Betta Fins

I have a female betta who I used to keep in with a couple of tetras, until they started nipping at her fins. I moved her into her own tank but the ends of her fins are all white and frayed. Anyone know how I can help her fins heal? Shes got good water quality going on, but what else should I do?

Melafix or Bettafix. Melafix at 1/10th the doseage I think, not sure but is supposed tobe diluted either way. Bettafix is diluted from what I know of it.

I've used Melafix at 1/5 the dosage amount. BettaFix is the same stuff, just already diluted for ya. Depending on the size of the tank she's currently in, it might be easier to get the BettaFix and just put in the correct amount of drops instead of doing all the math with the Melafix. I found the BettaFix in the betta section of the LFS, and the Melafix in the general medicine section.

Good luck.
