Fish Ick & Parasite Treatments

Your fish aquarium is a tranquil, beautiful and fragile ecosystem. Without proper care and maintenance, this miniature aquatic oasis can become susceptible to parasites, bacteria and fungus that can cause diseases like ick, mouth and fin rot, flukes and ulcers. If left untreated, parasites will not only cause infection, tissue damage and death in the host fish, but they will also pass to other fish in the tank and put the entire community at risk. API General Cure Parasitic Fish Disease Treatment is made with sodium chloride that will eliminate parasites within a matter of 48 hours. It can be used in both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. Tetra Ick Guard Fast Remedy Ick Treatment can be used to prevent and treat a broad spectrum of fish diseases in freshwater fish. This can be used as a preventative when adding new fish as well. You can also try API Super Ick Cure for Aquariums to treat ick, which is also called white spot disease.
