I'm beginning treatment for multiple glofish with ick in my 10 gallon tank. Should I do daily water changes during treatment? Do I need to replace the gravel after treatmeant is done? Should I replace the bio wheel in the filter?
Yes, you should do a small change of about 10% prior to each dose. This keeps the water quality up for you while you are dosing. No, the gravel nor the bio wheel need replacing at all, but you should remove your carbon during treatment and then replace it afterwards.

Do I take my fish filer out or leave it in?
We always recommend removing it, but leave the filter running while you treat, in order to provide oxygen.

I'm treating a 1 gallon tank and the directions say 1 tab per 5 gallons. Should I cut the tab in fours?
Yes you can cut the tablets, but you would need to make sure that the dosage would be correct. If you cannot cut the tablet into 5 parts, then we would suggest dissolving the table whole in a 5 gallon bucket and then using as much as you need during the water changes to accommodate for the correct treatment of the tank.

How many tablets of all in one remedy to I add to a 60 gallon tank is it 12 per day?
Yes, it would be 12 for 60 gallons. You probably have 50-55 gallons of water, however, as some water is displaced by gravel, décor, large fish, etc. I would recommend 10 tablets per day to avoid over-medicating.

Will it help treat hole in the head for my oscar?
Not as effectively as Parasite Guard. This medication is meant to be for minor issues such as ick or clamped fins. Hole In The Head is much tougher. By the way, while the cause is not truly known, it is suspected to be due to poor water quality and/or poor diet. Oscars commonly get this disease due to both. They require weekly partial water changes, with a good vacuuming of their gravel, and the filter system should be well maintained monthly. Additionally, live food should be a treat only. They require a high quality cichlid diet such as one of our Cichlid Foodsticks or JumboMin.

Does the all in one treat cloudy eyes?
Yes, it does. Test your pH as well. A low pH can be a major cause of cloudy eyes.

Can I feed my goldfish while on treatment.
Yes, as long as they feel well enough to eat. Even though they are sick, they should be active and showing an interest when you walk up to the tank with food, in order for you to feed them.

how well will this work for a betta with extreme fin rot ?
i bought my betta , steve french , back in November . now , im somewhat of an experienced fish keeper . he was in a 2 gallon tank with a heater and filter . the temperature always stayed between 76 and 78 degrees . he got his back fin caught in the filter and lost a little bit of his fins . i was able to fix it and they grew back fairly quick . but about a month ago it came back with a vengeance . over half of his tail is gone . when that happened i moved him to his own 10 gallon with a heater , filter and a few live plants to assist with water quality . he got salt treatments and fungus remedy tablets . it seemed to slow it down a little bit but he was still losing fins . now his top fin has a few splits and so does his bottom one . i change about 30 percent of the water once a week and clean the gravel once a month . when i looked at him today it looked like he had some regrowth on his back fin . but its still kind of hard for me to be 100 % sure . i just wana know if this product will help with fin regrowth . I've aldo been using stress coat when i change the water . ive done everything at this point to cure it and this product is my last hope . how long would it be until i saw a noticeable difference ?
In general, fin rot is often brought on by improper pH, or lack of maintenance. Your maintenance sounds pretty good, so you might want to check the pH. Lifeguard is a good treatment to use for an external issue when you are unsure what the issue may be. In your case, I would recommend Fungus Guard instead. It treats both bacterial and fungal issues, and fin rot is usually bacterial.
The key, however, is to get the water quality such that it will not keep coming back.

Marineland Aall-In-One Remedy
I have been treating my Betta fish for four days now in a two and a half Gallon tank with a heater and filter (currently not in use because of treatment.) The water parameters are well conditioned, and the temperature is at seventy degrees Fahrenheit. Yet my Betta has lost most of the color in its lower body, as well as fins. He also is very receptive to food but cannot hold it down like he once was able to. Is this a result of a miss diagnosis, overdose, or another complication. The fish does not have clamped, or torn fins, nor any abrasions, swelling, or red infections. It does not gasp and seems to be active and responsive to exterior tank motion. Any idea as to what might be causing such a rapid color loss ? Thanks.
My Betta lost half of his tail and was laying on the gravel after my heater stopped working overnight-at that time the water temp.was 70F. It's simply too cold for Betta!.After heater replacement he's happy again and growing his new tail pretty fast;)

Side Effects or Overdose
Before starting the treatment my fish was swimming actively and seemed happy. About 30 minutes after putting 2 tablets in my 10 gallon tank, the fish has been laying on the rocks and almost looks as he is falling asleep (falling over then getting back up). Is this a negative effect on my fish?
Its always good to dissolve the tabs in the water (just get some from your tank..) before to add it in the tank.Also,check water quality and temperature before to treat - it still a meds and if your water isn't in great condition-fish will be double stressed.

after 5 days
I have just treated for ich for the 5 days it tells on the bottle, what happens after the last treatment if the ich is still on the fish what do I do?
Depending on the severity of the infection, your tank may need to be retreated after the first 5 day cycle. Before treating a second time, i recommend to do the 25%-30% water change, as instructed, and put the carbon media back in your filter and let it run for at least 24 hours before treating again. Be sure that the carbon media, or cartridge is removed from your filter for the duration of the treatment. Good Luck;)!!

Marine land all in one remedy
Is this product safe for clown fish?
It is safe for clownfish, but not scaleless fish or invertebrates so if there is any live rock in the tank, anemones, corals, shrimp, starfish, etc, do not use the product. I believe the clownfish is not scaleless.

Can I use the all-in-one with ick guard?
I'm pretty sure my fish have ick along with what might be fungus caused by the ick. I read in an earlier response that ick guard is better for treating ick than the all in one. Ive been treating for 3 days and my fish seem to be doing better with the all in one but now a third fish seems to have caught ick. I'm pretty sure that I will need a second round of trestment as the fish are doing better but not getting completely well. Can I use ick guard simultaneously with the marineland all in one. I really want to get my fish and tank healthy again and don't want any to die.
No, never mix meds. Ick may cause a secondary bacterial infection ,but it will not cause fungus. Stick with the All In One. On day 6, do a 25% partial water change. Add aquarium salt to the new water and let it dissolve. You want 2 tablespoons per 10 gallons of water. If you are mixing less water than that, add 1.5 teaspoons per 2 gallons of water. Run carbon for a few hours, then remove it, and either start another 5 day course of All In One or switch meds. Without more description of what you are observing, I cannot help narrow down the choices of meds.

After each dose has disolved, can i replace the caron filter and then take out at next dose, and repeat this patter for the treatment's entirety?
No, the carbon must remain out during the entire treatment period which is a minimum of 5 days.
Date published: 2015-10-27
Can you use this product for longer then the 5 days recommended? It is day four and my fish is acting and starting to look a lot better but he is VERY sick and I want to make sure I get rid if this once and for all.
Yes, just do a partial water treatment on day 6 and then start the second week of treatment, keeping the carbon out of the filter.

safety for tank biofilter of the "all in one remedy"
I can't believe no one out of 27 questioners asked about the tanks bacteria. I find it odd that the medicine does not say it will not harm the biofilter, unless it will.
All medications, unless they are all natural, will affect the biological filter to some degree or another. In general, if the tank is well maintained, and properly stocked, you will never notice anything. However, we do always recommend a partial water change prior to the first dose, and 24 hours after the last dose, just to keep water quality at its best, especially since you have to remove the carbon from the tank.

Is this safe for Discus????
When I called the marineland 1800 number, I talked to someone who said it is safe for plants. I read on this form that it's not... I am just trying to get a strait answer. I also keep my tank at 87 degrees for my Discus. (The place where I bought them said to keep it that warm with juvenile discus) If I take the plants out can I put them back in when I am done treating the tank? How long do I wait. I also have shrimp. How long do I wait to put them back in???
I would not recommend using it with live plants, shrimp, snails, or scaleless fish. I would remove the plants and the shrimp for the entirety of the treatment, then do a partial water change and add fresh carbon for 24 hours prior to putting them back into the tank.
Your temperature could reduce the amount of available oxygen so I would be careful to have plenty of aeration and would suggest a partial water change prior to the first dose, but yes, the product is safe for discus.

With the All-In-One remedy, is it supposed to turn the water cloudy?
You may get a cloudy effect from the treatment taking effect. This will last about the lenght of the treatment, then when the filter cartridge is reinstalled, it will remove the remainder of the chemical and clear the system.

I have removed the carbon filter. But do I still leave the filter running, even without the carbon filter in it? Also, do I leave their light off the
entire 5 days? Thanks!
Thank you for your response. You would remove the carbon filter cartridge for the entire treatment and leave the filter running for circulation, but can leave the light on.

Why does the box say it treats 180gls? At max it can only treat 30 for 5 days.
Because it can treat up to a 180 gallon tank each day. 36 tablets x 5 = 180. Ao if you owned a 180 gallon tank, you would need 5 boxes.

My two goldfish got ich and I just completed a 3-day cycle with Kordon rapid cure. One of them shed the white spots but both now have starting to have rotten fins. Can I start treatment with this medicine right away after changing 50% of water? Thanks.
Yes, just do the water change and run carbon for about 12 hours, then start the treatment.

So Do i do a 25% water change everyday im treating? Or at the end of the 5 day treatment cycle, and do I leave the carbon out of the filter for 5days?
So for all in one remedy Do i do a 25% water change everyday im treating? Or at the end of the 5 day treatment cycle, and do I leave the carbon out of the filter for 5 days while im treating? Or do i put it back in every day that I treat it. Its frustrating how vague the instructions are. please go more in detail on your product labels. Its the weekend and theres no way to get a hold of anyone off hours.
Remove the carbon until you are completely done with treating the fish. You should do a partial water change prior to the first dose, and 24 hours after the last dose. With the last water change, put your filter cartridge back into the filter with the carbon.

Can I use All-in-One Remedy in a tank with both infected & uninfected fish or do I have to separate sick fish and use it only for them?
I have a 30 Gallon tank with various tropical fish (several tetras, dollies, platys) and it looks like only 2 fish have fin rot. Will the all-in-one remedy hurt the uninfected fish or should I separate the sick fish and only use the medicine for them?
Fin rot is normally bacterial or fungal based in its origination. If a few of your fish are showing symptoms of fin rot, technically (unless brand new inhabitants) the entire tank has been exposed. Because of this, we would suggest you treat the entire tank but please be mindful that our All-in-One remedy is not suitable for scaleless fish, inverts or newly set up aquariums.

Will this work for dropsy?
I have put four sick fish in my hospital tank 10g, with symptoms that appear to be dropsy, will the all in one remedy work?
No, not very well. Dropsy is not usually contagious, and it is rare for more than one fish to portray signs of dropsy. Please email a picture of the fish if you can. If they do have Dropsy, do small water changes frequently, and treat with Fungus Guard.
