Fritz FixIck is a revolutionary new way to treat aquatic external parasites. As one of the most common diseases, most aquarists will encounter, finding an Ick treatment that is simple, safe, and highly effective can be difficult, but this treatment delivers! Featuring Gentian Violet, which gives it a recognizable purple hue, this compound is much gentler than malachite green-based treatments.
Before Dosing: Adjust temperature to 82-85?F. This accelerates the life cycle of the parasites and ensures maximum exposure to the treatment. Remove all chemical filtration (carbon, ion exchange resins) before use. Turn off protein skimmers before treatment. Do not perform water changes during treatment if possible. If water changes are necessary, treat replacement water with FixIck. May stain some ornaments, if concerned remove before dosing.Treatment: Shake well before each dose.
