The MelaFix should be fine. I would use the MelaFix now before an infection sets in. It has Aloe Vera so it is good for the fish and it's so mild to use. Just follow the intructions as follows. I use Stress Coat everytime I get new fish or I fish them out in a net as this coats their fins and netting the fish for any reason can put stress on the fish. You should see results really quick with the MelaFix. Your doing all the right things to get your Platy better.

MelaFix is suppose to help with the healing of what ever injury your Platy had. If you do not have Stress Coat use the MelaFix to repair any damage that your Platy had while being stuck. Stop the treatment once you notice that the fish is getting better.

The clean water seems to be doing the trick. The wound is starting to heal a little bit every day!

That's nice to hear! Clean water is the secret! In this case meds are only preventive measures against infection.

Thankyou guys for all the help. I really appreciate it, and I'm sure he does too.

I think I'll plan on putting him back in j pop when the wound looks covered. It's about halfway there, white center with light orange edges.
