Microbe-Lift® Ich-Out

  • Treament For "Ich" Diseases
  • Therapy For Infected Koi & Goldfish
  • Helps Guard Against Fungal Infections

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 re-treatments may be done as necessary.

Usage Information

Ich-Out - 16 Ounces
16 Ounces
Application Liquid
Gallons Treated Per Bottle Up To 1,920

How To Apply

Use 5 ml per 20 gallons or 1 oz per 120 gallons of pond water. Prior to the initial use of Microbe-Lift® Ich-Out, a partial water change of 25% or more should be made; this water change should be coordinated with the period when the diseased fish are showing the least number of cysts (spots).

Carbon filtration must be removed from pond during treatment, but take caution and make sure not to stop other filtration. Re-treatments may be repeated, following the recommended water change, at least every 24 hours.

As with the initial dosage of Microbe-Lift® Ich-Out the best results can be expected if the water change and dosage are performed when the diseased fish are showing the fewest cysts (spots). Treatment in a separate quarantine tank is strongly recommended.
