It works and it's worth it! by Tay from Boston, MA04/25/2012
I was searching around the internet for a while, looking for a product of Metronidazole that did not cost 40$. I only needed a small amount for my betta fish and these other products were for ten gallon tanks! So I searched around and found this site. The product is appropriately priced and works perfectly. My fish is alive and healthy thanks to this product. And if it ever happens again I have plenty to treat her with!
