Answer by ChewyJul 18, 2017
This product prevents bacteria growth in wounds and will treat topical bacterial infections on the body and limbs of aquatic turtles.

it says to use daily. how much ml do i need to add daily to a 55g tank?
Answer by ChewyFeb 15, 2018
Use the dosing cap on bottle. Remove activated carbon from filter, if possible. Dose: Add 1ml per 2 US gallons or add 5 ml (1tsp) per 10 US gallons of water. Dose daily for 7 days, perform a 25% water change. Treatment can be continued if necessary. A slight foaming may occur during treatment.

can I put this in while I have feeding fish in?
Answer by ChewySep 24, 2018
This treatment is safe to use with other fish inside the aquarium.

Do I have to remove the carbon from my filter to apply API Turtle Fix?
Answer by ChewyOct 03, 2021
When using this treatment, remove the carbon filter, dose the medication, and then replace the filter 24 hours after the last dose of medication.

Really works

My red eared slider had cotton wool disease of the head and neck. I started using this water treatment according to the directions. It took about two weeks for him to heal. He feels so much better. This medication is amazing. Thank you Chewy!

Heals Turtles fast

I have 3 RES and they scratch each other sometimes, better safe than sorry. They get very excited and climb on top of each other.

Highly recommend

Highly recommend for aquatic turtles with shell rot! Or just to keep healthy every now and then. I only gave 2 stars cause the bottle wasn't sealed ,no tape or secure packing on bottle so it leaked all over everything I ordered!
