Hi I wrote yesterday with a Betta who is growing fibrous something (bacteria? fungus?) from his "chin". Betta Revive got rid of this stuff for him a couple of times, but now it's not working (it must have become resistant).

I read online about MelaFix - which is designed for Goldfish & Koi, but one person had success with their Betta. Has anyone used MelaFix? Have you had any success? Thanks!

I'd avoid it. Some betta experts claim anything containing melaleuca may be harmful to anabantoids.
