Good medicine for velvet?

What's a good medicine for Velvet? My betta has it... I think he's had it since I got him... I thought it was just his color at first, but it's gotten worse and he's starting to rub against stuff. Looks like gold Pixie-dust. >.>

Anyway, I have a snail... so what's a good med without copper, and won't butcher my cycle? Thanks!

Not sure on the medication, but if you're concerned about the cycle and the snail, you could move the betta to a QT for the treatment.

I thought about that, but he's been in the tank for almost 2 months... the tank is probably contaminated by now. D: Better to treat the whole tank.

I used quick cure, warm water and darkness. She was healed within 2 -3 weeks.
