It's 1 tsp per gallon, so about a teaspoon and a half.

Just a suggestion on the salt treatment. Get a 1 gallon jug, fill that with water and mix the salt into that. This way you don't have to guess on the exact amount of salt needed.

Oh, okay! Thanks! Will try that!
Update: Muffin now fully eats freeze-dried bloodworms. I'm going to try, tonight, to see if he'll eat pellets. Tomorrow I'm going to do a water-change! Hope he won't be too stressed!

Muffin sounds like such a cutie. Was he stressed by the water change?

Yeah, actually, he was. He seemed really freaked, especially when I scooped water out of the tank, but now he's totally fine. Today he gorged himself on pellets- LOL! Now I feed him 3 Hikari Baby Pellets in the morning, and a pinch of FD bloodworms in the night.
Today I went out to get some meds. Currently, I'm dosing on BettaFix and Aquarium Salt.

BTW, thanks, Sakura8 for all the help.

No problem, I haven't done much, you've done all the work. Sorry to hear he got a little stressed by the water change. But he'll probably get used to it, since the way we do water changes are different from the way they do them in big tanks at pet stores. But it's amazing what a little food can do to a betta's short term memory. Water change, what water change? Mm, pellets.

Yeah, thanks. Will let you know how it goes. I will post a pic soon, but his fins seem to be joining at the end... their light and transparent almost at the rims. Is this a good or a bad sign?
