To treat “ich” disease (ichthyophthiriasis) of freshwater fishes and “marine ich” disease (cryptocaryonaisis) of marine fishes, add 3 drops of Quick Ich-X® per 2 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 a 1/3 water change before each addition of Quick Ich-X® (use ULTIMATE® to condition new water), and (4) repeat treatments at least every 24 hours, but no more often than every 8 hours, depending upon the course of the disease (refer to the Quick Ich-X® Product Data Sheet for more information). Continue uninterrupted treatment for three (3) days after visible signs of disease conditions cease. DO NOT OVERDOSE.

CAUTION: Do NOT use Quick Ich-X® with any other medications. Do NOT use with sulfinate or sulfoxylate-based water conditioners. Quick Ich-X® may permanently stain silicone tank sealants, rocks, concrete, plastic objects, clothing, laminate counter tops, floors, furniture and carpeting. Quick Ich-X® may be harmful to some invertebrates (e.g. filter feeders); use caution and observe carefully when treating aquariums with invertebrates. An immediate 50%, or larger, water change should be performed if stress is observed among treated animals.
