Im searching for answers, and was hoping for some help/assistance/advice. I've read through some threads, but just figured, I should post my own thread.
I've had this beta for almost a year now. I have him in a small (quart) bowl, and I try to do changes once a week. I normally use API betta water conditioner about 12 drops. The past few months his fins seem to have been deteriorating. It may have been because I waited too long between changes, but I keep up and try to maintain it pretty routinely.
So yesterday, someone at my local pet-store recommended that I used betta fix. I bought it, did a compete water change, added betta water conditioner and "betta fix" to new water while keeping fish in a small cup of the old water. I dumped him back in the new water and that is when I found this site and read a number of post saying that I should stay away from "betta fix" altogether.
I went and bought stress guard + and some aquarium salt since that seems to be the answer i got after reading the threads. Stress guard is supposed to act as a water conditioner and a healing agent, so I figured that was the way to go.
How much stress guard is required in a quart sized bowl.
it says 5ml/10 gallons?
The betta water conditioner i have says 2.5ml/gallon. ( i always use 12 drops/quart).
And also how much salt should I use, if any at all for a quart?(1/2 tspn/gallon = how much in term of a quart. a few granules?)
Thanks for the help
