Tips : 
Here is what other list members think :
Pegasus : I've made a gallon jug of this & keep it capped.  I made the batch when all my breeding attempts kept failing.  As each female was removed from the unsuccessful spawning, I put them in a container of 1 part fresh, but treated water & 1 part BettaMax tonic.  I change the overall water every third day.  I do this for about 3 applications & then she goes back in the Bordello.
