Do I have to buy a new brand of the same kind of medicine?

Fishowner24

I have a question so if I have for example melafix a antibacterial medicine and someone recommends I use mardel maracyn which also is antibacterial do I have to buy the mardel maracyn or will the melafix work the same because they treat the same things? Thanks!

Melafix is pretty mush essential oil in water. Pretty much useless unless you are just treating a scrape. More like a antiseptic. Is there a reason you need a antibacterial? Also dont use any fixes on Betta fish.

Ok thanks! How do I know what medicine to use for what illness because there is a bunch of different antibacterial and antifungal and all sorts of kinds? Thanks!

I dont know about all that stuff myself. I personally would keep the water super clean and try the Melafix. Then I would just hope for the best, but thats just me. Is the fish eating and doing normal things?

Im just not big on treating the whole tank for one fish. Keeping the water clean is going to be your best bet Im thinking. As long as it is not getting worse and the fish is normal.

Do you think it is a fungus or like just some weird growth of some sort? Thanks!
