Use the DR. BASSLEER ANTI-ICH-method to control Ichthyophthirius multifiliis (fresh water “white-spot”) and Cryptocaryon irritans (“marine ich”). Can be
done in reef tanks, if you use PROTOMOR. This method is also effective against the “New White Spot” Neoichthyophthirius schlotfeldti.
1 Use FAUNAMOR or PROTOMOR (reef safe) according to instruction. Juvenile ICH parasite is damaged or killed. – For the “New White Spot” Neoichthyophthirius
schlotfeldti add 1 – 5 % salt (depending on fish species).
2 Feed DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE during the medicinal treatment for 7 days. Fresh water white spot (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) and marine ICH
(Cryptocaryon irritans) will be cured after these 7 days.
3 If infected by the “New White Spot” Ichthyophthirius schlotfeldti, continue to feed DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE for 10 – 30 days. Adult ICH trophont
will drop from fish and ICH tomite (“baby Ichthyophthirius”) will not attach to fish.
4 Increase temperature by 2 – 3 °C (to 26 – 28 °C, for Discus: 30 – 33 °C). Ensure high oxygen levels.
5 Increase efficiency of filtration by higher flow. Use a fine physical filter (< 300 µm) and UV lamp to collect and kill ICH parasites. Regular filter cleaning.
Exhaust suction should be 5 cm from the bottom of the aquarium to collect ICH tomont.
6 Siphoning bottom of aquarium 2 x per day (morning and evening) to remove ICH tomonts and young ICH parasites.
7 24 hours light will decrease the development of ICH tomites. Warning: Some invertebrates do not tolerate continuous light.
