For Aquarium: To treat "ich" disease (ichthyophthiriasis) of freshwater fishes and "marine ich" disease (cryptocaryonaisis) of marine fishes, add one (1) teaspoon (~5 mL) of Ich-X® to 10 gallons (38L) of aquarium water.
For Pond: To treat "ich" disease (icthyophthiriasis) of pond and freshwater fishes, add one (1) teaspoonful (~5 mL) of Pond Solution® Ich-X® to 50 gallons (189 L) of Pond or aquarium water. One (1) ounce (29 mL) treats 300 gallons (1,135 L).
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 1/3 water change before each addition of Ich-X® (use Ultimate® or a combination of Stress-X® and ClorAm-X® to condition new water). Larger water change improves performance; and (4) repeat treatments at least every 24 hours, but no more than every 8 hours, depending upon the course of the disease (refer to the Ich-X® Product Data Sheets for Aquarium or Ich-X® Product Data Sheets for Pond). Continue uninterrupted treatments for three (3) days after all visible signs of disease conditions cease.
DO NOT OVERDOSE - this means you should calculate the actual amount of water in your tank by multiplying the length x width x height and dividing by 238 to get the true gallons. Please also deduct the amount of space consumed by substrate (gravel, sand, etc.) rock, decorations or other things which are displacing water.
