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:

Features:

  • Completely reef-safe
  • Does not harm invertebrates
  • Does not harm nitrifying bacteria
  • Buffered to maintain physiological pH

How does Medic work? 

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.

Directions for in Tank Treatment:

  • Use 1 level scoop of medic for every 50 gallons (190 liters), twice per day
    • **Serious problems, use 3 level scoops
  • Dose once in morning and once in evening
  • Continue dosing for 10 days, and up to a maximum of 20 days
  • Note: Ozone and carbon must not be used during the treatment
    • Protein skimmers can be run as as normal
    • UV filter can be used one hour after dosing
    • The problem may seem to disappear when white specks are no longer visible on the fish. This is merely part of the natural cycle of the parasite and you must continue dosing the product for the minimum entire course (10 days) to be maximally effective
    • After treatment is complete, run granular activated carbon for 2 or 3 days

Specifications:

  • Active Ingredients: Crystallized Peroxide Salts

REVIEW
I introduced a fish that developed ich. The Polylab did not save that fish, but my Purple Tang had started to get a bit of the ich and the PolyLab put an end to that! Been safe for my corals except where the undissolved granules fall.

I have used the product for more than one round of ich in my 150 gallon tank over the past 18 - 24 months. I used several other products before a local fish store recommended I try this product. Since switching to medic, I have lost no fish to ich, each treatment has completely cleared all my fish...Read More
