Melafix is fine but if you don't see signs of fungus or other infection I wouldn't bother.

Just stay on top of the water quality to minimise the risk of infection. So more frequent changes will help.

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.
