A safe, all-natural way to treat bacterial infections in saltwater fish and corals. Use to treat open, red sores and wounds, fin and tail rot, eye cloud, pop eye, body slime and mouth fungus on fish. MelaFix Marine is also used in commercial coral farms to control bacterial infections, tissue degradation and for the removal of parasitic flatworms in wild corals. MelaFix Marine can be used in all marine aquariums and has been tested and found to be safe in reef aquariums containing invertebrates, such as live corals and anemones. Treating with MelaFix Marine will not harm the biological filter in saltwater aquariums.
Directions for use
As a disease or wound treatment for marine fish and corals in the aquarium: Remove activated carbon and turn off protein skimmer. Shake bottle well. Using dosing cap on bottle, add 5 ml (1 tsp) per 10 U.S. gallons of aquarium water. Dose daily for 7 days. After 7 days, make a 25% water change. Replace activated carbon and turn on protein skimmer. The protein skimmer will collect excess foam. Be prepared to dispose of the foam as it will be significant. It may be necessary to turn down the protein skimmer for a few days until the foaming subsides.
As a coral dip: Corals may be treated in small containers and then placed in the aquarium. Shake bottle well. Using dosing cap on bottle, add 20 ml (4 tsp) per ½ U.S. gallon of aquarium water. Make sure the water temperature, pH and salinity are correct. Place the coral in the water for 3-5 minutes. Corals should be "shaken" under water to help dislodge worms. After a maximum treatment time of 5 minutes, place the corals into the aquarium.
Fish disease is directly related to poor water quality and the buildup of waste in the aquarium. Many diseases breed in accumulated debris. To improve water quality, reduce waste promote a cleaner aquarium use API Stress Zyme.
SEACHEM Zeolite is a naturally occurring, highly-porous mineral that binds ammonia and heavy metals through an ion exchange mechanism. It has the highest ammonia binding capacity of any available zeolite; ten times higher than some products and twice the capacity of the closest competitor. It won't deplete calcium in the seawater, and it won't increase general hardness in freshwater, where the ionic strength is low.
For marine and freshwater
Vibrant Sea™ is a highly concentrated blend of salts formulated for marine and reef aquariums that contains all essential major, minor, and trace components found in natural seawaters, plus the added advantage of enhanced potassium levels. Its formulation is ideal for the reef environment and will provide accurate seawater concentrations of magnesium, calcium, and strontium with proper alkalinity and pH for closed reef aquarium systems.
Vibrant Sea™ is an anhydrous salt, which allows for unparalleled uniformity from batch to batch as well as the ability to produce more saltwater from less salt. In addition, it is highly soluble and can mixed and used in the same day.
Handle with care to prevent breakage.
