How Medic Works

Many external fish parasites have very similar life cycles. In particular, these parasites have an “attached stage (trophonts), a “matured” stage (protomonts, a ‘reproductive’ stage (tomonts), and a ‘free-swimming’ stage (theronts/dinospores).

Other available products do not target the free-swimming stage, which is one of the primarily difficulties in dealing with these parasites. Research with dilated protozoans has shown that the ‘free-swimming’ stage of parasites have remarkably consistent hatching times. We have engineered our product to be most efficient during this stage. Medic conditions the aquarium water, disrupting the life cycle during the ‘free-swimming’ timeframe – when the oxidative component in the product is particularly effective against theronts/dinospores.

Completely reef-safe, buffered to maintain physiological pH. Does not harm invertebrates and does not harm nitrifying bacteria.

Active Ingredients: Crystallized Peroxide Salts.

Directions for use:

  • Use one level scoop of Medic for every 50 G (US) of your system volume twice per day. 1 USG = 1.2 UKG
  • Add once in the morning (Before 10am if possible).
  • Add once in the evening (After 10pm if possible).
  • Continue to add for 10 days.

Note: UV, ozone and carbon must not be used at any point throughout the 10 day cycle. However Protein skimmers can be run as normal.

The degree of infestation may seem to disappear when white specks are no longer visible on the fish. This is merely part of the natural cycle of the parasite. Therefore you must continue adding the Conditioner for the entire course (10 days) for maximum effectiveness.

After the 10 day course is complete, run granular activated carbon for 2 or 3 days.

Store the product in a cool and dry location, away from direct sunlight.
