I recommend Seachem Kanaplex, General Cure, and Maracyn Two to have on hand at all times.

Do you have a link for the crystals? I think I have some...got it from a friend, and it wasn't labeled...I've had it for a while...Yellow powdery crystals...was told it was Nitrofurazone by a fish/chem friend.

when i get a chance to go to Plattsburg i'll get some grade A meds.

thank yiou very much, i'll get kanaplex and maracyn 2 one the first opportunity i have to go to Plattsburg

an update
march 26, put 3.5tsp into the tank (bit above 2g total with decor)
march 29 25%wc and 2 tsp into the new water total for a small half gal over dose (though first 3 days were a bit under dosed)
today his anal and dorsal dont show any easily noticeable signs of rot. his caudals are still going slowly but brown edges are less noticeable. i dont know if tis temporary remission or healing.
i dont know how long i can use the meds before causing harm to the fish as i didnt get a labeled bottle. i did read somewhere use until cured but i wont fully trust that until i see an actual label.

i dont have it myself, the store put them into an empty 138g fish food bottle. though they did have a huge bottle that was properly labeled in the store. i should probably drop by there to read the labels myself in the next few days.

I would say you can continue with treatment for at least another three or four days. In some severe cases, treatment can last for two weeks or more.

ive just done a 100wc for nelliel and ive removed nearly all traces of the medication from his water. his fins dont show any signs of rot atm and its been like that for 4 days. i'll monitor his fins for any new signs of reoccuring. ive had him on meds for 11 days.

im glad that i went into that mom/pop pet store several months ago. the store didnt keep the cleanest fish tanks nor exceptional care for betta but it was the only store that had JFE. i bought it on a whim, not being sure if id ever have to use it.

im very glad also though it'll be more reassuring to not see any signs of it within a week. his case is/was dificult to deal with the mixed signs or recovery and reinfection.
