Hex-A-Mit is an effective, colorless aid in aquariums for the treatment and prevention of parasitic protozoans, hexamita, discus and angel disease, Bloat, unexplained death, holes in the head and sinus area, weight loss due to not eating, marine and freshwater velvet, and cryptocaryon irritans. It is safe in the community tank and will not affect biological filter beds.
This stuff worked very well but it killed the biological filter in my established tank. When the instructions suggest using a quarantine tank to treat just one fish, take this to mean "no, really, we were just joking when we said it does not affect the biological filter, you should use a quarantine tank!" My angelfish with the slight fungal problem survived the treatment, but the rapid ammonia buildup eventually killed it (and two Bolivian Rams with it). Luckily I was able to save the other fish by placing them in another tank. I was surprised to see extremely high nitrites and ammonia in a tank that hadn't had any in the 4 months since it completed its cycle (with nof fish mortalities), so the only conclusion I could draw was that it must have been the medication. I even dosed the stuff at less than 50% of what the instructions recommended. It did a great job curing the fungus, but do not use this product on an established tank unless you must.

"The Bloat cure all"
I have used this medicine for years to cure cases of bloat and have only lost 3 fish to the disease; all others were spared because of it.
