API® MelaFix Antibacterial Remedy is an all-natural medication derived from the leaves of "Melaleuca", the scientific name for the Tea Tree. MelaFix has powerful antibacterial properties that treat the wound and promote rapid tissue healing. Healing and tissue regeneration in koi and goldfish can usually be seen in the first four days of treatment.

Disease-causing organisms are present in all ponds. Any time a physical abrasion damages fish tissue, bacterial and fungal pathogens seize the opportunity to infect the fish. Shipping, netting, and poor water quality also weaken the fish's immune system, permitting disease problems to occur. Skin and fin abrasions are an unavoidable part of fish keeping. Therefore the potential for disease problems occur with every new fish arrival, whether it is at the hatchery, fish wholesaler, pond shop, or in the pond.

External bacterial infections cause a variety of symptoms including split and ragged fins. The fish's eyes may become coated with a whitish slime or protrude from the head. Bacterial infections cause hazy, slimy patches to develop on the body. These patches may develop into red ulcers. "Mouth Fungus" caused by Flavobacterium (formerly Flexibacter), causes mouth tissue to deteriorate. MelaFix heals the wound and restores damaged tissue.
