Fin rot is most often atributed to declining or poor water conditions. However, diet can also play a small factor. If you have ruled out any bullying from tankmates I suggest a series of water changes using aged and aerated SW made with good RO/DI water. Can you post NH3, NO2, NO3, Ph, SG and temp?

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
