What makes this herbal medicine work is its successful use of a special ingredient, which is known as naphtoquinones. It makes it possible for the solution to remove the harmful bacteria from the tank`s environment, without harming the bodies of your fish. It is so safe that you can even pour your recommended dosage into the aquarium daily. This formula combats the sickness-carrying organisms quickly, effectively, and subtly, making sure that your marine inhabitants will not be disturbed in the process. It prevents you from installing several devices, which will consume electricity, as well as a lot of time and effort on your part.
You can be sure that your aquarium is free from disease-carrying bacteria and organisms when you have the Kordon Ich Attack Disease Inhibitor on hand.
- Herbal ICH ATTACK
- 100% Organic
The proper diagnosing of diseases associated with the keeping of aquarium and pond fishes and other aquatic animals is a real challenge for most aquarists and pond keepers. Symptoms are often misread and are often from many causes. Diseases caused by bacteria, fungus or protozoans can be either primary or secondary infections. Knowing whether a symptom is primary or secondary can be very important when selecting a treatment regimen and determining which is which can be complicated. Because most available treatments are selective and toxic, proper treatment selection is difficult and beyond the scope of most aquarists and pond keepers. Mistakes are often lethal.
Ich·Attack has been developed to solve as many of these problems as possible. The herbals used in Ich·Attack have been selected because they have been shown to have a powerful effect against aquatic diseases, yet are far more forgiving on the aquatic patient than most chemicals. Herbal use for aquatics is relatively new, and the pathogens have not built up a resistance to them, as is the case for many antibiotics in use today.
What Kordon has created, led by Dr. Michael Tierra - a well known herbalist whose books on natural botanical treatments are widely read - is to carefully determine which herbals can be used together to cover a wide spectrum of aquatic diseases. The result is a product that is completely unique, very effective, and truly easy to use.
With Ich Attack the user can successfully treat the disease without the necessity of a detailed diagnosis. If the aquatic animals have infections from external multiple diseases the chances are good that one or more of the powerful herbal ingredients in Ich·Attack will treat them. Ich·Attack`s herbal blend provides an extremely broad spectrum of activity, while remaining safe to the animals, thus eliminating costly and dangerous "trial and error".
Ich·Attack IS SAFE FOR USE IN ALL KINDS OF AQUARIUMS AND ORNAMENTAL PONDS:
- effective in fresh, brackish or salt water
- safe for fishes normally sensitive to medications including "scaleless" fishes such as loaches and catfishes, coral reef fishes and fry
- will not harm eggs
- will not harm plants or reef aquariums
- can be used with amphibians and reptiles
- does not affect beneficial nitrifying bacteria
- does not stain aquarium decor, aquarium sealants or equipment

- Ich·Attack can be used with all Kordon Water Conditioners such as NovAqua, AmQuel, and PolyAqua, all Kordon Water Clarifiers (Trans-Clear and Sea Clear) and all AquaTru Water Quality Test Kits.
Shake Well Before Each Use. Carbon should be removed from water filters during treatment
For Diseases, Abrasions and Wounds:
Add 1 teaspoonful (approx. 5 mL) of Ich·Attack for every 10 gallons (approx. 40 liters) of water. Repeat dosage daily for 1 week. For the treatment of ich, continue the treatment for at least 3 days after the last indication (white spots) of the disease is observed. If the symptoms have not cleared up after a week the daily treatment dose can be increased by 50 to 100% (1.5 to 2 teaspoonfuls) and continued for a longer period of time. Continue until the symptoms have disappeared, then make a 25% water change.
As a Disease Inhibitor and Preventative:
Ich Attack is recommended for use in aquariums, ponds and quarantine tanks to help the fishes in resisting external disease outbreaks. Follow the instructions for Diseases, Abrasions and Wounds.
For Netting, Handling or Adding New Fish, Amphibians, Turtles and Other Aquatic Reptiles:
Kordon has been supplying aquarists and pond keepers with the products they need since the 1960`s.

Yes, I would recommend this.
Safe for invertebrates and weaker fish
Pros: Safe for weaker fish, invertebrates. Can be used with biofiltration. Hard to overdose.
Cons: Takes longer to reduce white spot population. Generally takes two bottles.
I have been an avid aquarist for 50+ years and have dealt with Ich forever! There are several different species of Ich and some take up to 6 weeks to rid out of your aquarium. To me, it seems that purchasing livestock in the Spring always brings more parasites and species that survive longer. Love Kordon's Ich attack bc it takes work to overdose, is safe for weaker fish, safe for invertebrates, does not stain and can be used with biological filtration keeping O2 levels higher. My Cherry Shrimp continue to reproduce throughout treatment even! Farlowella and Oto Cats unaffected. I also recommend a UV sterilizer which will shorten attack time and prevent reinfection.

No, I would not recommend this.
Waste of time and money
I bought a gallon to treat ich and have been using it for over a month still see signs of Ich every 7 days or so. None of the fish have died however. I have a feeling once I stop using this product all the fish will succumb to the disease.

Kordon Ich Attach is supposed to be an Ich treatment that you can use in your tank without removing the fish and quarantining them. I attempted to use this in a 150 gallon tank for the recommended time description on the bottle. Invertebrates seemed unaffected during treatment and all shrimp, linkia and crabs survived. Unfortunately, the product did not sure the Ich that was infesting the fish and they had to be removed and quarantined anyway. I've been using Kordon Ich treatment products since 2001, but this one doesn't cut it.
