Fin Rot on Nova.

Me and Nova have been battling fin rot. I have been doing water changes, but it doesn't seem to help. I know it helps, but I don't think it is enough. What else can I do to help him? I heard garlic would work, how should I go about that? Is there any medicines that will help? He is in a 2 gallon Petco Mini Hex Tank. Any tips would be great.

I have Maracyn 1, but I want to get number. But will number 1 be okay. Also, how should I go with the dosage?

Dissolve 1 tablet in 10 tablespoons of water. Add 1 tablespoon of concentrate mixture to 1 gallon of water. So that would be 2 tablespoons for your 2 gallon tank.

1 packet is probably equasl to 1 tablet so I guess it would be ok. How mych does 1 packet treat? How many gallons?
