does this really work? does it really heal the fins if they have been nipped on? i have two maroon clowns that the big clown bullies the small one. now i just realized the small one has his fins shredded. i want to heal him and maybe just trade him back in to the LFS

Melafix is a very light remedy imo, I prefer Nitrofurazone for bacterial infections or prevention of. That is how pairings of clowns go, trial and error

Be it by design or happenstance, I've had good luck when I used it.

I also have had good results with it but they have been mild cases. For rough cases I would defer to James treatment plan.
