Patented formula derived from Pimenta racemosa (West Indian Bay Tree), rapidly treats aquarium fish fungal infections. API PIMAFIX harnesses the unique antifungal and antibacterial properties of the West Indian Bay Tree for a safe and natural remedy. Quickly treats fungus or cottony growth, mouth and body fungus and reddening of the fins and body as well as internal and external bacterial infections. Broad-spectrum treatment prevents the development of resistant strains of disease-causing organisms.

Safe and effective API PIMAFIX will not discolor water, affect biological filter, or pH during treatment. Will not harm live aquarium plants. Safe for use in freshwater or saltwater aquariums including reef aquariums. 8 oz treats 474 gallons.

Use with API MELAFIX to synergistically treat a broad range of infections. PIMAFIX can be used with all API products, including medications and water conditioners. Laboratory studies proved that PIMAFIX is safe for even the most delicate fish species, including tetras, discus fry and scale-less fish like Clown Loaches. PIMAFIX has been tested and found to be safe in reef aquariums containing invertebrates such as live coral and anemones. Treating with PIMAFIX will not harm the biological filter in freshwater or saltwater aquariums or ponds. PIMAFIX is harmless to live aquarium plants.

API recommends turning off the protein skimmer and UV sterilizer when treating with PIMAFIX. In saltwater aquariums with no filter, a slight haze may form. Make a 25% water change, if necessary.
