Polyplab Medic is a highly effective treatment for external fish parasites present in both marine and freshwater environments. It contains an antibiotic component and a reef-safe oxidizing agent that work together to help eliminate parasites. It is particularly effective against:
  • Marine Ich - Crytpocaryon irritans
  • Freshwater Ich - Ichthyophthirius multifiliis
  • Marine Velvet - Amyloodinium ocellatum
Features:
  • Completely reef-safe
  • Does not harm invertebrates
  • Does not harm nitrifying bacteria
  • Buffered to maintain physiological pH
How Medic works: Many external fish parasites have very similar life cycles. In particular, these parasites have an ""attached"" stage (trophonts), a ""matured"" stage (protomonts), a ""reproductive"" stage (tomonts), and a ""free-swimming"" stage (theronts/dinospores). Most available treatments do not target the free-swimming stage of the parasite which is one of the primary difficulties in dealing with these infections.

Research with ciliated protozoans has shown that the ""free-swimming"" stage of these parasites have remarkably consistent hatching times. We have engineered our medication to be most efficient during this stage.

Our medication targets the trophont stage of the parasite but is also very effective in disrupting the life cycle during the ""free-swimming"" stage. Thus, when using the medication, hobbyists should try to maintain the highest concentration of the medication during this ""free-swimming"" timeframe - when the oxidative component in the medication is particularly effective against theronts/dinospores.

Active Ingredients: Crystallized Peroxide Salts.

Will treat approximately 550G of system volume.

Doesn't work

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
This is expensive and it doesn't work, simple as that. I have not come across anything that will kill ich. Best way is to quarantine new fish for a month that are known to have ich (especially tangs).

Ich Issue

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
At first this product seems to be working. It initially decreased the visable Ich on my fish. I am nearing the 10 day period and the Ich has started to increase and become worse again. I am using the maximum dosage suggested 12 hrs. apart just as the direction indicate.
