INDICATIONS & USAGE
WHY USE MELAFIX?
Quickly heals bacterial infections on Koi and goldfish
Promotes re-growth of damaged fins and tissue
Reduces risk of disease spread when introducing new fish
Made from a botanical extract
MELAFIX uses the antibacterial properties of Tea Tree (Melaleuca) to treat bacterial infections in pond fish, including ulcers, open wounds, and fin and tail rot. Healing and tissue re-growth can often be seen within 4 days of treatment. Will not harm the biological filter. Safe for snails, aquatic plants and other wildlife. MELAFIX is also recommended when adding new fish to a pond to reduce the risk of disease outbreak.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION
Shake well. Remove carbon from pond filter and turn off UV lights and ozone-producing units, if applicable. Use the dosing cap on the bottle. Add 15 ml (1 Tbsp.) for every 150 U.S. gallons (567 L) of pond water or 1/4 cup (60 ml) for every 600 U.S. gallons (2, 270 L) of pond water.
As a preventative when introducing new fish to the pond: Dose daily for 3 days.
To treat infections or heal wounds: Dose daily for 7 days. Double the dose when treating advanced or chronic infection. Repeat treatment, if necessary.
