This medicine is amazing and very broad takes care of almost all fresh water diseases. The problem is its expensive then how many packets. I have a 100 gallon tank and it takes quit a bit ecspecially if you have to treat 2 times. other than that good stuff.

Pros: works quick

Cons: cost of medicine

Mardel is the best

posted 6 years ago

This product is great. I have used it off and on for at least 10 years. I have seen several packaging changes, and a change from tablets to powder. My favorite thing about the Mardel products is the cool disease diagnostic chart inside the box. I often use the guide when my fish are sick and keep one on hand at all times. It is easy to get one out of the box at the pet store without package damage if you need to. Recently, I had to treat a small beta bowl for mouth fungus. It was difficult to split the package up to treat less than 1/2 gallon! I expect a tablet would have been more difficult. My beta "Hector" is doing great now!

Pros: quickly dissolves

Cons: Water becomes mercky after a couple of days

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
