Question Bettafix and columnaris

Does anyone know if bettafix helps with columnaris? I know one is not supposed to use it with bettas but I cant find maracyn or any other meds locally and by the time they get here via mail, it may be too late. I laready lost 3 girls. I tried maracyn oxy but that did nothing to help them. I used a little less then the recommended dosage though.

She is currently floating in a cup in the soroity and has 2 white dots and it looks like something is eating away her mouth?? I didnt see any fuzzies though. Im assuming its whatever killed the other girls. Two were columnaris, not sure if India was or not. Sine she was white, any fuzz would of been hard to see. Two died in 48 hours, India held on for about 3 or so weeks

if it was columnarious then it was two different kinds. There is one that will kill in a day or two, and there is a slower acting one.
I've only had luck with saving one fish from columnarious and I think it was because it was such a small infestation. I used aq salt and clean water only for him. Sorry I can't give you more useful advice tiki. *hugs* get better little fish

I dont see the spot on her anymore and her cloudy eye cleared up.
She's way to big for the tiny cup, so i set her free in the tank. Hopefully nothing else will go wrong. I hope. I shall keep a close watch on all of them though

Be prepared for it to make a comeback randomly. That stuff is a monster. I think I finally killed it all off but it took a scary treatment regiment
