Repeat dose after 48 hours. Wait another 48 hours then change 25% of the aquarium water and add API BIO-CHEM ZORB, fresh activated carbon or replace filter cartridge. Caution: Some scaleless fish are sensitive to this medication; therefore, treat at half the normal dose.
Indications & Usage
Ich: Ich is a protozoan parasite capable of infecting all aquarium fish. The disease is highly contagious and will spread to all fish in the aquarium. In early stages of infection, no white spots are seen, but symptoms may include darting in the aquarium and scratching against the gravel and ornaments. Labored breathing and lingering at the water's surface may also be observed.
Quarantine aquarium. Remove any dead fish immediately. Do not remove or add any live fish to the infected aquarium. Ich parasites can be spread to other aquariums by nets, algae scrapers and wet hands.
The lifecycle of the Ich parasite speeds up as the water temperature rises. So raising the water temperature to 82 F (28 C) may improve results.
To aid osmoregulation and ease stress of infected fish in freshwater aquariums, add 1 tablespoon of API AQUARIUM SALT for each 5 gallons (19 L) of aquarium water, or 1-1/4 cup for each 100 gallons (378 L).
