The white webbing I get all the time. I think it's just the snail goo sticking to the sand that I have in the bottom of my tank, so I've always dismissed it as harmless. If it turns out to be something serious it would be the first I'd ever heard of it. I have two large trapdoor snails, and they take turns gooing on certain parts of the tank (glass, wood, etc).

As for the finrot, I have swordfish that have their tails nipped as well. I assumed it was from one of the more aggressive fish in the tank. At any rate, I've added Pinfix (or whatever it's called) and the problem has been fine.

there is a good chance that you need to clean the tank more throualy and or more often.. this is an indicator illness of poor water quality.

I would go out and get some Melafix and Pimafix for the fin rot. Also a water change would help too.
