Chick-In-Of-TheSea Posted February 11 Share Posted February 11 (edited) To get right to the point: I think something is wrong with my tank that causes a fin problem. I have been treating for fin rot but I’m not going to call it that. I will call it a fin problem. Because I don’t see dark or red edges. Phase 1: moved betta to qt. 1 T salt/5 g Successful recovery. Moved back to his tank. Within several days, issue returned. Phase 2: moved betta to qt. Kanaplex according to package instructions. The salt was still in the qt water. Successful recovery. Moved back to his tank. Within 24 HOURS, issue returned. I’ve taken a bunch of steps to ensure there is nothing sharp in the tank. Parameters are 0/0/5. Temp 80. PH 7.5 kH 80 gH 180. Describing the tank- ACO heater. Has heater guard so no burning issues would occur. Sponge filter River rock. Did the fizz test. Rock is safe. Swim-thru rock. Store bought. Resin. PVC tunnel, diy swim-thru. Bought at hardware store. Dwarf sag- made a bunch of runners and was doing awesome for awhile but for the most part is dying/turning clear/ melting. Crypt wendtii Sword plant Anacharis Long pothos stem w/ leaves, added directly to tank. Was outside on porch. Gave it a rinse first, rubbed leaves in my fingers under tap water. Indian almond leaf tea gets added to the water. ACO leaves. 3 c go into a gallon jug and that is topped with dechlorinated water and used for the water changes. A whole almond leaf is also in the water. Using Prime as a dechlorinator. Has one tank mate, a king Koopa nerite snail. Water changes are once a week. Why, when I move him back into this tank, does the issue return so quickly? What is wrong with the tank? Some photos from the last 2 weeks or so. Issue before phase 1 (salt): After salt. looking good for the most part but started seeing the dorsal fin split: After phase 2 (Kanaplex)- this was yesterday: That was yesterday. Nice fullness to dorsal. Now look today: @dasaltemelosguy - pothos toxin? @Odd Duck @xXInkedPhoenixX @Colu What else can I do to make this tank safe?!
