Question about fungal medication

I have my betta in a 2 gallon aquarium, and I noticed his fins were kind of jagged, which is making me suspect fin rot. I just bought Jungle Lifeguard all in one treatment (slow release). However, the treatment is for 5 gallon tanks. How do I administer the medication without overmedicating him? I would think that cutting the tablets would cause the medication to dissipate at a quicker rate.

Honestly , I wouldn't use those tabs. They didn't do a thing to help my fish, I think it made him worse.However, the way I used it for my 1 gallon QT was that I put the tab in 5 tbs. of warm water, let the tab dissolve, then it is 1tbs per gallon.

Do you have a suggestion for a good medication for finrot? His case isn't anything too severe, but there are very small pieces of his tailfin starting to come off.

I wish I could give better suggestions, my fish Cleo is currently battling finrot at the moment as well.I have tried bettafix and a few of those tabs so far, and it didn't seem to help at all. I have heard that finrot should heal itself with aquarium salt and clean water if it is a mild case, I have also heard that maracyn two works well also.
Bettatalk has a list of medications that can be used for finrot. I plan on checking out petco and see what they have tomorrow.
