You can use pretty much any clean plastic bin. Make sure there were never any soaps or cleaning products in the container. You can go to the store and get a brand new one for under $5. Just rinse with water first.Litfish said:I would prefer not to separate as I don't have another tank ready. Does anyone here have any advice on spur of the moment hospital tank setup?
I believe Melafix is safe, but I don’t believe it will be super effective since it’s not an anti fungal. Am I right in the fact that most antibiotics and anti fungal treatments are not available in Canada?FishBeginner2020 said:There is Melafix. I used it along with pimafix to treat finrot before and it worked well. Have no idea if it is safe for scaleless fish though or if it would be good in this case so you may have to do some research. It's available at Petsmart, probably Big Al's or I'm sure you could find it on Amazon.
Not sure about melafix but I did find this on seachem site:Litfish said:Would poly guard be safe for scaleless fish? Should i try to dose melafix as well?
