My box of salt says a teaspoon per 5 gallons. I'd say a little less than 1/4 teaspoon for a gallon.I had written down a teaspoon per gallon in my notes. I copied it from a post on here but 1 teaspoon per gallon seems like an awful lot. They're bettas not pretzels. lol
It may take a couple of weeks for him to get better.

lol okay thank you. So I should keep him in the gallon tank the whole time? Just want to make sure. I should make sure all signs of fin rot are gone right?? Thanks again.

I would go ahead and treat him in the gallon tank. If you are using medication, use it for however long it says on the bottle. I don't think it would hurt to use the salt until the finrot is gone.

My little Flounder has this same lethergy (

I changed the water on Sat. and usually do every 3 days or so. He's just in a 1/2 gal tank for now. The day after I changed the water he began to just hang at the top of the water, with his little (nose?) at the water line. He too, would eat everything in site and was always so happy. Now....nothing. When I changed the water I use water that has sat for several days as well as de-chlorinator. The water is cooler that what I dump out (79*) but I don't know how I could warm it.

This time I did forget the sea salt. And now, can't remember what you told me on how much to put in.

What shall I do??
