Can AP (Aquarium Products) Quick Cure be used on bettas?

My male betta has some fin damage and I was just wondering if it is safe for me to use Aquarium Products Quick Cure for treatment? The ingredients are formalin and malachite green. Are these safe chemicals for bettas to be in?

PS - I have tried aquarium salt, and although it seems to give him energy it hasn't helped with the fin damage. His fins are light brownish and see through on the ends. Is there another treatment option I should consider??

Sounds like fin nipping if it is that just aquarium salt.

These ingredients are generally used in curing fungal infections. I don't think it's worth putting him through the stress of medication for something that would be ineffective. Something with metronidazole or praziquantel would do a better job.
Are you sure he's not ripping his fins on anything?

I have never seen him biting at his fins. He appears to be happy and healthy, just that his fin coloration is a little bit off. Any other ideas for the discoloration?
