I hope he decides to put his Betta in there! It will do wonders for the fin rot. Be careful dosing melafix on bettas. Use a 1/5 dose if you decide to use it. IMO/E the bigger tank with more water and a dose of salt will work better than the melafix.

Thanks... I was thinking that if we were going to treat the betta, we would put it in the 1g and treat it in there... that way we need less of it to dose, and it doesn't mess up a cycling tank.

That's what I meant lol. Snype2live was suggesting that the line was the max it should be submerged. But it is fully submersible

Edit-whoops lol I thought you quoted my post above about the heater. Nvm

Melafix won't effect the filter in any way. Treating a cycled/cycling tank is fine.

Oh, then maybe I will use it, but the new tank's filter has carbon in it and there is no way to take it out other than to cut a whole new piece of filter floss.
