Use with API PIMAFIX to synergistically treat a broad range of infections. MELAFIX can be used with all API products, including medications and water conditioners. Laboratory studies proved that MELAFIX is safe for even the most delicate fish species, including tetras, discus fry and scale-less fish like Clown Loaches. MELAFIX has been tested and found to be safe in reef aquariums containing invertebrates such as live coral and anemones. Treating with MELAFIX will not harm the biological filter. MELAFIX is harmless to live aquarium plants.

API recommends turning off the protein skimmer and UV sterilizer when treating with MELAFIX.

Note: a slight harmless foaming may occur during the treatment.
