    I've had a group of blind cave teras on a 10 gal quarantine for about 4 days now, and they seem fine other than a couple of them have their fins nipped a bit. My question is as follows: is it safe to use melafix on them, since they are teras, and I get the impression tetras are sensitive to some meds. I have never used melafix before, so pardon my ignorance on this question ;)

    Melafix is an herbal remedy that I have used often. I think that it works pretty well and I believe that it is safe for all fish. If you are worried, you could start with a half dose. Good luck!
