100% organic fungal disease external treatment for aquarium fishes. Rid-Fungus is an easy to use treatment for all types of external and epidermal fungi on fishes and aquatic invertebrates, whether fresh or brackish water, or marine. Fungi are very important pathogens of fishes and their eggs. These fungi include for fresh water the species of Saprolegnia, Achlya, Leptomitus, Pythium, and for marine Exophiala, Ichthyophonus, Rid-Fungus is especially suitable for tropical marine aquariums containing aquatic invertebrates, because it also treats their fungal infections, while not adversely affecting coral reef animals, including corals, anemones, starfish, snails, crabs, and shrimp.
Rid-Fungus is a treatment composed of 100% multiple organic ingredients. Its broad spectrum of activity and lack of toxicity make Rid-Fungus effective without requiring a specific diagnosis. It stops infectious and external parasitic invasions from getting started and in turn prevents many secondary infections. In addition to the infections listed above, it is effective against Ichthyophthirius (ich) as well as many other protozoans (single cell parasites such as Costia, Trichodina, Chilodonella, and in salt water Crytocaryon (saltwater ich) and Amyloodinium. In short, Rid-Fungus helps fishes fight off a wide spectrum of infections.
The herbals used in Rid-Fungus have been selected because they have been shown to have a powerful effect against aquatic diseases, yet are far more forgiving on the animals than harsh chemicals. 4 ounces (118 mL) per bottle. Treats 240 gallons (908 L).
Directions for Use: In Fresh, Brackish or Salt Water: Shake well before each use. It is recommended to remove any carbon filtration media so that it does not reduce effectiveness of the treatment, although for most active carbons its removal is not essential. Fungus-Rid does not interfere with the use of protein skimmers or UV ultraviolet sterilizers. For treating stressed fish and when netting, handling or adding new fish, amphibians, turtles and other aquatic reptiles: Add 1 drop per gallon or 1 teaspoon (approx. 5mL) of Rid-Fungus for every 10 gallons (approx. 40 liters) of water. Repeat dosage daily, 3-7 days of treatment will usually be sufficient. Cold water conditions may require a longer treatment time. Water changes are not required for this treatment to be effective. If besides fungus the fish have Ich (Ichthiophthirius) infections, the treatment will need to be made daily until all of the white spots have hatched out and their young have been killed by the treatments. For established or severe infections - double the dose. Continue treatments until a cure is effected. It is recommended that for double doses per day, one should be in the morning, the other later in the day.
