Hello all!

I recently noticed some cyanobacteria building up on my Amazon Sword plant. I took to YouTube and found that Aquarium Co-Op and A Gamer's Wife have both successfully treated their tanks using API brand E.M. Erythromycin. My question is do you all feel that I should set up a quarantine tank for my Betta fish while I treat the tank? Or assuming he is in good health the Betta can wait out the treatment. Thank you all for your guidance.

P.S. If you feel like reading a little more here is the whole breakdown.

Recently lost my last Betta to multi system organ failure (noted dropsy symptom) so I don't want to put any undue stress onto my new guy.

I have a 10 gallon aquarium for my one male plakat Betta named Lox aka Chonk. Tank temp is usually around 79 degrees Fahrenheit. i have once small sponge filter in the tank.

My plants include anubias and anubias nana petite, java moss, amazon sword, and marimo moss balls. The plant that I see the cyanobacteria on most is the amazon sword but I am not sure if that is relevant.
