Microbe-Lift® Broad Spectrum Disease Treatment (BSDT) is formulated with Malachite Green & Formalin for use with diseases such as Ichthyophthirius (Ich), Chilodonella, Costia, Oodinium, Trichodina and fungal infections. Malachite green and formalin are two drugs that are more effective and less toxic in combination than when used individually. What makes Microbe-Lift® BSDT the pre-eminent product in this field is the fact that it is formulated with malachite green chloride, instead of the more toxic oxalate salt. As with any malachite green and formalin treatment, do not use with other medications.

  • Safest and most effective treatment for control of diseases such as Ich, Costia, Trichodina, Chilodonella, Oodinium and fungal infections
  • Not an economic poison and not intended for use as such
  • Can be used in water temperatures as low as 50° F -- the ONLY malachite green and formalin treatment that can do so


  • Each ounce treats up to 300 gallons of water.
  • As with all disease treatments, at least 25% of the water must be changed initially (and 90% or more will greatly improve effectiveness).
  • Remove all carbon filtration just before adding Microbe-Lift® BSDT, and replace the carbon at the conclusion of the treatment.
  • Treatment may be repeated daily following at 25% minimum water change. The treatment may be repeated every 8 to 12 hours depending upon the response of the fishes to the treatment.
  • Do not bypass your bio-filters, allowing a more comprehensive treatment of the entire pond system.


  • Poisonous to humans. Harmful or fatal if swallowed! Keep out of reach of children.
  • Not for human or veterinary medical use
  • Intended for use with all ornamental pond fish and may not be used with fishes intended for human consumption
  • See product label for appropriate response to accidental swallowing or contact
