My Fred is in QT, so I will be changing water every day until his mild fin rot is healed. I used the Aqueon Betta Bowl Plus Water Conditioner to prep my water. Should I start using the Prime by SeaChem instead?
Also, I am not sure what is the portion for my 2-gallon bow tank with filter. It says 5ML for 50 gallons. That would make 0.20 ML for my 2-gallon tank. I do not have anything to measure that, would three drops with a pipet be good enough?
