well this owners fish had reacquiring mouth rot,fungus and fin rot.that's why i didn't recommend using it. as you said it works for cuts and bruises which are minor injuries. for melafix to really work on more serious problems like reacquiring or prolonged fungus issues, it had to be medicated along side other products to really heal the fish. i have read journals from both owners and people who test the efficiency of these products and both what they said and what happened to me was the same.minor injuries yes.major problem a big no no...
