Aquarium salt...length of treatment?

Hi. I have had my bettas for three weeks now. Given as a gift for my son from my stepdaughter, they both had some fin rot when I first brought them home. I treated them with aquarium salt baths for four days, about ten minutes a day. I don't currently add aq salt to their tanks. My blue one has healed beautifully, but my red one still has some black at the edge of his tailfin, however I am noticing a lot of fin regrowth on all of his fins. My question is, did I treat him long enough with the salt baths? I have him in a filtered, heated 1Gal and I do 100% water changes every other day.

Generally it's less stressful to have the aq salt in with them all the time for treatment and change the water every day. The max for that method is 10 days of 24 hour salt treatment at 1-3 tsp/gal.

I'd say if you're not seeing any rot, you'll be ok with clean water.
