Please, please, please, for the sake of your fish try to avoid medications ending in -fix.

anything ending in -fix has a chemical in it that burns their labyrinth organ. that's why we suggest you NOT use it.

fin rot can often be cured with JUST clean water. often, in stubborn cases, a little aquarium salt added to their water for about seven days helps. for more stubborn stuff, you will have to medicate, but, again, stay away from the -fix meds. while i have heard of cases like the OP's, i've heard more cases where the betta DIED from it. x:

My betta did not die from bettafix; but it certainly helped him heal from bleeding fin rot. I was just giving my experience with a really bad case of fin rot.

Thanks for sharing! One of my boys had fin rot once, and healed up fine with clean water.
