Will API SUPER ICK CURE discolor an acrylic tank?

API SUPER ICK CURE medication and many other API medications will discolor aquarium water. It is important to remove any ornaments or fake plants that you may not want to stain prior to dosing. Do remember that the discoloration is part of the medication, so do not try to remove colors until the end of the treatment. The discoloration will naturally fade with time and light exposure, but can be eliminated more quickly by performing frequent partial water changes and adding API ACTIVATED CARBON or API BIO-CHEM ZORB to the filter media.

    Fast and effective!

    By on

    Long story short, I did not quarantine my new fish that I bought from a "reputable" fish store. So I called them to let them know I noticed some ick and slime on the fish I just put in my tank (still kicking myself for doing this -knowing better!), and the man tries to tell me that it must be my water conditions... it had been set up for months and never had a problem. I bought this from Chewy and it was here in 2 days. I put it in at half a dose because I have shrimp and live plants all in this tank and the next day EVERYONE was much HAPPIER and looked 90% better. By the 2nd half dose treatment all the ick was gone- all of it. I did lose 2 bettas that I was very attached to and it really sucks Long story short, I did not quarantine my new fish that I bought from a "reputable" fish store.

So make sure to get this at the first sign of ick!! … more

    Saved My Fish!

    By on

    I didn't purchase this through chewy as I did not have time to wait, but after watching one of my fish lay at the bottom with white spots for a while it's so good to see him ick-free and swimming around as usual!

    Not Bad for an Amateur

    By on

    My fish were infected and it was getting worse. When this product finally arrived I immediately applied the medication. After the first 48 hours, I could see the fish was cured. At the second application, I felt it was a good follow up to prevent reinfection. It was easy and effective. My tank is happy again and so am I.
