Melafix

I'm getting pretty desperate here. Vulcan has had a fungal infection for about 4 weeks now, and he's also battling fin rot. Salt baths are doing squat for him. The only type of medication I have is Melafix, and my parents won't let me buy anything else. I've heard Melafix is bad for bettas, but I have nothing else. Should I use it, or just keep with salt baths? If I should use it, how much? I've heard it's much stronger than other medications, and thus more dangerous to use. Help me ): Vulcan isn't doing so well these days.

:( I hope Vulcan gets better soon!!! If you can get meds, Jungle Fungus Eliminator is a good medicine!

I agree with MrVampire. Water it down or just use half a dosage.
