Water changes, done correctly, never hurt.
Right just done 30% so hopefully all ok. Should I feed them if they're due tonight or leave until tomorrow? Also when to test water ?

So I found a reputable local independent guy who sells fish and hes looked at pics and said it's a bacterial infection most likely secondary to a wound the fish had.
Pets at home (awful chain store) told me it was fin rot and tried selling me the meds for it, I declined but bought and put some salt in and will do some big water changes and lots of cleaning and more salt.
Local guy said if persists still he has the correct medication that turns the water blue/green apparently, cant remember name of it.
Probably will lose this guppy but hopefully save the rest 🤔
