AAP Aquatronics Concentrated MethyBlu 1 oz.
Treats 600 Gallons.
• AAP MethyBlu is a more concentrated (5% unlike other Methylene Blue formulations at under 2.5%) useful treatment in hospital tanks.
Also, AAP MethyBlu is also twice the purity of other popular Methylene Blue formulas
As a bath it does not need to be doubled unlike Kordon's and other versions of Methylene Blue to treat fungal (including egg fungus), bacterial, and parasite infections.
As a direct swab, this formula may be diluted 50% with water to save money (however this is not required either)
• Also useful as a bath for ammonia poisoning.
• Can be used for transportation (shipping) of fish as it prevents disease spread and is a hemoglobin transfer agent allowing more oxygen in crowded environments.
All fish safe, but care should be used when used in the main display aquarium, as over use can destroy biological filter beds.
Can be used with caution with many invertebrates such as crabs, shrimps, & snails. HOWEVER we do not recommend the use with most freshwater plants, and Methylene Blue should not be used with marine corals, Cephlapods, & anemones
To prepare a 30 minute Methylene Blue bath; We recommend two drops per gallon or use 1/2 teaspoon of this 5% solution per 5 gallons in a bath of aquarium water from the tank the fish you wish to treat came from.
We suggest using about a ½ gallon of water, however you may use less.
Measurement of the Methylene Blue does not need to be precise (although do not intentionally overdose more than double recommended dose, and even then this should only be used at double strength in fish baths of 30 minutes).
Make sure you keep the water in a warm area, as in a cold room the water temperature can drop rapidly which would stress the fish.
Do NOT pour this water back into your display aquarium when finished. This can be performed up to twice per day.
