Maracyn Two dosage?

I'm treating my betta for fin rot with Maracyn-Two. I gave the first dose yesterday. However, since the packets are for 10 gallons and I have a 2.5 gallon, I had to estimate the amount I was giving him. Does anyone know an actual dosage of Maracyn-Two for 2.5 gallons?

p.s. I'm really hoping this helps because I've tried aq. salt and bettafix and nothing has touched it...it just keeps getting worse

I am in the same situation as you i just stopped using AQ salt today, i kept him in a 1 gallon for 9 days,i also have maracyn 2 but i want to give him a break before i treat him with the maracyn.I am using ial leaves for now ,hopefully someone with more experience will chime in.You might want to contact Sakura i was told by OFL to contact her for help with the med's ,i have not contacted her yet because as i said i want to give him a break after all the daily water changes and salt .Please keep posting on your progress as it will help me and others that are new fish keepers.I forgot to mention if your 2.5 tank is cycled ,from what i have read the maracyn will kill your BB ,which means you will have to cycle your tank again.

It's a very small measurement by weight or volume.. estimating is probably just fine.

When I did mine, I used extra medicine cups and just split it up until it "looked" like equal parts.
