Aquarium Pharmaceuticals® API Professional Strength MelaFix 64oz Information




Do you want your pet fish and your other reef life to live longer and look better? Want to keep your aquarium at its best for a long time? If so, then the Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Professional Strength Melafix from Pet Store is just the right product for you. It comes in a 64-oz. bottle that is enough to maintain your tank and keep your pets healthy for a long time. You can use this special tonic regardless of what type of water you are using, whether it be freshwater, tap water, or saltwater.

The Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Professional Strength Melafix allows your installed filters and aerators to work normally without the problem of the tonic being removed when you pour it in. This solution will also not change your water's balance, pH level, and color, so you can maintain your tank longer and better.

The Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Professional Strength Melafix is also quite good for your pets. This tonic is primarily designed to heal your pets' wounds without having to take it out of the water. It can cure more serious illnesses like tail rots and dangerous wounds, such as a damaged fin. This is definitely a good substance to have around.

To make sure that your aquatic pets are healthy, and your tank clean, the Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Professional Strength Melafix is your best solution.

Heals open wounds & abrasions, treats fin and tail rot, eye cloud, mouth fungus and promotes regrowth of damaged fin rays & tissue. Will not adversely affect the biological filter, alter the pH, or discolor water. Safe for reef aquariums and live plants. For use in fresh or salt water.

Do NOT treat your display tank

Comments: This stuff works, BUT I would not recommend treating your display tanks with it. 1) This stuff smells really strong. So the room will smell really, really bad for as long as you use it (7 days). 2) This stuff creates a lot of bubbles so you can't run the skimmer while using it. I lost one coral and one fish because of it. The coral died because the water quality deteriorated dramatically when using this. I used this 3 weeks ago and made two 30% water changes and I still can't run my skimmer. I even bought another skimmer and am trying that one right now. After 3 days break in the new skimmer also creates way too many bubbles. I will make another 30-50% water change this weekend and hopefully get rid of any remaining medication in the water. Other then that it really works. It did heal one of my fish who had cuts/infections. But I would higly recommend using a quarantine tank if you have one. I will not use this again on my display tank.

Comments: I accidently purchased the large container of this, and I have a 35 gallon tank. Needless to say using 1/2 a teaspoon of extra strength, I'll be set for a couple decades! I had a case of Cotton Eye on one of my fish after 4 days dosing with this stuff it disapeared and it's been 1 month since I dosed and it has not come back.

Melafix/ Pimafix

Comments: I used both melafix and Pimafix together to treat velevt and cloudy eye on my 75g african cichlid tank. I lost one fish prior to treatment. After the first day of treatment,there was foaming and alot of cloudy water and definalty the fresh clean scent of Melaleuca throughout the house. My fish were QUITE unhappy about the treatment, BUT the velvet and cloudy eye improved within the first two treatments. We are on the 5th day now and I can tell you its 100% cleared up, my fish are adapting to the cloud and foam (picky little bugars) and we have had not one more loss of life.. This stuff works, and it doesnt destroy the bio you already have going in your filters - a major plus.

Comments: I had/have a rather extreme case of fin rot on a rabbit fish. After about 4 treatments I can say its definitely not gotten any worse and I would like to believe that I'm seeing some re-growth. What I would add to that is that the tank water has filled the room with a delicious tea scent.
