So you are saying if they drink the water with the all natural melafix in it- it could drown them?:(

They will naturally take it in along with everything else in the water. It could coat the organ that allows them to breathe air and that could cause them to suffocate.

The company has come out with something called Bettafix which is a highly diluted form of Melafix. Some people use Bettafix without issues, but I don't feel the risks outweigh any potential gains.
