    Melafix

    [FONT=&quot]Link to product description [/FONT]
    http://aquariumpharm.com/Products/Product.aspx?ProductID=56

    [FONT=&quot]Price range[/FONT]
    $7.99 for 8oz.

    [FONT=&quot]Pros[/FONT]
    None.

    [FONT=&quot]Cons[/FONT]
    Aside from being a con? It doesn't work.

    [FONT=&quot]Star rating (1-5 with 5 being the best)[/FONT]
    1

    [FONT=&quot]How long have you used the product?[/FONT]
    Used product for 7 days to treat external infection on two fish. Both died - one after three days of treatment, the other after a week.

    [FONT=&quot]Build quality and value for your money. [/FONT]
    None. Better to just set those dollar bills on fire or wipe your behind with them rather than waste it on this stuff.

    [FONT=&quot]Other comments
    [/FONT]It did smell nice, but even that's not a plus because the essential oil which provides the smell and is the "active" ingredient (more like inactive), will leave a greasy residue in your filter media -- all of it -- sponge, filter rings, and carbon. Just gross.

    Don't waste your money on this stuff.

    I'm sorry to see you've had a bad experience with this product. I will have to say though that I have had nothing but luck with mine. I use it frequently when any bacterial infections or ripped fins/scales comes along.

    This product has saved many of my angels lives.
