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.

None. Better to just set those dollar bills on fire or wipe your behind with them rather than waste it on this stuff.

[/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 you see this product this way. I have used it for just about everything and have had great success.
