My fish act like it's normal water. When I'm treating them for fin rot, before I decided to use meds, I keep them in a one gallon tank with 1 tsp of water which is a salt bath.

Individual fish will react differently.

Okay thank you! He still looks bad. I wish the healing would be almost instant!

He seemed to act a little weird last night after putting him back in his quarantine with some BettaFix. I might just go back to jungle Fungus Eliminator.
I'm thinking about adding a small amount of Aquarium salt to his quarantine as well to possibly speed up the healing process.
I just don't want things to get worse and have to use MUCH stronger meds.
The reason I'm using meds on top of the salt baths is because it has gotten to that point. I should have done the salt baths immediately, but I didn't.
I hope his fins start healing quickly, I know he'll be big a beautiful when he does!

Sounds like you are doing all the right things. I would certainly add some salt to the quarantine as well. Just keep changing 100% of the quarantine water daily. and continue as you are, he should be back to good health soon!

Salt dip for 5 mins is what I did for my betta. Same as described above except i was advised to use part of her current water for the salt dip and then put new treated water in like a 40% water change and to give her two days to recover from the stress. She had an open wound that took half her back and still has the will to survive.

I usually do not use the current water for the dip. If there is anything in the tank water adding to the issue, using it in the dip is not a good idea. If it is unrelated to water and is damage from females getting in a fight or something of that nature then maybe using some tank water would be ok to reduce stress.

Question: Well i just got the aquarium salt and it says to add 1/2 teaspoon per gallon is that right or should i do the full teaspoon for the salt bath?

One more thing, how many days should you do salt baths for a betta with torn fins?
