Sorry to butt in, but this site is SO informative, I wish I knew about this months ago before my set-up and the many bettas I mysteriously lost due to lack of knowledge. Since signing-on i've been reading various post and what you said about Mettafix sounds about right. The pet stores near me all swear by it and said use it, but each time I did, my bettas died afterwards.

If you do use it you need to use it in a half dose. That's what I used when I did use it, but it didn't help my fish at all, nor her them either.

Yea, that's one of the issues. You have to go with smaller doses, hence why there is Bettafix. It's a fifth of the concentration (if I remember correctly).

Personally, I have used it on all of my betta issues and have had no problems. It helped my fin rot issue with Marlboro and helped with some damaged girls when I had a sorority (never doing that again...).
