How do I diagnose a health problem in my fish?
Many disease symptoms will be clearly visible, such as white streaks, lesions, protruding eyes, and other unusual marks or spots on your fish. If you suspect your fish has a disease, it will fall under the categories of fungal, parasitic, or bacterial. One way to diagnose is by matching fish symptoms to the description of a wide range of API medications, which include treatments specific to Ich disease, Betta fish, and various common symptoms (hole-in-the-head, eye cloud, fin & tail rot, etc.)
Does API BETTAFIX treat popeye?
This medication is perfect for wounds, ulcers, mouth fungus, and fin & tail rot, but will not treat popeye. For popeye treatment, API MELAFIX is recommended.
Will API BETTAFIX affect the snails in my tank?
This medication is designed for use with tropical fish only, and may cause harm to your snails.
How much API BETTAFIX should I use in a 3 gallon aquarium?
Instructions state to add 9 drops per pint, or 18 drops per quart, of aquarium water. For larger bowls or aquariums, add ½ teaspoon per U.S. gallon of water. Repeat dose daily for up to 7 days, and then perform a water change.
