Panther Grouper...

I just bought a panther grouper and it seems like it has tail rot....his tail and fins are fraying and cut. I dont have much expierience with sick fish, since I've never really had a sick fish in the year that i've been doing SW. I was wondering what you all think is the best approach to curing this. I have a 120 gallon with 145lbs of LR. Im not really concerced about putting medecine in the tank because I will never have inverts in the tank or nor will i ever use the rock for a reef tank. Any suggestions would be helpful...

since you just bought him , i would take him back too the store, if you have other fish in the tank and dont have a q-tank, if you want too keep him, then go get some meds for him.
