08 March 2008 - 01:20 AM
I do have Melafix but have been doing water changes to rid of the antibiotic in the tank (I have done 4 at 20%). The Ich treatment stays in the tank for 30 days (Coppersafe)...so like 1 week left. I am afraid to add anything to the tank right now.
Anything I should be doing

Livebeareres seem to get split fins alot, but nothing to worry about if there just split and not finrot.
If a fish does have finrot melafix is only good once the fins are healing.

Gouramis fin looks better already. The Tinfoils fin kind of has a "webby" look to it but not quite rotting away. The Severums tail fin has healed nicely, but one side fin which was pretty bad still has a couple huge gaps in it.
Looking this morning I may see a white spot on the Severums fin again. I hope this isn't happening all over again. I was in tears a few weeks ago
I have my heater set at 82, but the sticky side thermometer says 80. Not sure which is more accurate ??? Should I turn the heater up to 84 ?
Should I do a water change and add Coppersafe and/or anti-biotic to the new water ? I don't want to over do it.

I have been treating new water with the Coppersafe up until the last one, about 25%. Should I do say a 30% water change and then treat the water for 50% of the tank ?
I am thinking what Coppersafe remains in there is weak by now. Maybe put the carbon in....wait a day...then do a 30% water change and treat the entire tank again ?
Should I turn heater up to 84 or is that too high ?

How long have you been using it.
When you preform a water change while using the med you just add the correct amount of med back to the water removed.

I pray this works out
Still wondering if I should turn the temp up to 84 though. I have a Severum, Tinfoil Barbs, Opaline Gourmai, Rainbow fish, and a Pictus cat. Will these all be okay in that warm of water ?
Last time I also treated the tank with Maracyn-2. I am not going to do that again unless the fins seem to get worse. I hope not.

For whitespot temp should be 30, I use the different side to you.
