Exclamation Help! Betta Emergency!

So I just realized that yesterday my betta, Roy, has a severe case of fin rot. I changed his water and used Just Start dechlorinator. It's supposed to help heal torn or frayed fins caused by fighting or disease. I got up this morning to check on him and part of his tail fell off. I can't go to petco till later today. Is there anything right now I can do for him? I'm going to petco to get API Splendid Betta BettaFix Remedy. I hope it helps Roy heal. :(

either 1/2 teaspoon oer gallon epsom salt or aquarium salt and 78F water temp and move him to a small tank jar act. to help with the fin healing since fish swim more in bigger space!

I'd say get AQ Salt instead (1 tsp/gallon for 7 days) since I've heard a lot of horror stories about Bettafix.

You should be using dechlorinator all the time, it removes the nasties in tap water to make it safe for your fishy to live in. Dunno about the helping heal part...clean water helps with the healing.

With Fin Rot, you have to change the water everyday to help with the healing.

EDIT: Moon, Esposm is for bloating and constipation o.o
