Treats "ich" diseases

MICROBE-LIFT/Ich-Out is the safest and most effective treatment for "ich" and many other protozoan-caused diseases in pond fish (e.g. the diseases caused by Ichthyophthirius, Cryptocaryon, Costia, Chilodonella, Oodinium and Amyloodinium).MICROBE-LIFT/Ich-Out is also an effective treatment of fungal infections in pond fish.

When used as directed, MICROBE-LIFT/Ich-Out will not harm biological filtration. As with all treatments, the prompt use of MICROBE-LIFT/Ich-Out will help insure a complete recovery of the diseased fish.

MICROBE-LIFT/Ich-Out is a powerful treatment and may not be tolerated by fish that are heavily traumatized by their disease.

Observation of the diseased fish before and during treatment is required so that appropriate water changes and retreatments may be done as necessary.
