DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Store between 50 and
100 F. Shake vigorously before use. Never handle fish with dry
hands, always sanatize hands before and after handling.
For Wounds On The
Body Of The Fish: Working quickly and carefully, first clean the
wound* with a clean cotton-tip swab, cotton ball or paper toweling wrapped
around a finger; partically dry the wound taking care to not damage adjacent
healthy skin or scales on the fish; next apply enough gel to the cleaned and
dried are to completely cover the wound and some surrounding tissue.
Gently return the treated fish to the water; allow the fish to rest with little
movement to assure that the mass of the gel stays in contact with the wound for
as long as possible. Apply at least every 24 hours as necessary.
*Cleaning Of Large
Wounds: May require the use of a blunt-tip tweezers or forceps to
remove dead and damaged skin or scales or patches of fungal growth. Follow
with swabbing with a cotton-tip swab, cotton ball or paper toweling. The
fish may be returned to the water immediately after cleansing and before the
necessary drying of the wound per the instructions above.
For Fin Rot: Carefully
snip away the eroded tissue and apply the gel to the cut edges of the fin.
Be sure to spread the gel down on both sides of the fin at least 1/4" (6mm)
from the cut area.
For Lesions &
Cysts: Proceed as for wounds; for raised lesions it may be necessary
to re-apply gel more frequently.
