Melafix? What do u think...

Recommended Posts

I used Melafix when my curviceps pair developed a very bad case of fin rot on thier caudal fins. I put them in a hospital tank and treated with melafix and daily 50% water changes. Both curviceps caudal fins have both regrown fully.

Out of interest I'd love to know how my curviceps developed fin rot in the first place. They shared a 3'x18" tank with lemon tetras and 4 L397's. None of the lemon tetras or plecos showed any signs of fin rot, and I am religious on water changes, every second or third day.

Good question that. Not sure, as I didn't think to check when I've used it. But the instructions recommend a 25% water change after 7 days of use so that's possibly to allow for changes to water hardness
