Fin rot

This is the last thing I need right now. Lol
But I turned my chiclid tank light on and my red bay snook has fin rot I am pretty sure so confirmed fin rot would be nice. But anyways how do I get rid of this? Should I just buy a chemical
Thanks

I would start with more frequent water changes and maybe Melafix at first. If you don't see any improvement or gets worse then I'd treat with meds. Triple Sulfa works well for fin rot.

After treatment you must find the root cause of this to prevent this from occurring again. Whether it's poor water conditions, PH, or stress.

I do about 25% water changes weekly is that good?

I would increase that to around 25-50% every other day till this clears. What are your current water parameters?
