Fish Disease & PimaFix
Drs. Foster & Smith Educational Staff

Any time fish tissue is damaged due to shipping, netting, handling, or poor water quality, bacterial and fungal pathogens seize the opportunity to infect the fish. Bacterial infections weaken fish and enable fungal infection to spread more rapidly. Fungal infections are seen as white cottony patches on the fish's body and fins.

A new product on the market is giving aquarists a new weapon in the defense against deadly fish infections. From the soothing climate of the West Indies comes beneficial Pimenta racemosa (West Indian Bay Tree) oil. PimaFix contains this unique oil, tested true as an antibacterial and antifungal remedy for marine and freshwater fish. The compounds in PimaFix work naturally and harmoniously to attack diseases quickly - without affecting pH or harming aquatic plants. It also works on bacteria strains that are resistant to traditional medications.

PimaFix is a sister product to MelaFix, which has been a favorite standby for protecting fish against red ulcer, fin and tail rot, cloudy eyes, mouth fungus - and more. When dealing with stubborn infections, we recommend using PimaFix in conjunction with MelaFix. Together, they provide the added benefit of quick tissue regeneration and healing.
