Oy vey, so much conflicting information! Maybe I'm thinking good for fin rot but not for healing fins? I'm not entirely sure, but I had commented elsewhere and like three people told me that salt was bad for them. I think I'll just go find a lovely corner to sit in and just lurk lol.

Most of the API treatments and conditioners use mL and they include a measuring cup right on the cap. Very convenient. The hangers I used were clothing hangers. I cut a little notch in each end with a knife where I wanted them to break and then bent them at that point till they did. The bottom of the hangers were long enough for my aquarium but Hobby Lobby is sure to have some kind of plastic dowel that can be used as well. Really you just need something to brace the sides with so that the fish can't get around the sides or bottom because the mesh is pliable. Plastic seemed like the easiest and safest thing to use for my tank. If you are going to Hobby Lobby, I found my little plastic mesh crafting sheets over with the sewing things. They also come in a variety of colors. I have two layers stitched together, one side is white and one is black. I just threaded the fishing line through both.

I too, have not had any luck treating fin rot with just aquarium salt....maybe I just don'[t have the patience to follow the treatment plan for aquarium salt. Anyway, I'll come lurk in the corner with you....lol.

No lurking required. I hate leaving my baby in his QT for so long but it really does work. The stress coat helps too. But I do understand that using AQ salt at the wrong dose or too frequently can cause liver damage so you are not wrong. I trust it to help with these minor cases of fin rot.

You probably were reading about fin regrowth.
As fin rot is curing, there will also be fin retro with. By adding Stress coat+ will help with fin regrowth. Usually the black rot will fall of and you will see white tips and finally the natural color of the betta.

In my case, I increased the dosage to 10cc/1g from day 6-10. You may want to try that and look for the black edges to fall off or turning to grey. Then when that part is gone, you will see white tips of fin regrowth, the the white tips will change to the color of the fin. Adding Stress Coat+ will help speed things up, too.

http://bettasplendid.weebly.com/fin-rot-101.html <-- this was what I used when I first had a case of finrot over a year ago and it worked great. Okay, I've got my facts straight now I think.
Aquarium salt predisolved for fin rot/fin fungus and then to help heal just stress coat, good warm and clean water. If this is right I'll stop lurking lol

1cc (Centimeter Cube) = 1mL, 1dm3 = 1Litter = 1000 cc and weight exactly 1kilogram (Believe it or not, the metric system was implemented/decreed by Napoleon Bonaparte)

I am still confused on the use of Aquarium Salt. Some (even Thailand Betta breeders) recommend adding salt to the water to prevent Fungus and Itch, and yet I read here that Salt damage Betta's liver.
