Purpose And Benefits:
Disease-causing organisms are present in all ponds. Any time a physical abrasion damages fish tissue, bacterial and fungal pathogens seize the opportunity to infect the fish. Shipping, netting, and poor water quality also weaken the fish's immune system, permitting disease problems to occur. Skin and fin abrasions are an unavoidable part of fish keeping. Therefore the potential for disease problems occur with every new fish arrival, whether it is at the hatchery, fish wholesaler, pond shop, or in the pond.
External bacterial infections cause a variety of symptoms including split and ragged fins. In extreme cases the fins erode back to the body. Melafix promotes regrowth of damaged fin rays and tissue. In test cases where fish had lost all tail and dorsal fins, Melafix completely restored both fins to their original condition. The fish's eyes may become coated with a whitish slime or protrude from the head. Bacterial infections cause hazy, slimy patches to develop on the body. These patches may develop into red ulcers. "Mouth Fungus" caused by Flavobacterium (formerly Flexibacter), causes mouth tissue to deteriorate. Melafix heals the wound and restores damaged tissue.
Directions For Use:
For recent wounds, fin damage, and infection: add one teaspoonful (5 ml) of Melafix for every 50 U.S. gallons (190 L) or ¼ cupful (60 ml) for every 600 U.S. gallons (2,280 L) of pond water. Repeat dose daily for seven days. Treatment may be continued if necessary.
When treating an advanced or chronic infection: add two teaspoonful (10 ml) of Melafix for every 50 U.S. gallons (190 L) or ¼ cupful (60 ml) for every 300 U.S. gallons (1,1400 L) of pond water. Repeat dose daily for seven days. Treatment may be continued if necessary.
When adding new fish to the pond, or when netting and handling fish: add one teaspoonful (5 ml) of Melafix for every 50 U.S. gallons (190 L) or ¼ cupful (60 ml) for every 600 U.S. gallons (2,280 L) of pond water.
