To treat “ich” disease (ichthyophthiriasis) of freshwater fishes and “marine ich” disease (cryptocaryonaisis) of marine fishes, add one (1) teaspoon (~5 mL) of Ich-X to 10 gallons of aquarium water.
For Best Results:
1) always treat in a separate quarantine/treatment tank
2) remove activated carbon from filters and clean or replace mechanical filtration media (do not stop filtration!)
3) make at least 1/3 water change before each addition of Ich-X
4) repeat treatments at least every 24 hours, but no more often than every 8 hours, depending upon the course of the disease
DO NOT OVERDOSE
Ingredients: water, formaldehyde (<5%), methanol (<2%), malachite green chloride (<0.1%)
Caution: Do not use Ich-X with any other medications. Do not use with sulfinate-, or sulfoxylate-base water conditioners. Ich-X may permanently stain silicone tanks and sealants, rocks, concrete, plastic objects, clothing, laminate countertops, floors, furniture, and carpeting. Ich-X may be harmful to some invertebrates (e.g. filter feeders); use caution and observe carefully when treating aquariums with invertebrates. Immediate 50% or larger, water changes should be performed if stress is observed among treated animals.
DANGER: May be harmful or FATAL if swallowed! If swallowed, call a physician or Poison Control Center. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water or milk and induce vomiting by touching the back of the throat with a finger, or, if available by administering syrup of ipecac. Do not induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. In case of contact, immediately flush skin or eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes; for eyes, get immediate medical attention.
Because We Care: Ich-X has been developed to offer assistance to aquarium or pond keepers who are encountering problems with ich who have tried other treatments unsuccessfully.
