Fritz ParaCleanse treats and controls a wide variety of parasitic diseases. Use Fritz ParaCleanse for outbreaks of aquatic parasites including velvet (Oodinium dinoflagellates), hole-in-the-head disease (Hexamita spp. & Spironucleus), fish lice, or gill & skin flukes (Dactylogyrus & Gyrodactylus). This treatment is suitable for fresh and saltwater aquariums, and will not discolor the water.
Use of a hospital tank is recommended. No water changes, pH, or temperature adjustments necessary if readings are in the ideal range (Freshwater pH 6.4 - 7.6 / Saltwater 8.0 -8.4, temperature 68̊to 82̊F). Remove all chemical filtration (carbon, ion exchange resins) before and during use. Turn off UV sterilizer if present during treatment. Aeration and water flow should be maintained. In marine aquariums turn off protein skimmer during treatment; resume use after completion of treatment. The active ingredients in Fritz ParaCleanse can negatively affect beneficial bacteria which remove ammonia and nitrite from the water. Testing for ammonia and nitrite is recommended. Chemical ammonia removers such as Fritz Aquatics A.C.C.R. may be used during treatment to prevent ammonia poisoning of the fish. Note: Fritz ParaCleanse will not color or cloud aquarium water.
