Microbe-Lift Ich-Out For Pond Fish is the safest and most effective treatment for “ich” and many other protozoan-caused diseases in pond fish (e.g. the diseases caused by Ichthyophthirius, Cryptocaryon, Costia, Chilodonella, Oodinium and Amyloodinium). Microbe-Lift/Ich-Out is also an effective treatment of fungal infections in pond fish.
When used as directed, Microbe-Lift/ Ich-Out will not harm biological filtration. As with all treatments, the prompt use of Microbe-Lift/Ich-Out will help insure a complete recovery of the diseased fish.
Microbe-Lift Ich-Out For Pond Fish is a powerful treatment and may not be tolerated by fish that are heavily traumatized by their disease.
Observation of the diseased fish before and during treatment is required so that appropriate water changes and retreatments may be done as necessary.
Water, Formaldehyde (<5%) and Methanol (<2%) and Malachite Green Chloride (<0.1%).
This product is intended for use with all ornamental pond fish. Not for use with fish or aquatic invertebrates intended for human consumption. This is not an economic poison and is not intended for use as such.
Directions for use
Dose at the rate of one teaspoon (5 mL.) for each 20 gallons (76 L.) of water, or one fluid ounce per 120 gallons (454 L.). Prior to the initial use of MICROBE-LIFT/Ich-Out a partial water change of 20% or more should be made; this water change should be coordinated with the period when the diseased fish are showing the least number of cysts (spots). Carbon filtration must be removed during treatment.
(CAUTION: Do not stop other filtration.) Treatments may be repeated, following the recommended water change, at least every 24 hours. As with the initial dosage of MICROBE-LIFT/Ich-Out the best results can be expected if the water change and dosage are performed when the diseased fish are showing the fewest cysts (spots). Treatment in a separate quarantine (Q/T) tank is strongly recommended.
For increased effectiveness, combine with MICROBE-LIFT Protectant or Restore.
