Hard to portion for use in a bowl. Also, directions do not advise on water changes so you kind of have to wing it
Cons: hard to use

I recently purchased a betta fish from another pet store who had a massive internal bacterial infection. The infection was causing him to become incredibly lethargic, and it also impaired his swim bladder, so that he couldn't stay upright. He wasn't eating either. He went downhill FAST, and I honestly didn't think he would make it. I dosed his tank with both Maracyn and Maracyn Two, and within a day he'd regained control over his swim bladder. By the third day, he was eating again. At the end of the treatment, he was better than I had ever seen him, and he's now good as new.
This product is quite easy to administer, though you need to do some math if your tank is smaller than ten gallons. It works like a charm, and I'll definitely buy it again to have on hand. I highly recommend this product!
Pros: works great, easy to use

I used this as directed along with the marycn 2 and
it worked. My betta was very sick and I thought he would die. Now he is completely health. I would totally recommend this.
Pros: works great

I bought this because the Guppies I bought a few days before developed fin rot (And turned out to have MANY other problems)
Anyways the instructions were very easy to understand and the information booklet that came with it were SO helpful! They come with a diagnose it yourself pamphlet that can help diagnose the problem with your fish and then suggest their product that would help cure the fish.
The medication didn't work on my Guppies, but it did work on my Panda Cory's (Which contracted one of the other illnesses my Guppies had.)
Pros: easy to administer
Cons: didn't work
