Question with treating betta fish injuries - update

sleeplessrat

so a few days ago my betta mark got stuck in the thing that helped slow down the water pressure. She got pretty banged up on her left side. She scratched her eye and now its hazey but its not popping out of her head and she also has a scratch on the left side of her head. Shes doing the best she can right now with show of improvement in her fins and shes not laying down on the bottom as much which is good. But i wanna know how i should go about treating her eye- should i just use the medicine and indian almond leaves or should i get a separate thing to treat her eye?

you would do it as a bath for about 10 minutes once a day. you should be able to find it at your local pharmacy just make sure it is unscented pure epson salt.

I use 1 table spoon per gallon but it think you can up it to two.

Yes. A rubbermaid or other tote will work for this. Just make sure it's filled with tank water.

Mark has took me by surprise- but i also underestimated her- just a few days ago she was in an accident with the thing that slows down water flow in her tank- her left side got jacked up a bit but her eye was also foggy- i havent been able to go out and get her medicine just yet but man shes healing up quick-

[i am aware that shes a bit overweight still working on dialing it down]
