Quick Overview

Fritz FixIck 16 oz

Fritz FixIck is a revolutionary new way to treat aquatic external parasites including Ick, Chilodonella, Trichodina and Tetrahymena. As one of the most common diseases most aquarists will encounter, finding an Ick treatment that is simple, safe, and highly effective can be difficult. Fritz FixIck does not contain formaldehyde, a common active in many ick treatments. Formaldehyde will cause damage to gills and internal organs, which can result in additional stress and fish loss. One of the active ingredients in Fritz FixIck is Gentian Violet, which gives it a recognizable purple hue. This compound is much gentler than malachite green based treatments. Also improving on previous treatments, Fritz FixIck has been shown to be effective at killing Ick parasites with a simple 2-dose system, with no reinfection after one week. Due to Fritz FixIck’s additional antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, secondary infections were also prevented with no additional medications, resulting in even higher recovery rates.

Directions & Dosage

Before Dosing: Adjust temperature to 82-85°F. This accelerates the life cycle of the parasites and insures maximum exposure to the treatment. Remove all chemical filtration (carbon, ion exchange resins) before use. Turn off protein skimmers before treatment; resume use after completion of treatment. Do not perform water changes during treatment if possible. If water changes are necessary, treat replacement water with FixIck. May stain some ornaments, if concerned remove before dosing.

Treatment: Shake well before each dose. One complete course of treatment will take six days. If fish are eating, feed lightly during treatment.
Day 1: Add 5 drops per gallon/5 ml (1 tsp) per 10 gallons
Day 2: Add 5 drops per gallon/5 ml (1 tsp) per 10 gallons
Day 3: Perform a 25 to 30% water change
Day 4: Add 5 drops per gallon/5 ml (1 tsp) per 10 gallons
Day 5: Add 5 drops per gallon/5 ml (1 tsp) per 10 gallons
Day 6: Perform a 25 to 30% water change.

If necessary, you may perform a second six-day course of treatment. If no further symptoms are observed, replace chemical filtration and resume use of protein skimmers as well as normal feeding. Adjust temperature back to normal.
