I used sea salt when I treated my tropheus, but I think the aquarium salt box says you can use it to treat diseases.

What I do is dissolve the salt in a bucket of water and slowly add it a little at a time throughout the day. I don't think it's necessary to do it that way, but I like the slow acclimation process if I'm adding a lot of salt.

You never said what size your tank is! Don't go by my terrible math and my bad memory!! I wouldn't want to be responsible for pickling your fish.

The salt is a place to start. There's no way to guarantee it will work, but there is little to go by to make a diagnosis and recommend medication, etc.

Do you have any Melafix? Or another medication that treats fin rot?

If you have a test kit, you should check your water parameters and try to figure out what's going on.

That is strange that you get fin rot after a wc and adding salt. Are the females still alright?

Sorry to hear that D. You can always look for another male or see if a breeder wants to buy some extra females.
