Fin Rot

Home > Tropical Fish > Diseases

The first sign of fin rot is when the fin starts to become frayed or appear as if it is disintegrating. Sometimes you will actually notice small holes in the fins starting to form. In addition, the base of the fin where the fin attaches to the body will usually become red and appear very irritated.

The best way to help your fish if it is showing signs of fin rot is to improve the water quality in its aquarium. Carefully monitor any other fish that are housed in the same aquarium for similar signs. If after trying to improve the water quality you do not see results in the following days it will be necessary to completely change the water. You will also need to disinfect any items and gravel which you use in the aquarium. You may also be able to find some sort of antibiotic from the pet store that will help its rehabilitation.
