Hello, all. I JUST today decided to give my betta fish (Vladimir) an early Christmas present of a bigger tank, better heater, and treats (upgraded from a 2.5g bowl with those little pad heaters under the gravel). Well, while shopping, I spotted another white and black double tail betta that I immediately fell for. So I ended up getting a 10g tank (which also included light, filter, and heater) and a divider.
The reason I mention all of the above is because I also got some Betta Fix medication for damaged fins/skin. Vlad seems to have a little wear and tear on his fins that I'd love to see heal up. My only concern is applying the liquid medicine to the tank when the new fish, Tristanislav, is perfectly healthy from what I can see.
So in short, would applying the medication to the water be harmful to Tristan? If not, would I give the recommended dosage of medicine for the 10g or some smaller amount since it's only one fish on one half of the bowl? (The divider separates them, but it's still got holes in it).
Thanks in advance!
