If it were me, I would get both Bettafix *and* Pimafix and follow the instructions for both medications on the bottles.

Melafix and Bettafix are the same exact product, but Bettafix is a weaker concentration because the fish are more sensitive to it. You could try getting Melafix and diluting it yourself, though.

well guess what i ended up with this crappy simply betta stuff my mom insisted that we talk to the pet store lady and we ended up with this useless crap. I was going to get Pimafix and Melafix but no apperently betta fish die from it being to strong. I am so fet up now!!! But my mom got my a snail to put with my betta fish and the snail is pretty cool.

I have not had any luck with melafix, but I know some people have. Fungus Clear by Jungle Labs has worked every time for me.

I believe the dilution of Melafix is 1/5 to make it the same strength as BettaFix. Use it at 1/5 of the instructions for a betta.

I used Bettafix and even though it didnt repair the damage done to the fins, it stopped it from progressing further, he got happier, more active and is making his little bubbles at the top of the cage again.
