What was your salt/prazi routine?

5 day rounds, 1 teaspoon per gallon of salt. i would do the water change replace the salt, then the next day do the water change and replace salt and prazi and repeat every five days. Lis gave me the guide over instagram on how to do the rounds and the spots disappeared then, but then came back, so i did one round of prazi, and before that i used melafix because her fins where slightly tearing at the rims, but i only used melafix for a week, but Mike or someone i forgot told me to not use prazi since i had already treated so he told me to do a .3 concentration of salt build up so i did and her tail semi-healed during that because it was tearing where the white is not orange and it healed. But now the spots are back.
