i don't think bettafix will do much. i had someone post on one of my threads that bettafix is bad for their labyrinth organ.


i use API Aquarium Salt and API Stress Coat. the stress coat works as a water conditioner and helps repair damaged skin and fins. and the salt stops rotting from progressing.

stress coat is a water conditioner with aloe vera, helps for slime coat also. AQ salt has healing properties and helps keep the water safe to prevent infections. it is not a long term solution to keep going on for more than 10 consecutive days. 1-2 tsp per gallon of water for AQ salt and frequent water changes during the 7-10 days will help. 100% water changes if the fish is in 1gal tank.

i beleive bettafix may be helpful once the finrot is gone but theres still the issues with the labyrinth organ for it. i personally avoid melafix and bettafix.

for the stress coat, it says 10mL (or 2tsp.) per 10 gallon. the cap has measurements on it. for my 2gal, i use 2mL.

for the salt, it says 1/2 teaspoon for a gallon or 1 Tablespoon for 5 gallons.

use it together with 100% daily water changes.
