Question How much AQ salt should I add?

I just got a Betta from terrible conditions. He needs salt most likely, how much should I add to a 1.5 gallon tank?

General treatment dosage is 1tsp/gal up to 3tsp/gal depending on what and why you are treating-salt use for no longer than 10 days is best....also, if treatment is for wounds, injuries, fin damage-making 100% daily water changes will be helpful in the healing process as well as adding tannins and feeding high protein diet

If it is swelling, buoyancy, constipation, bloat type issue I would use Epsom salt not aquarium salt

It's his fins and maybe some other parts of his body /= I'll do a Tsp and a half of AQ salt for up to a week with often water changes. Hopefully this wll encourage healing!
