To treat a betta with fin rot using aquarium salt, transfer the fish, a heater and some hiding places like real/fake plants to a separate or tub with treated tap water of the same temperature as the water in the aquarium (be sure to give the fish some time to acclimate to the 100% tap water)! Set the heater to a temperature of around 77-78 F – any higher will make the rot progress more quickly, and any lower and it might be harmful to the fish.

Fin rot is caused by bacteria eating away at your fish’s fins. Any healthy aquarium has bacteria in it — it’s what’s needed to break down waste. Top Fin 10G Aquarium Kit (Filter Only)

Once Fin Rot sets in, change the water and examine the conditions within the aquarium. Remove everything from the aquarium and wash all the and rocks with hot water. Do not use soap. Follow instructions for changing the water in the aquarium.I have a cycled 30 L aquarium with one betta. A few days before this betta got fin rot. So today after I checked all the water parameters, ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 20, I think the fin rot is caused by becteria. Then I bought a paraguard to treat the tank and the betta. Now I moved the sick betta to a QT tank. Since I am selling this betta soon and my new betta will arrive next week. I will put my new betta in this tank. So my questions are:Enjoy a special 21+ midsummer evening with your friends and fellow members exploring the Aquarium, enjoying a cool beverage from our cash bar (wine, beer, soft drinks, and, of course, our signature cocktail Fin & Tonic), and a quick bite from our seasonal food stations, including a dessert station in our Harbor View Terrace Tent.Thank you for coming to our summer Fin & Tonic event!

We can tell you had a fantastic evening exploring your favorite exhibits, tossing some bean bags, taking fun pictures in the photo booth, enjoying the beautiful view of Boston Harbor, and photobombing the Moray Eels. If you missed Aquarist Michael O’Neill’s fascinating talk on the Gulf Stream Orphan Project, you can find more information . Here are a few of our favorite posts from the event!

A special thank you to all of our new members who joined (and current members who brought them). We’ll see you all at our next Fin & Tonic in 2017! Unfortunately, heavy medications have a lot of negative side effects like the possibility of bacteria eventually becoming resistant and the fish becoming extra stressed. Luckily, less severe rot (slightly ragged looking fins) can be treated with a combination of and aquarium salt, which has way less negative side effects. Try to keep an eye on your fish at all times to catch any cases of rot before they get too bad – that way you can prevent having to use medication!Some fish are natural nippers, such as barbs and cichlids, but when housed together in large groups, pose no real threat to each other. Introduce an unsuitable fin-nipper to a peaceful aquarium containing fancy goldfish, guppies or angel fish and you will have to remove the aggressive fish before it wreaks havoc with your other fish's fins. Research fish species and behavior before setting up a new aquarium or adding to an existing community tank, or you could end up with a tank full of frayed fish.
