    A proprietary formula of water and formaldehyde (<3%)


      To treat, dose one (1) teaspoon (~5 mL) of Ich-X® SW to 10 gallons (38L) of actual water in system. Care should be taken to avoid over-dosing and the addition of aeration during treatment is always helpful.

      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 a 30% water change using your premixed saltwater before each addition of Ich-X SW®  and (4) repeat treatments at least every 24 hours, but no more than every 8 hours when accelerating treatment, depending on the course of the disease. Treatment should continue for a minimum of three (3) days beyond the visible signs of the disease. For use as a short term bath (dip) add two (2) teaspoons (~10 mL) per gallon of water and expose the diseased fish for approximately 30 minutes. (refer to the Ich-X® SW Product Data Sheet for complete details on this process).

      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 238 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.
