  • VETERINARY INDICATIONS

    ParaGuard™ is the only fish and filter safe aldehyde based (10% by weight) parasite control product available (for parasites on fish). Unlike highly toxic and difficult to use formalin based medications, ParaGuard™ contains no formaldehyde or methanol and will not alter pH. ParaGuard™ employs a proprietary, synergistic blend of aldehydes, malachite green, and fish protective polymers that effectively and efficiently eradicates many ectoparasites (e.g. ich, etc.) and external fungal/bacterial/viral lesions (e.g., fin rot). It is particularly useful in hospital and receiving tanks for new fish and whenever new fish are introduced to a community tank.

  • DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION

    DIRECTIONS: In the aquarium, use 10 mL (1 capful) to every 80 L (20 US gallons). Repeat daily as required as long as fish show no stress. For 1 hour dips, use 3 mL per 4 L (1 US gallon). Dips may be extended if fish show no evidence of stress.
