Melefix will not cure popeye. Popeye is almost exclusively a resultank of poor water conditions. The first step is to.solve that or medications will not do your any good.

My medication of choice for popeye is Seachem Kanaplex.

:welcome: melifix does not cure anything it is a preventive only, once there is an infection it will not cure it.
