Fin and tail rot. Please advise. Small loach with what I believe is fin and tail rot. Jagged edges w/white around edges of tail. Water parameters are good as of last night; AM=0, Nitrate=40, Nitrite=0, water is hard between 150 and 300, and PH is 6.2. Been working on stablizing the water. Has been good for a couple of weeks. I understand that one must be very careful when medicating loaches. I have Melafix. Will that help used at 1/2 strength? I also have a larger chubby loach and 3 angelfish; one med size and two smaller. They all still appear to be in excellent shape. I don't want anything I put in the tank to harm them. Can someone please advise. If the Melafix is acceptable I would like to get started tonight. Thanks
