All the bettas I've ever used melafix/bettafix on have been absolutely fine. I know that there is some mixed opinions on the subject, but I've never had a problem
But melafix doesn't treat the root cause of fin rot, it's more of an antiseptic, and not an antibiotic. If you're going to treat for finrot, you most likely need an antibiotic like Maracyn-2.
