This is likely why I have never had much luck when I tried this stuff in the past.
Good to see a little third party confirmationIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

It would be interesting to see what pathogens they tested it against, but that requires $$$$ to see the full study.

I've always thought of Melafix and Pimafix as 'nature' treatments that may or may not work and have never counted on them for much. Good to know I was in the right ball park

I've always had my doubts with melafix as well. In real life, I've never really heard anything positive (fish related) about it. I wonder if it's the dilution making the tea tree oil to weak to do any good. I know in real life I am allergic to everything and when I stick my hands into something I shouldn't I have used tea tree oil to help with irritations and it works. Anyway this thread reminded me of Willafix lol http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...light=willafixWhen I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top...

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
