Need some advice on bettafix

Just picked a bottle of this stuff at petco ,the bottle says half a teaspoon per gallon ,it says to use this amount for 7 days and to change the water on the 7th day,that sounds to long to go without a water change to me.

Bettafix is not recommended. Actually anything with -fix is not recommended. They all contain tea tree oil and that can damage their labyrinth organ.

What are you using it for? I would recommend aquarium salt instead.

I noticed a split in his rear fin and a small piece missing and he is starting to look a little frayed in some areas,other than that he eats fine and is active soon as i go over to him he comes looking for food.I have another post with a pic on this i think i may have done it by small temp fluctuations by turning on the ac.I have moved him to another part of the room on the suggestion from another member here on this site and i keep the ac running much lower .

You're still going to use it?
And clean water will heal fins, you don't need any other chemicals in the water for that.
