Do you have a picture of your guppy for us to look at & confirm fin rot? It does sound like fin rot.

I'm sorry to hear that your guppy didn't make it. If you can find a product named "Fungus Clear" there, it's great for treating fin rot.

The guppy might have died of stress or a secondary infection not the fin rot directly.

yea, that could be. I think it's why a lot of times people use Maracyn and Maracyn-2 antibiotics at the same time when treating fin rot - because of the infection risk, which Maracyn helps with while Maracyn-2 goes after the fin rot.. i'm curious, what antibiotics are in the product that you used?
