yep.....actually , Mela Fix and Pima Fix are good for all species of fish...
it is important that all medications be administered properly.even if the label says that overdosing won't hurt ; it is still not a good idea..and as with all medications , i am a firm believer in increasing aeration and even filtration..that keeps oxygen circulating and reduces co2 levels..
