    I have a 10 gallon tank. I have a fungal infection in the aquarium. All Moly fry have died, the mother is very distressed and my 3 tetra have now caught the sickness. Last night I bought API Pimafix and API Stress Coat+ for the Aloe Vera that is in there. I am extremely concerned about the fish and I worry so much about them. I dosed it yesterday with Pinafix & Stresscoat+ and also this morning..
    Is the Pimafix and Stress Coat+ enough from them? And also the Pimafix said to dose 5ml for 7 days and then do a 25% WC, do I still do my regular WC's for ammonia if necessary or would doing a WC before the 7 days mess up the treatment cycle? Any help will be extremely appreciated.

    I'm not much help in freshwater but my wife uses melafix in her cichlid tank when they get rowdy and take chunks from eachother and it works well, really well. Sorry I couldn't be much help. Being that you already dosed the tank I would hold off in adding anything else. Doing water changes I belive might help as well.

    Thank you :) It says you can use Pimafix & Melafix together. But I'm going to see how the Pimafix treats my fish and if it isn't improving, I'll try something else.
