Maracyn Two

Hi all,

I've noticed my betta, Gale, has a mild case of fin rot. So I got him Maracyn Two, but I was hesitant to because I think it might be too strong for him. The box does say it treats bacterial fin and tail rot. If you look at my profile picture, you could see him. He'll be in a one gallon hospital tank for now. The Maracyn comes in a dissolving powder form. Any advice?

If it is a mild case, maybe you should try the aquarium salt treatment first. Medications have their place, but I know many people try to only use them as a last resort.
