I use this product as needed for fin and tail rot on my guppies. Within a few days I can see the difference in the fish's behavior and fins. Just wish I could buy more than 10 packets at a time without special ordering. Only thing I don't like is the price.
Pros: works great

This product is for GRAM NEGATIVE BACTERIAL INFECTION treatment. PLEASE do your research and try your best to determine what your fish actually has before giving things a bad review.
This product treats bacterial infections like fin and tail rot. It may also cloud or turn the color of your water, despite what the box tells you. Also make sure to remove any carbon filter pads from your filter housing, as it will suck up the medication before it can do its job.
Ich is a PARASITE and needs parasite medication! Of course this product didn't cure Ich, because that's not what it's made for. You wouldn't take pain killers for a decongestant, would you? No. Read the box, or better yet, ASK FOR HELP if you don't know what you're doing.

I have a 15 gallon tank with 4 fish and 3 shrimps. The two tetras were developing some sort of mouth fungus and ich. I decided to buy this product, given it claims to treat both these diseases. It comes with 10 packets (1 packet per 10 gallon). I put in 1 and 1/2 packets (as per direction), in my tank every day & took out the activated carbon filter. While it reduced the mouth fungus a little, it did not cure ich. Even mouth fungus was not fully removed after 5 days of treating (5th day being single packet). The recommended cure was for 4 days, which was clearly not sufficient in my case. I would recommend a stronger medication.
Pros: easy to use
Cons: didn't work

Been using this for years with my Angel and Discus tanks. Can also be used with Quick Cure or Rid Ich which is a great asset if your are fighting ich also. I was delighted to see this product still on the market at least. Does not change my water appearance at all and the fish have no problems. Loaches and cories don't seem to mind it either.
Pros: works great
Cons: price

Within an hour of adding this product to my tank, my water had turned almost black. It took three days, and several water changes, before I could see my fish again, and three weeks before the tank was back to normal. The product says it will not color your tanks water. API was not very helpful either.
Cons: didn't work, price
