Diy Melafix & Pimafix

Recommended Posts

Not my recipe but feel free to share if you want.

If you guys want to save some money on melafix and pimafix you can make it at home yourself.

Melafix 1ml pure tea tree oil 125ml distilled water or tank water. mix like crazy and dose @ 5ml per 40L

Pimafix 1ml west indian bay oil (pimenta racemosa)125ml distilled water or tank watermix like crazy and dose @ 5ml per 40L

Also add ploys ornate 80. But just use the same measurement of polysorbate 80 as the total amount of oils.

Not so sure about actual damage, but I've read around the traps that the oil can coat the organ making oxygen transfer difficult - and for that reason, I don't use it either.

I found Pimafix not as bad as melafix for bettas. But still good to have a DIY alternative for the other fish we keep.
