Two of my koi's are at the bottom of the tank.

Two of my large koi's are sitting at the bottom of the tank. I noticed this lethargic and sad behavior for a few days. Even though they are still eating they bob up and down and then settle on the rocks breathing heavily.(They have no signs of Ick,tail rot,open wounds) Reading up online they could possibly have a bacterial disease along with swim bladder infection. So, I decided to take a chance and buy this product. I am very happy to say that after the 2nd treatment they were swimming and now the 4th day completely back to normal. -- 25% water changes 1st & 4th day and put them on a green pea diet. This is a bit pricy but, worth every penny to save their lives!

I used this medication for my sick platy and it has been a miracle product for her. I had no hope for her and was positive that she would not make it. She had fin and tail rot disease and probably some other infections, but she has made a great recovery. I am now using it in my 55 gallon tank and I hope it produces the same results. If you use this, I would think about using Melafix with it also.
Pros: heals fish very quickly.
Cons: turns water brown, makes lots of bubbles at surface of water
