I'm treating my 75 gallon freshwater for what I suspect is some kind of bacterial fin rot. My german ram which I purchased a couple weeks ago, has developed a wide whitish patch on the side of its body that seems to be advancing. I thought at first it might have been due to physical damage from being netted at the store, or perhaps by a macro shrimp I have since re homed. Yesterday the white patch was starting to bleed. I've broken down and finally set up a 5 gal quarantine which I'm going to move the ram into. Assuming what I'm dealing with is bacterial, are there any good all round anti bacterial drugs I can use? I'm planing to try I've also tried Spectogram in the past, when my set up was still a 20 gallon and my tetras and late molly were having issues. I'm looking for a general cure that might help in my larger 75 gallon, and maybe my ram in quarantine. Lately, I've been using aquarium salt and paraguard in my main 75 gal.
