Melafix...?

I'm a little concerned. Is Melafix really betta poison?

It's not poison.

It isn't recommended for bettas because there is an ingredient that is easy to overdose them on and it can be quite harmful once it reaches that level.

Most of the things it treats can be treated with aquarium or epsom salt anyway, so there's really no need to subject your betta to the risk.
