Question Epsom salts for pop eye

I was wondering how much epsom salts should be added per gallon of tank water to treat pop eye in Betta fish. Thanks!

1 teaspoon per gallon.

do not add it undissolved to the tank.

remove a cup of water and dissolve the salt in that. then every 15 minutes or so add a bit of the salted water back into the tank until all the water has been returned.
