Can you use for a Betta in a tank with no filter/circulation?

This medication is safe to use with bettas. Maracyn may cause excessive cloudiness and foam production so it is recommended to remove carbon during treatment, but maintain adequate water flow or aeration.
can you use this in planted aquariums?
Answer by • Mar 09, 2023
Some more sensitive plant species may display yellowing, but this condition generally improves after the treatment; remove any plants if concerned.
My fan-tail goldfish suffered from fin rot for 8 long months. I tried 3 other highly-recommended medications and kept the water pristine, all to no avail. Her fins continued to deteriorate. I finally tried one course of Maracyn Two and within a week her fins showed new growth! They are completely grown in now and she looks beautiful and healthy again.
