I just noticed 3 of my gold fish have frayed fins and looks to be the start of fin rot. I just did a full water test and part water change and the results where-
Nitrate 0 ppm
Nitrite 0 ppm
How could they have got sick? (I know my tanks a bit over stocked but that's being fixed after my other tanks cycled). Could the Black Skirt Tetras be nipping their fins? There's 5 of them.
The only treatment I have is Melafix, I could treat the whole tank but should I? Or I could wait till the other tanks done them separate them?
What would you do?

yep I just gave one of my rainbows finrot from a rescape. It's just that easy I guess but he is just a lil guy. Never tried melafix I'll have to one day. I LOVVE stresscoat as some already know. I found the best deals on treatments are petco oddly enough. Good luck I hope all goes well. Goldfish are hard to keep with other fish as well as they have different water condition needs. Google care of blank and you'll get it all figured out. Once the other tank is done you'll be fine anyhow just cross your fingers that you don't lose any. But goldfish are a dime a dozen well actually more like 3 something but anywho
