  • Question: Pimafix?

    Anyone ever use Pimafix to treat fin rot/fungus?

    Looks like I have secondary infection now....I just want this to stop already.

    I've used MelaFix for fin rot. Keep a close watch on your fish. They've been very stressed and you may need to hit it with antibiotics or giving them a hydrogen peroxide bath.

      Is Melafix safe for bottom dwellers and inverterbrates?

        I have used primafix before. Worked pretty well. Made the top a bit foamy though.

          I may worry about inverts and otos but everything else should be okay with the pirmafix... I have never used it though so I can't help with it to much ..

              I used Pimafix on a tank that had a couple fish showing a fungus of some kind. Did a great job clearing tihngs up.

                    Melafix and Pimafix are both homeopathic remedies...

                      From what I have researched corys and kuli's should be fine CJ the only no no's with the fix's are labyrinth fish but as corys gulp from the surface but mainly breath in the water they will be fine

                          I think it causes a mucus build up in labyrinth fish lungs which is not good at all... (but I could be wrong I am still learning about medicines to use)

                            I thought because it creates an oily build up on the surface and the labyrinth fish gulps the surface and goes in their gills.
