    So my red fire dwarf gourami has a pretty severe case of fin rot and it is getting bad so I moved him to a hospital tank and I will not be able to get medicine until next Tuesday and want to know if there is any way I can help him without medicine. Please hurry his life may depend on it.

    Fin rot can be treated pretty easily without meds. just keep the water clean, parameters perfect, and do lots of water changes. What are your water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate)?

    I would do some large (50%) changes daily to see if that helps. If it doesn't, meds are the next step.

    iseems depend on the kind of finrot. Some are very progressive and definitely need meds.

    Agreed, but OP can't get meds until next week though :(

    Yep. Waterchanges till next week.
    Makes it also possible to check if those alone will work and meds aren't needed !
