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 Product Data Sheets linked below). 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 231 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.
WARNING: DO NOT ALLOW TO FREEZE – If you find green crystals under the seal of the bottle when opening or noticeable clumps in the material when poured out, the product has been frozen and should not be used. When frozen the active ingredient can become lethal to fish.
NOTE: We do not recommend using any sulfur or sulfinite-based water conditioners with this product. If your normal water conditioner does not list the ingredients please verify with the maker that it does not contain these ingredients. If you notice any rotten egg smell to the product, it likely does have these ingredients and should be avoided as it could cause the product to be less effective and the dissolved oxygen levels to be negatively impacted.
Use Ich-X® to treat conditions related to ich and ich related disease.
Do not use Ich-X® with any other medications. Do not use with sulfinate-, or sulfoxylate-base water conditioners. Ich-X® may permanently stain silicone tanks and sealants, rocks, concrete, plastic objects, clothing, laminate counter tops, floors, furniture and carpeting. Ich-X® may be harmful to some invertebrates (e.g. filter feeders); use caution and observe carefully when treating aquariums with invertebrates. Immediate 50% or larger, water change (using Ultimate® or a combination of Stress-X® and ClorAm-X® to treat the replacement water) should be performed if stress is observed among any of the treated animals. Never treat before going to bed as this limits your ability to monitor progression of treatment or impact to the aquatic environment.
DANGER: May be harmful or FATAL if swallowed! If swallowed, call a physician or Poison Control Center. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water or milk and induce vomiting by touching the back of the throat with finger, or, if available by administering syrup of ipecac. Do not induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. In case of contact, immediately flush skin or eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes; for eyes, get immediate medical attention.
Care should be taken to avoid over-dosing as this can result in fatalities and will not speed healing. It's important to calculate the exact amount of water in your system (exclusive of substrate, rocks, decorations, filtration or other additions) to avoid an overdose.
Because We Care: Ich-X® has been developed to offer assistance to aquarium or pond keepers who are encountering problems with ich or fungal issues who have tried other treatments unsuccessfully.
