So Whenever I give my fish their medicine

So one of my platys has fin rot, and I went to the store and bought some Melafix. It is measured by the teaspoon, so now whenever I go to put the medicine in the tank I start singing, "A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down." I have to put in another dose in a minute. :P

Just make sure that you take out the carbon or else the medicine will be useless, and follow the instructions closely!!! Good luck on getting the fishies better!!!

In the most delightful way...... LOL

Good luck with your platy. I hope he/she recovers well. Constant partial water changes before re-dosing meds is going to help a lot.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Thanks, everyone! Bob is recovering nicely. She should be ready to go back into the main tank by next Monday. :)
