Best price on the net and Pet Mountain shipped my order very fast! Thanks so much!
Used this to treat a 5K gal. Koi pond which had an unknown pathogen affecting our fish. The symptoms have been bloating (in some fish), lethargy (not all fish), slight fading of color & the water was slightly clouded. Since the symptoms were not "identifiable" as a specific disease or fungus we decided to treat the whole pond for a total of 10 days. We started with Melafix (1 pint/5K gal) for the first 3 days, overlapped treatment with Pimafix (1 pint/5K gal) for 7 days. Our pond is clear, the fish color has returned, no bloated fish (not sure why the fish bloated but they were not lopsided as when the swim bladder is affected). I appreciate that I can use both products at once & I do not have to worry about toxicity. After a treatment we do a partial water change & pump the water directly onto the trees in the orchard.
We have had a koi pond for 11 years and have always used the Melafix Antibacterial Remedy for our fish. It's a great product and seems to work very well. We clean our pond every spring and after removing the fish and keeping them in a holding tank, some of them come out a little worse for wear, but the Melafix seems to work wonders for them. We have most of our original koi, except for those taken by herons, and quite a few more because of reproduction of our happy koi family. So, it goes without saying, that we will continue to use the Melafix products to keep them well and happy.
Excellent treatment for ailing Koi. I used in combination w/Pimafix at the first sign of illness and treated the pond for the full 7 days. My Koi is back to normal now. Thanks!
I used Melafix in combination with Pimafix and my Koi is healthy again. I followed the directions completely and medicated my 1800 gallon pond for 7 days. I also think it's important to begin the treatment at the first sign of a problem. So I keep extra Melafix and Pimafix available.
Product was received in perfect condition packaged well and arrived quickly.
I inherited a Koi Pond with a home purchase. The koi had been neglected for some time and were in need of TLC, as was the pond. Upon reconditioning the water, I needed to medicate the Koi. I used the Melafix and Pimafix as directed and now my Koi are healthy and spawning! Thank You for these products! The benefits are remarkable!
A few of my Koi and comets were struggling with bacterial and fungal infections after a harsh winter. We cleaned the 3000 gal water garden and treated with a combination of Pond Care's MelaFix and PimaFix for 7 days. The treatment was very effective and the fish are all healthy. Pet Mountain is both prompt and accurate when processing an order.
Melafix is a must-have for any fish-keeper. I use it when adding new fish, or any time that I see evidence of stress in my tanks. It calms aggressiveness in my over-crowded cichlid tanks, especially after a water change or cleaning when they get far more territorial. I've saved a lot of grief using Melafix and Pimafix, and since they're herbal remedies they're much safer to use than other treatments.
I highly recommend Melafix for treating fish with fin and skin injuries/scratches or if minor bacterial problems are present. This "pond" version is 5 times more concentrated compared to those you can buy in pet stores, so this is a good choice for big aquarium setups (I have over 40). Pet Mountain's pricing is excellent, I definitely will buy again from them.
This is the stuff the "pros" recommend for quarantining your new fish....excellent for your koi when stressed too! I use it when moving my fish or getting any new ones.
