Here is what the Good doctors Smith and Foster have to say, "MelaFix Marine can also be used with corals to control bacterial infections, reverse coral degradation and remove parasitic flatworms"
The thing that bothers me is that it kills bacteria so it might mean removing the corals and using it as a dip outside of the AQ. I would not use it in the DT.

I definitely would not use it in the display tank. Anti bacterial means just that. Anti bacterial of your good bacteria also. For QT use only IMO.
