MelaFix Question

Anyone use MelaFix? I added a very small amount and now I have excessive minute air bubbles in my tank from my Protein Skimmer. This is not harming the fish, I was just wondering how long it takes before this goes back to normal. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have used melafix with success, but I would not turn on the protein skimmer unless the treatment is finished. The bubbles are caused by the melafix and should return to normal in a few days

This is a good time for a decent water change also...

It depends a lot on what you are using Melafix for. It doesn't help for very many things.

Cheers,
