Can I add AQ Salts to whole tank?

Hi, I have a divided tank. Both of my boys have a small case of fin rot. Instead of QT both of them, can I add salts to the whole tank? If so, will I still have to do 100% water chamges since there is a filter? Thank you!

The 100% water changes we all suggest when one is sick is beneficial to sick bettas. Clean water will sometimes fix most things on its own, but most people also qt their fish in small hospital tanks. The general rule of thumb with filters is remove it before starting any medication.

Okay. Thanks. I recently moved my two bettas in a divided tank and my one betta seemed to have quickly contracted the sickness on monday. Last night, I saw my other betta had red droplets onhis fins and now his fins are all riped up. I also see white on the tips of my first betta's tail. I guess regrowth?

if their clearish white then yeah regrowth, if their cloudy white then thats a fungus. Oh also before you add the salt make sure you remove any snails.
