Hikari® Ich-X® is a safer and more effective way to treat Ich and similar conditions such as Cryptocaryonaisis, Trichodiniasis, Velvet and Saprolegniasis. Ich-X® utilizes the most widely respected formulation, with a less toxic form of malachite green.
16oz bottle treats 920 gallons. To treat ichthyophthiriasis ("ich") of freshwater fishes and cryptocaryonaisis ("marine ich") or marine fishes, add 1 teaspoon (5 mL) per 10 gallons. For best results, treat in a separate quarantine/treatment tank, remove activated carbon from filters and clean or remove mechanical filtration media, and make at least 1/3 water change before each addition of Ich-X®. Repeat treatment at least every 24 hours, but not more often than every 8 hours. Do not overdose.
Do not use with any other medications. Do not use with sulfinate or sulfoxylate based water conditioners. Ich-X® may permanently stain silicone tanks and sealants, rocks, concrete, plastic objects, clothing, laminate countertops, floors, furniture and carpeting. May be harmful to some invertebrates (e.g. filter feeders); use caution and observe carefully when treating habitats with invertebrates. If stress is observed among treated animals, immediately perform a 50% or larger water change. For ornamental fish only. Not for human medical, veterinary or food fish use.
