Bettafix?

I've heard some different opinions regarding bettafix. I'm thinking of using it if my betta's torn fins don't improve with the use of stress coat and baffling his filter. What is your opinion/experience with bettafix?

I have used it before. It worked for my bettas with no problems so far. Like megaredize's post, I have heard it can effect the labyrinth organ. If you do use, only use it for a short period of time. Have you tried Aq. Salt? I have also tried that with my bettas and it has worked.

It contains some sort of tree oil that will damage the labyrinth organ. I know some people use it with no problem but personally I would never take that sort of a chance.

Here is a guide to healing fin rot:
Treat with Aq.Salt at 1 tsp/gal. Increase water changes to 100% daily. Replace accurate amount of salt following water changes. Add Stress Coat to help repair tissue. If there is little to no improvement within the first 5 days, you can increase the salt dosage gradually to 2tsp/gal but do not continue any salt treatments past 10 days. Medication: If Conservative treatment is ineffective use API Tetracycline, API Fungus Cure, API Triple Sulfa, OR API Erythromycin. Also add Stress Coat to help regrowth. Continue until fins/tail stop receding and start showing some new growth.


Good luck with your betta, I wish him a speedy recovery! :)
