"For fin problems...the best"
I use it for fish with damaged fins (sometimes quite heavily) and the results are remarkable. Very easy to use and safe...I highly recommend it.

"It Smells Nice"
After losing more than half its tail in a territorial dispute, my 3.5" GT was in a 10g QT for 2 weeks. After an initial treatment of Maracyn to prevent infection the 10g w/GT received frequent water-changes with a dosing of MelaFix each time. The finnage grew back completely with most of its color. This reviewer gave a neutral score of "5" for effectiveness since it is difficult to determine whether to attribute the full recovery to the MelaFix or to the frequent water-changes. One thing is for sure, MelaFix has a nice smell.

"One of the best..."
I use MelaFix whenever I introduce a new fish into any tank, and it immediately reduces stress, increases missing fin growth, and helps eliminate any toxins that come along with the new fish. I would recommend that anyone use this for the same purpose, in addition to its medicinal properties. A great, cheap, effective product!

"Great product"
I can not say enough about this product. MelaFix is the best product no matter what illness your fish have. I have even started to add this to my tank ever other week. I can see fungus, scratches, etc heal within the week. Please try this.....

"Great medication"
This is a very good overall medication, use it first and then ask what is wrong with your fish.

"Superior product"
This is a fish miracle liquid. I got a really beaten up Eureka red whose fins were torn to pieces and missing. Within 3 days of treatment the fins were growing back and his wounds were healed. He required no other medication.

"Help for hopeless cases..."
I was sceptical when I first tried it, but my when I received a Front that was so beaten up she couldn't swim away from the filter intake, I decided to try it. She's had 7 days of treatment, and frankly I'm thrilled she is even alive, but she also has noticable fin growth. I also add it to my 55g whenever anyone looks a little frayed, and it seems to help.

"Excellent "all-arounder""
This stuff is GREAT. I buy a big container of it from Petsmart for something around $15 Canadian and it lasts a LONG time. I use it whenever I add new fish to the tank, notice damage on fins/body of other fish and even when doing water changes. It makes the water smell nice too!

Couldn't recommend this product more highly. Nothing but positive results with it.

"Top Notch"
I purchased some Melafix after discovering a large (dime sized) open wound on a bala in a community tank. I followed the directions to the tee, treating the whole tank and it worked wonderfully! Noticed a difference in a couple of days. It had no ill effect on the other tank inhabitants nor the biological filter. Very happy with the product.

"I like Melafix"
I have used this on fish with torn fins and so forth. It helped them recover quickly. It is also found in just about any pet section of any store.

"we are very happy with this product!"
We only just started to use this but wow are we happy…… we even went out and got a big bottle just to keep on hand at the sign of torn fins and such. Every time we have used it we have notice fast recovery of fin damage.. so far that is all we have used it for.... And if you like the smell of tea tree oil then you will like it even more LOL……

"A must have"
Has never failed to provide me with remarkable results.
I use it as directed in a small hospital tank to save some $$. All natural. All good. Can't think of anything negative about it other than cost.
