I have been treating my betta with aquarium salt, for his fin rot. It hasn't helped, and it has been getting worse and worse. should I do a 100% water change before treating him with the all-in-one remedy, or should I do 10% and then treat him?

Asked by: Meowwfromspace
Thank you for contacting us! We are sorry to hear your betta is sick. There are a number of things we would recommend. All fish disease has its beginning in poor water quality, one way or another. So we would recommend a 30% partial water change first. The salt is fine, and can be used with the medication. We would have recommended adding it to help reduce stress. You can also add your water conditioner, such as Marineland Water Conditioner, once a day to help the fins heal. And finally, make sure your betta is in a suitable environment of 2-5 gallons of heated water. The water temperature should be 80 degrees +/-2 degrees. Dose him once a day with both the medication and the water conditioner. Remove your carbon if you have a filter, but make sure he has aeration, one way or another. It will take several weeks after treatment for the fins to grow back. They will remain ragged, but should not continue to deteriorate, and the edges should be the same color and opacity as the rest of the fins. BREX

Greetings, I have bought the All-in-One Remedy and appreciate the answers you have given me so far. Before using it, however, I would like to ask if it would be OK to do 20% water changes daily before dosing with the All-in-One Remedy. Thank you.

Asked by: heathritch
Thank you for your interest in this product; we are glad to be of help! Yes, that would actually be a very good thing to do, in the interest of keeping the water quality up. However, you probably do not need to do more than 10%, after the first day, but 20% will be okay. BREX

Will the All-in-One Remedy still work if I only use 1/2 the dosage (for the recommended duration of treatment)?

Asked by: heathritch
We appreciate your contacting us! Yes, it should still help, although to what extent depends on how sick the fish are, and how healthy the overall tank is at the time of treatment. If it has not been getting regular water changes, for example, then the medication will not help as much. Fish illness is similar to ours in that if we are not eating and sleeping well, it takes us longer to get over an illness. For fish, if the tank is not well maintained, they will have a harder time recovering. Doing a half dose with this product should help, but you may need to treat for 5 days, then take a day off and do a water change, and start a second round of treatment on Day 7. BREX

Does it help with pop eye? My fish has a bloody like eye what do you recommend? will this work?

Asked by: Juanjuangotti
It depends on what is causing the popeye or bloody eye. Typically, if it is bloody, it is injured, and good water quality, plus salt may be all the fish needs. Partial water changes will help with the water quality. This medication will help with pop eye, but not so much if it is an injury. BREX

My fish had a blood shot like eye will this help with this? Will this kill anchor worms?

Asked by: Juanjuangotti
It may help with the eye, but not with anchor worm. Anchor worm is a tough parasite to eradicate. I would recommend a 30% water change, first. Add AquaSafe Plus and aquarium salt (2 tablespoons per 10 gallons of water for the salt amount). This should help with the eye. It will also remove some of the anchor worm larvae and eggs, and improve the overall water quality. Then I would treat with Parasite Guard to destroy the anchor worm. 3 doses, one every other day, then wait a week, and do one dose, wait another week, and do another dose. It is also recommended to perform a partial water change after the completion of each dose as well. If the eye still is not well after the initial round of dosing with the Parasite Guard, then do a treatment of Fungus Guard. BREX

Very sick betta Unsure of cause  Just finishing cycling the tank Ammonia now 0 - has been for a while Nitrites- .25-.5ppm Nitrates 10-20ppm Took out carbon in filter pouch Why does the box say not suitable for newly established aquariums 10 g tank

Asked by: Worried
Because it will harm the newly established biological filter. Your tank is in a delicate state right now. I would start with a 30% partial water change, AquaSafe Plus, SafeStart Plus and aquarium salt. Use 2 tablespoons of salt for the entire tank. If you do not have a heater, buy one. Bettas require temps between 76 and 84 degrees. These tips may help bring the betta back to good health. If not, then you will indeed need a medication. Without any symptoms to go by though, I'm not sure what I would recommend. BREX

Is it okay to use this product if my tank does not have a carbon filter? After five days I can change out the 25% of the water like the instructions say, but I don't have a filter to run in the tank. Is it okay for me to still use this product? Thanks!

Asked by: Mac2011
No, you have to have water movement to use any medication. Medications utilize a lot of oxygen, so with no filter or air, the fish is not going to do well, especially if it is already sick. BREX

Betta is definitely sick. Not sure exactly what's going on so we are using the all in one to help him out. He's in a small tank and has never been exposed to a filter. Can we filter a few times a day? Or does the filter have to be constantly running?

Asked by: Ninja820
A filter should be on 24/7. Use one at its lowest setting and place several plants or a large piece of décor in front of it to break up the flow and make it less stressful on him. He should be warm as well, since he needs a temperature of around 80 degrees, so make sure you have a heater for him. Many people do not buy heaters for bettas, and they do not do well for more than a year or so at room temperature. BREX

are cory catfish considered scale less fish? Should I remove them before using All in one remedy. Thank you Joe B

Asked by: joe b
I believe that they are; I do know that they can be very sensitive and it is best to remove them or preferably remove the sick fish to a quarantine tank and treat there instead of in the display tank. BREX

After treating my betta for five days consecutively he appears to be doing a little better but still far from completely healthy. Can I retreat him for another five days safely?

Asked by: Tbug
Yes, if you do a partial water change, run carbon for several hours, then remove it, and re-treat. However, if he is not substantially better, this may be the wrong medication for what ails him. Usually, if you have chosen a medication correctly, a fish should be substantially better, almost well, in 3-4 days. With bettas, make sure the tank has had a partial water change, and is warm. They do need heat - 78-84 degrees. To medicate, you also have to have a filter. BREX

Treating a betta with fin rot in a clean, filtered, somewhat high pH, 1 gallon tank. Temps a bit high. Getting worse. Purchased All In One and dissolved in 50 ml of cool water. Gave 10 ml tonight and will do so for 4 more doses. Remainder in fridge. OK?

Asked by: xljmx
Couple of things you should change - the medication does not need to be kept refrigerated. It just needs to be capped tightly and stored at room temperature. Secondly, if you dissolved medication in a 50 ml container, with the thought to just use that water each day, that will not work. The medication lasts 24 hours. You need to dose the tablet once a day, period. Just cut a tablet into 5 equal portions, and drop 1 portion into the tank, once a day. BREX

Is it safe to treat my large goldfish with the all in one tabs AND Pimafix? I believe it's infested with a fungus... red patches and red streaks in fins.

Asked by: Golden Bubbles
No, never mix meds. The description of the symptoms indicate a water quality issue with the tank and probably septicemia. He is going to need a lot more than what Pimafix can do. Start with a good vacuuming and a 30% water change. Add aquarium salt to the new water, let it dissolve, and add the water to the tank. Also, treat with All-In-One Remedy, following the instructions carefully. This is not an easy disease to eradicate. I would recommend treating for 5 days, with a small partial water change prior to each dose. Remove the carbon from the filter but keep it running. On day 6, do another water change, do not dose, add the carbon back and wait 24 hours, then take the carbon out and begin treatment again, for another 5 days. BREX

I want to know if it is ok to stop the treatment after 3 days, instead of 5? Will it still work  The fish are definitely looking better and I am concerned about the eel being in the tank. I need to get the dwarf frogs back in the tank  what should I do ? 

Asked by: Cjstarkey
If you see no spots at all, wait 24 hours, and see if any re-appear. If not, then discontinue treatment. Do a partial water change, and put fresh carbon back into the filter to remove the medication from the water. After running the new carbon for 24 hours, you can put your frogs back into the tank.

Hi I have a goldfish that is very sick. Laying at bottom of tank won't eat and looks to have redness in the girls. The girl at the pet store gave me this product and I'm seeing it might be better to put him on ? Guard??? After reading some q&a I

Asked by: Andrews
The first thing to do is a partial water change. When you mix up his new water, add Aquasafe Plus and aquarium salt. The salt should be at a ratio of 2 tablespoons per 10 gallons of water. I suspect this product, Lifeguard, will help, but Parasite Guard would be stronger and faster. BREX

Should I have the filter on when adding the medicine, my fish had an ulcer and his fins were red, everything got heal but his tail is still red strike, and his but always rises up. I used this medicine for 5 days as recommended. HELP

Asked by: MelisaLP
The filter should be on, yes, but the carbon cartridge should be out during treatment. Do a 30% partial water change, refill the tank, run the carbon cartridge for a few hours, and then pull it back out. Re-treat for another 5 days. It sounds like it is working, but he isn't 100% yet. Water quality is key to getting this guy healthy. You may also want to add some aquarium salt - 2 tablespoons per 10 gallons of water. BREX

If it has improved, then yes, continue with this medication. On day 6, do a partial water change, run carbon in the filter for 24 hours, then pull it out, and start a second round of treatment. If it has NOT improved, then I would recommend doing a partial water change and switching to Fungus Guard. BREX

Will this product cure Columnaris (Saddleback Disease)? I have a mickey mouse platy that has saddleback disease. I also have a Gourami that has clamped fin who is not eating well and breathing from top of tank. Trying T.C. Tetracycline now.

Asked by: Bryana
Both diseases are typically caused by poor water quality - lack of minerals for one, and stress. I would recommend the following: water change with a good vacuuming of the gravel, and replacement of 20% of the water, the addition of aquarium salt to help with any lack of minerals in the water, at a rate of 1-2 tablespoons per 10 gallons of water, the removal of stress factors such as over crowding or a bully fish, and the use of Fungus Guard. While Columnaris is not a fungus, a very reputable breeder has seen the most success using Nitrofurazone in curing columnaris, and it will definitely eliminate the clamped fins, which coincidentally, are also caused by a lack of minerals in the water in many cases. So....water change....addition of salt....and Fungus Guard. The All - In - One Remedy would be good for the clamped fins but not as effective on the Columnaris. BREX

Yes, but I would start with vacuuming the gravel, and removing/replacing 25% of the water first, and testing your water quality. Make sure the water quality is good first, as low pH, high ammonia, etc, can cause this issue too. Then treat with the All-In-One-Remedy. BREX
