Safety Stop is a simple and effective way to help protect your Saltwater and Freshwater aquarium fish from serious unwanted disease outbreaks caused by external parasites, and bacterial and fungal infections. New fish are often the source of infectious diseases that can wipeout an entire aquarium. Be proactive and give your fish a Safety Stop bath to significantly lower the risk of introducing deadly diseases. Protect your investment!!!

Safety Stop also significantly increases oxygen in a new fishes blood stream minimizing stress and helping to keep the immune system strong!

While there is no substitute for extended quarantine of new fish in a separate hospital tank, often it is not practical. We recommend using Safety Stop before introducing the new fish into your main aquarium or into the quarantine tank. For multiple tank owners, it should be used anytime a fish is transferred from one tank to another including all quarantine tanks.

How to use product:
  1. Take fish from fish store directly home without delay. Acclimate fish to the same temperature and pH of the aquarium before performing the Safety Stop bath.
  2. While fish is acclimating prepare the two baths: into clean, non-metallic containers (i.e., a plastic or glass bucket), add one gallon of water directly from the aquarium into each bucket. With scissors, cut the edge of the product packages and pour PART A into the first container and PART B into the second container Monitor for temperature changes.
  3. Gently agitate both solutions with an air stone. Leave the air stones in the container to oxygenate the water when fish is in the bath.
  4. Remove the fish to be treated from acclimation water and deposit in bath PART A for 45 min (30 min if fish has been shipped overnight within the last 72 hours). Keep a loose cover on bath to make sure fish doesn’t jump out. Carefully watch the fish for signs of stress during the entire treatment process. Signs of stress include heavy breathing, erratic swimming, rolling, etc. If fish shows signs of stress reduce time and put immediately into PART B bath.
  5. After Part A, transfer fish to Part B bath for 45 min. Continuing to watch for signs of stress. If signs of stress occur, remove before treatment is over, and transfer to quarantine tank or prepared aquarium. Do not put bath water into aquarium. After treatment B is over net fish into aquarium.
  6. Observe fish after introduction to tank to make sure tank mates are not disturbing fish. It is good idea to feed the tank simultaneously while introducing the new fish to keep the resident fish occupied. Keep light levels low for 24 hours after introduction. Bath should be discarded after several hours but can be used on multiple fish within a few hours or at the same time.

Not a Quarantine Sustitute

REVIEW
This may be preventative but it just may be a waste of money. As the instructions state, this will not work on sick fish and this is OK. However, if your fish are shipped to you, it is very difficult for most to tell if a fish IS sick. They are generally hungry, could be lacking oxygen, pale, afr...Read More

Won't Receive Fish Without It

REVIEW
For a product like this, it's hard to gauge efficacy. However, since I've started using it before my quarantine tank, I have yet to lose a fish to anything. Prior, I've lost ~5-10% of the fish in quarantine, usually due to suspicious ailments (nothing clear like ich or velvet). Now, no issues. Q...Read More

REVIEW
After I lost my whole tank to disease I really liked the idea of this product. Your not suppose to use it on sick fish, it's just supposed to be used on new fish entering your system. I guess I don't know if it worked or not because its preventative, but I have used it a few times and I have no fish...Read More
