Description

Rid your fish of ich quickly and effectively with API Super Ick Cure for Aquariums. Ich, or ichthyophthirius, also called white spot disease, is a highly contagious and destructive, microscopic parasite that burrows into gill and skin tissue, causing severe damage and secondary infections. Early symptoms include white spots, darting and scratching against surfaces while more advanced stages can cause labored breathing. API Super Ick Cure for Aquariums kills the parasite, usually within 24 hours, and adds a natural skin slime to protect tissue destroyed by the disease.

Key Benefits
  • Quickly and effectively rids fish of ich and adds a slime coat for further protection
  • Disrupts the lifecycle of the ich parasite, and kills the parasite within 24 hours
  • For use in both freshwater and saltwater aquariums
  • Combats secondary bacterial infections
  • Early symptoms include white spots, darting and scratching against surfaces, while more advanced stages can cause labored breathing

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.

  • 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.

    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!
