About this deal

Products that are designed to remove things from your aquarium, such as filter media, will also remove dosed fish remedy from your tank. For best results from fish remedy, remove your filtration media as you dose. API POND STRESS COAT water conditioner removes chlorine and neutralizes chloramines and heavy metals. It also reduces stress in pond fish, and promotes the healing of wounds and regeneration of damaged tissue with Aloe Vera. Cotton-like growths in fish are caused by fungi, usually around open wounds or damaged scales and spread to the rest of the body. However, they may also affect the healthy fish living in unclean water saturated with waste and other decaying organic compounds. API® POND PIMAFIX fish remedy contains an all-natural formula that rapidly treats fungal infections on the body and fins of your pond fish, in addition to treating internal and external bacterial infections. This product can be used in combination with POND MELAFIX™ fish remedy to enhance effectiveness against certain fish diseases.

It also acts as a very good preventative measure when a fish has a wound or scratch. Can I use Melafix with other treatments?In an overcrowded tank, the competition for food is often fierce. Shy species might starve, while feistier fish will fight to get to the food first. General hardness is the measure of calcium and magnesium ion concentrations dissolved in water. These minerals are present in municipal, well, and bottled spring water. The level of general hardness in tap and bottled water depends on the source of the water and the treatment processes it has undergone. Hard water is high in calcium and magnesium, while soft water is low in these minerals. No, API STRESS COAT water conditioner does not affect the biological filter (natural aquarium cycle) or your water’s pH levels. Melafix can be used in saltwater aquariums and freshwater aquariums without issue as an all-natural antibacterial treatment. It will not hurt your aquarium plants, although it does have a somewhat medicated unpleasant odor. It will also cause a foam on top of the water if you have a bubbler/airstone as it creates a thin layer over the surface of the water which air gets trapped inside.

Some infected fish develop skin ulcers; others present with the condition’s signature swollen belly, whereas some have very few or no symptoms at all. Generally, however, the noticeable signs of dropsy appear as it progresses in all cases.Melafix should not be mixed with ich treatments and will require several large water changes and at least 7 days after the ichs’ last medication dose before it’s safe to use melafix again in the tank. Both Melafix and Pimafix, when used in the proper doses, are considered safe for use in aquariums with snails, bettas, shrimps, plants, and beneficial bacteria. However, they contain certain chemicals that aren’t safe for humans. So, don’t use them to treat fish meant for human consumption. Can Melafix And Pimafix Be Used Together? Is the effectiveness of API CO2 BOOSTER™ product diminished by aeration and/or water circulation like CO2 gas?

Carbonate hardness, also known as “alkalinity” and “KH,” is the level of bicarbonate and carbonate ions in water. The KH level is also a measurement of water’s ability to resist pH change. API PROPER pH 8.2 contains bicarbonate and carbonate buffers, and will directly increase carbonate hardness. API PROPER pH 6.5, 7.0, and 7.5 contain no carbonate hardness, but will cause a spike in KH as measured with KH test kits. These kits work by acidifying the water in the test tube, drop by drop, with a test reagent. When the water sample is adequately acidified, a color change occurs in the test tube. This is called the “end point.” The number of drops of test reagent required to acidify the sample (causing a color change) indicates the level of KH. Phosphate buffers strongly resist pH change, and will be measured just like bicarbonate and carbonate buffers. Therefore, API PROPER pH 6.5, 7.0, and 7.5, will cause an increase in KH measurements. Many disease symptoms will be clearly visible, such as white streaks, lesions, protruding eyes, and other unusual marks or spots on your fish. If you suspect your fish has a disease, it will fall under the categories of fungal, parasitic, or bacterial. One way to diagnose is by matching fish symptoms to the description of a wide range of API fish remedies, which include treatments specific to Ich disease, Betta fish, and various common symptoms (hole-in-the-head, eye cloud, fin & tail rot, etc.)

How to use Melafix and Pimafix simultaneously

High nitrate is harmful to fish, but is significantly less toxic than ammonia or nitrite. Effects of high nitrate levels are more gradual if parameters go untreated – fish will eventually lose their appetite and grow sluggish and inactive over time. High nitrate also contributes to rapid algae blooms in aquariums. Many disease symptoms will be clearly visible, such as white streaks, lesions, protruding eyes, and other unusual marks or spots on your fish.

One way to diagnose is by matching fish symptoms to the description of a wide range of API fish remedies, which include treatments specific to Ich disease, Betta fish, and various common symptoms (hole-in-the-head, eye cloud, fin & tail rot, etc.). There isn’t much to watch for if you are using these safe products other than the standard things. Some of the melafix overdose symptoms include:

API NITRA-ZORB filtration media should not fully replace other media; it is for temporary use only. Meanwhile, keep the fish in your main tank under observation. Any listless fish and those with a poor appetite should be transferred to the hospital tank for treatment as a precaution. Aquarium ManagementBoth of these kits may be used in marine aquariums; however, the API SALTWATER MASTER TEST KIT will allow you to test for ammonia, high range pH, nitrite, and nitrate in your tank, while API REEF MASTER TEST KIT tests for calcium, carbonate hardness, phosphate, and nitrate – all of which need to be maintained at appropriate levels for a thriving reef aquarium. Should API POND ALGAEFIX™ algae control and ECOFIX™ bacterial cleaner be used at the same time, or should the sludge remover be added after all the API ALGAEFIX algae control are completed?
