Rated 3 out of 5 by from Going down hill fast I am using this right now and have been for four days. I started right away at the first sing of spots. After two days it looked like it was almost gone and now at four days my fish have so many spots and are very lethargic just laying on the bottom. I am doing the water changes and dosing at the same time everyday. I don’t know if this is going to work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible I had a really bad ick problem in my tank and could not get it under control. i tried 4 different medicines before I finally came across this Marineland product. It has a natural ingredient to it that wasn't harmful to my non-sick fish or any of my live plants. It will turn your water blue for a little bit after each dose but it will usually fade away before the next dose. My rock decoration has the slightest blue tint to it now (it actually looks kind of cool), but I'll take a slight blue stain over losing all my fish any day. After 5 days of treatment, every fish that had ick is 100% completely clear of it and everyone is doing great! Thank you so much for this product Marineland, you saved many fish lives at our house!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped so much! I used this to treat a female betta I brought home from a pet store because she had really bad ich. I used 1/2 tsp of this in my 5 gallon tank daily and she was ich free in 5 days. I would highly recommend continuing to use this treatment and continuing water changes after all the white spots are gone to treat the ich leftover in the tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thumbs up This has cleared up the Ich on my Blue Rams nicely and within just a few days. My Neon Tetras and Cobra Guppies havent quite cleared up yet, but they look much better. I’m wondering whether or not this product is plant safe since a few of my Amazon Swords and Crytocorynes seem to be melting a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Our fish recently got ick and I was super nervous. I read several different ways to treat the aquarium, but they were super laborious and complicated. I went to our local pet store and they recommended this product. We followed instructions,20% water change and such. Our cichlids are almost all cleared up and it’s been only 2 days! I am very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I used this product for years with new fish without issues. I am VERY strict about constant, super-clean water and perfect temperatures, so losing fish is rare for me. TLC is the key to aquarium success and my water always remains extremely clear and the fish are always active and healthy. Dont over-feed, spray lysol in the room or just FEED & FORGET. Watch over your fish by watching over their environment. If you follow those simple TLC steps, you may never have to use and meds at all.

What are the directions for this product?  Do I add it to the water every day?  For how many days?

Asked by: Wendym
Do a partial water change prior to each dose, and remove the carbon from your filter system, but keep it running. Dose once a day until all spots are gone for 24 hours. BREX

Is there a different method to treating the fish instead of putting the med in my 5gl tank maybe putting the fish in a quarantine tank with the meds and salt for a number amount of time everyday for the 6 day treatment???

Asked by: Ng801
Yes, you can certainly set up a q tank, but you leave the fish in it, and treat him there until he is well, then move him back to the display tank. BREX

Will this also cure Cotton Wool Disease? 

Asked by: GeorgieFloats
No, this is not going to cure that, try Fungus Guard or All In One Remedy. BREX

You need instructions that are clear. Do you mean 25% water change before each dose or only if it persists longer than 4-6 days. 

Asked by: Wendy F
You always do a small water change, anywhere between 10-25% prior to any dose of any medication to keep water quality in decent shape. BREX

The toxicity of Malachite/Victoria Green varies with a number of factors including species of fish and its size, species of fish, etc., along with prevailing water conditions. There is a lot of dispute about using it with invertebrates so we typically recommend not using it with shrimp, snails, etc. As otos are scaleless, and can be sensitive, it would not be recommended with them either.

I spilt this stuff EVERYWHERE! What can I do to get it out of painted walls and my wooden fish tank stand?

Asked by: Erik30
It typically fades with time. Acetone may remove it, but we have not done any research on this topic. BREX
