Maracyn 2 for fin rot.

My Betta has a pretty bad case of fin rot. I'm going to treat him with Maracyn-2.
Should I leave him in his tank? (10gallon) or put him in a 2.5g tank that im not using? It says that I have to add two tablets per 10 gallons on the first day, and on the second through fifth day, add 1 packet per 10 gallons of water.

I'm a bit confused on how to do that in a 2.5 gallon tank. Does anybody have any advice?

You can leave him in the 10 gallon but take -everything- out of itt...and then start treating his fins...

For a gallon dosage of Maracyn 1 and 2 dissolve 1 tablet in 10 teaspoons of water. Add 1 teaspoon of concentrate per gallon. It will be fine to treat him in the 2.5 gakllon tank. I think it would be easier and use less water. This info came from Healthybetta.com.
