See that's the think. My last betta ended up having cottonmouth or something and I was told to float him in a container. I used one that had been washed with soap, and he ended up dying pretty quickly. That's why now I only use things that have not been in the kitchen lol. I was also told to double the amount of AQ salt after a day or two... That didn't work out so well.

If I rinse another container really well, would the big walmart sized betta cup be okay for one? I don't want it to be too small and end up having an ammonia problem... even though I would be changing the water every day.

The Betta cups should be fine. I think I'll end up using them if Lebron gets sick anyways.

I think it's a small one, it's around 3-5 inches high.

Yeah, the big ones are shaped like the containers that butter comes in.

O.o Butter? My butter is wrapped in paper and in a rectangle cardboard box made by the company. The cup I have is literally a cup with the lid for Bettas.

No, I know! But the cups from walmart.. at least a few years ago... were big and wide like the bowls that spreadable butter comes in.

Oh, that butter. I thought you meant the butter that you need to cut up and it needs to melt a bit to be able to spread. I saw those cups before... They were pretty wide.

Okay well I wouldn't need to double the AQ salt to 2 teaspoons would I? And is there a minimum amount of days I should use it?

1 teaspoon is enough for your case. And 10 days is maximum for Aquarium Salt until it starts to hurt him. As I said before, do you have IAL or washed dried Oak Leaves? That will help him heal and serves as a stress repellant and prevents infection.
