    The pics are blurry but it does look like finrot. The most common cause is poor water quality. Do you know your readings for ammonia, nitrIte and nitrAte?

    I see that you are using Stress Zyme. That's not the best stuff to use due to it contains the wrong kind of bacteria. That's why you have to keep adding it weekly or whatever the directions say. lol

    Doing daily partial water changes to keep the water clean. You can add Melafix after each water change. That will help. :)
