Suitable for coldwater & tropical aquariums, treatment for parasites such as Trichodina, Costia & Oodinium. Previously known as Anti-Velvet & Slime.
Slime and velvet are caused by a variety of parasites which will be naturally present in small numbers on aquarium fish. The symptoms include a peppering of tiny gold specs across the body and/with a coating of excess mucus - slime - on the skin. In a healthy tank, the fish’s immune system will cope with these parasites however fish stress (mostly caused by bad water quality) can lead to major outbreaks of parasites. Anti-Parasite is a single dose treatment to eradicate these protozoan parasites.

Nearly all the disease treatments available to fishkeepers have organic active ingredients (even those which claim to contain no chemicals). These organic chemicals are removed by adsorbent filter media such as carbon and zeolite, so remove these before adding a treatment to ensure the treatment is not removed before it has time to be effective. As a general rule of thumb, the filter mediums can be returned to the filter 7 days after the final dose of treatment has been added, but be sure to consult the instructions to see if the product requires more or less time to work.
It is also worth turning all UV systems off, increasing aeration and monitoring feeding closely don't overfeed if the fish are not wanting to eat as this can lead to further problems.
