Question
Does nutrafin bettaplus cure fin rot

Answer
Hello Tabitha, Nutrafin bettaplus will not cure fin rot. I would recommend going to a pet store and purchasing Melafix from the company API. Make sure that it is for treating bacterial infections and not fungal infections. It will be in a blue bottle. The directions are simple on the bottle and it is one of the products I use for fin rot. The nutrafin bettaplus is a water conditioner. That means that it helps dechlorinate new water and is healthy for any water changes you do. It is not a medication for your fish. The melafix is made for treating bacterial infections like fin rot.I hope this helped and if you have any questions

Expertise

I can answer most questions about fish care and maintenance. I am not an expert on saltwater aquariums but I am researching more about them on a daily basis. I have kept many different tropical freshwater fish as well as cichlids. Brackish water is my weakest category but if you have a question feel free to ask and I will do research on it myself.

Experience

I have kept fish for over 10 years. I am also an employee at a pet store and the head of the fish department. I am going to school at Emporia State University and studying biology with a concentration in ecology and biodiversity for undergraduate work. Right now my job is to care for and maintain the fish department at a local pet store. As far as water quality, I am well versed in different practices you can do to help improve conditions and what levels to look out for when testing the water.

Education/Credentials
I am majoring in Biology at Emporia State University and have researched fish reproductive behavior for the past decade.
