      Rich - Thank you, and yes, It doesn't seem like trauma either. It swims with the that pectoral fin just fine. I will do the salting as Cindy suggested for the nitrite but will watch to see if the condition of the fin improves or get worse.

      The salt in that amount will not hurt the fish. You said you had a nitrite spike and nitrite fluctuation.

      Thanks for the positive post. While I make no bones about not trying to be "Politically correct" I do my best to provide insight from my personal and professional experiences that span over 50 years. I just try to "pay it forward". Take what I say for what it's worth and make people can make their own decisions.

      Sorry Cindy, yes he did but it was stated in the past tense so I wanted him to test again to see where it currently stood before adding salt. You know, sometimes we get belated info here and can cloud the discussion.
