Seachem Paraguard (250 mL)
Treats 500 gallons.
*ParaGuard is a fish and filter safe aldehyde based parasite control product (for parasites on fish).
Unlike toxic and sometimes difficult to use formalin based medications, ParaGuard contains no formaldehyde or methanol and will not alter pH.
*ParaGuard employs a proprietary, synergistic blend of aldehydes, malachite green and fish protective polymers that effectively and efficiently eradicates many ectoparasites (Ich, etc.) and external fungal/ bacterial/ viral lesions (such as fin rot or secondary infections).
*ParaGuard is especially useful in hospital or receiving tanks for new fish and whenever new fish are introduced into a community tank.
*ParaGuard is generally shrimp and snail safe when used as directed
*As well ParaGuard can be combined with Kanaplex and AAP Furan 2 for a potent treatment for some stubborn fungal infections (such as Ichthyophonus) or even Angelfish Virus (AKA Angelfish Aids). Please note that this combination is a potent treatment and should be used only in extreme cases.
*Finally, ParaGuard can also be combined with Metronidazole for often effective nematode (worms) treatment.
*Dosage: 5 mL (one capful) per 10 gallons daily (a small water change of 10-20%just prior to each treatment can increase effectiveness).
For 30-60 minute fish baths, use 3 mL per 1 gallon.
1/2 Dose is suggested for delicate fish such as Cory Cats or Clown Loaches.
