New remedy against Ichthyo parasites (including those previously resistant) • Effective not only against all parasites causing white spot disease but against all other ciliates (ectoparasites). • With new combination of active ingredients. • Does not contain copper. • Suitable for some invertebrates. • Effect is enhanced by a half dose of JBL Ektol cristal, to detach the parasites from the fish. Instructions for use Medication for aquarium fish to counteract single-celled skin parasites. In freshwater these include: Ichthyophthirius, Ichthyobodo (Costia), Heteropolaria, Chilodonella, Tetrahymena, Trichodina, Glossatella. In saltwater: Cryptocarion, Brooklynella, Uronema. Grainy white dots on the skin, fins and gills of the fish are characteristic for the spot disease caused by Ichthyophthirius in freshwater fish. In saltwater this disease is caused by Cryptocarion. The spots are smaller and more difficult to identify than in freshwater. The preparation is also highly effective against the “stubborn“ strains of Ichthyophthirius which are very common. This reliably prevents or stops the wholesale death of fish which frequently occurs. Velvety, thin, blue-white skin coatings on freshwater fish indicate infection with the bean-shaped skin blemisher Costia (Ichthyobodo). A carpet-like white coating in the area of the mouth, in gourami often occurring after injury or other pre-infection, is caused by the bell animalcule Heteropolaria colisarum. The following unspecific symptoms can also be observed in the case of infection with the parasites mentioned above and others: rapid breathing, rubbing on objects, sticky fins, refusal to feed, reduced movement, apathy, dark colouring, increased production of slime.
Contra-indications: none known.
Caution: Long-term damage may occur to corals and other invertebrates in saltwater. Fish should therefore be treated separately in a quarantine tank. Intolerance may be shown by invertebrates in freshwater (shrimp, crustacean etc.). They should be excluded from treatment.
