    Company

    Model
    Melafix

    Link to product description
    http://aquariumpharm.com/Products/Pr...x?ProductID=56

    Price range
    $7.99 for 8oz.

    Pros
    None.

    Cons
    Aside from being a con? It doesn't work.

    Star rating (1-5 with 5 being the best)
    1

    How long have you used the product?
    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.

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

    Other comments
    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.
    2 gallon hex: 3 Rosy Red Minnows, gravel with ugf.
    10 gallon QT: 1 Moor (Niban the Second), sand substrate, with HOB AqualClear 20.
    New 29 Gallon coming soon! Or Should I just get it over with and buy a 55?

    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.

    I'm sorry you see this product this way. I have used it for just about everything and have had great success.
