My tank is now clean of the BGA. My Betta and seven Tetras are robust and happy. I don't know if this has any connection, but my Betta lost most of the tip of his fin during this issue. But his fin is growing back and all is good.
LOL you sound like me with the double dose. That may have had a reason for the betta to lose part of his fin?

Well way to go! a little treatment goes a long way. I once just had green water- over and over I did water changes to no effect. 2 days of meds and poof! gone!

The fin issue could be from the meds.... but also potentially a separate bacterial infections (things like fin rot). Make sure to do lots of water changes, feed nutritious food and update us if there are any other behavioral or physical changes.

Giving back creates a virtuous cycle that makes everyone more successful (as long as they cycle!)
