My beta also has popeye and I bought Maracyn II for him. If Maracyn is administered in doses like Maracyn II, I would just use proportions to get the right amount. So, say for instance it is asking you to 2 packets per 10 g of water on the first day and 1 packet each day after that. You say you are using a 1 g bowl? I have a 2.5 g tank with only that one beta in it, so I also had to do the math. It's not accurate since there aren't really measurement units, but try this:So while i was at petsmart today i happened to notice a very beautiful crowntail betta, that happened to have popeye. i showed it to the manager and she let me have him for free. i bought some maracyn to treat it with, but the dosage is one packet for 10 gallons of water..... i do plan to divide one of my current ten gallon tanks to put him in once he gets better. but i dont know how to dose out this medication and treat him in the hospital tank he's in. right now he is in a heated 1 gallon bowl with water that has been conditioned and has aquarium salt added. i dont really know how to proceed from here :/ how much do i give him? how do i measure it out? and can i leave the heater in the tank when i add the maracyn? help!
2 packets/10 g water=x packets/1 g water
2 packets/10 g water=0.20 packets/1 g water
every day after that is 0.1 packets. Now this is hard to really know how much that is. I sort of divided the packet into parts, first half, then quarters. Draw some lines on the packets and that could help visually with the measurements. If the Maracyn does't work, like the Maracyn II it didn't for me, try epsom salt. I just added it to my tank, so I don't have results yet. hoping it works!
lol I hope what I said even helps.
