Anyone tried "Artemiss"

Artemiss microbe lift...? It sounds like melafix (not melaleuca, the ingredients aren't listed.) I somehow managed to let the idiot fish clerk talk me into buying a tiny bottle for $9. I''m not even sure its betta safe, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't I'm probably going to be returning it, but just curious if anyone here has used it. All natural remedies that cost $9 rarely work. :) But the clerk said they use it for all their ailing fish (a cure-all? Another bad sign.)

I tried it and my fish's behavior changed drastically (went from being a total braveheart to the cowardly lion overnight. He jumped and hit the lid trying to get away from me when usually you can't get him to leave me alone when I'm anywhere near or in the tank!) So I put carbon in to remove the stuff and he's acting normal again (still not quite the same :( ) I can't prove that it was the artemiss, but I wont be using it again and its a strange coincidence.

I notice the product says to remove any carbon or zeolite from the filter before adding as "it will remove the expellants." Whatever that means. Weird that your fish should react to it in such a way. I've never used it or any medications as I haven't had the need (knock on wood) but I'll be sure to steer clear of the stuff.

Here's the product page link
