It will get rid of the fin rot... But some people doesn't realize it takes a long time for the fins to heal. The meds don't make your fish regenerate their fins, but cures the fin rot the the fins can actually grow back.
I've never used bettafix but melafix works great.
You could also try API liquid fungus cure. It works and its not to strong, its used for preventing fungus on eggs. So it will not harm your fish, but!!! It causes your tank water to go this funky green colour, so take out any decorations that it might stain. And putting active carbon in your filter will remove the green colour once the treatment is finished.
Bettafix/Melafix alone usually aren't enough to cure fin rot. I use a combination of Bettafix/Melafix and Pimafix. The Pimafix does more to actually cure the problem, while the Melafix works to repair the damaged fins.
so what should i exactly get? Like should i get like melafix, bettafix, or anything else?Can someone walk me through the steps because i am not the best about following directions because htey normally don't give you very good directions! Thank you. I have sorta calmed down again...
