columnaris treatment for betta fish quality plays a vital role in the prevention and cure of this disease. Prior to initial dosing of any medication to the aquarium, one should perform a large water change (30-50%) with a thorough gravel cleaning in order to remove excess detritus and waste from the substrate.

There are several medications in the marketplace to treat Columnaris. Some persons advocate using copper sulphate, but in our opinion, the risk of further damage to the gills of the fish, is too great, and we do not recommend this drug for this disease.  


  1. treat the tank with 1 tablespoon salt per five gallons along with the antibiotic.
  2. you need to treat the tank with Maracyn and Maracyn-two together at the same time, in order for the treatment to be most effective
