General Cure 10 packets
Tank got hit with a parasite. Probably from the introduction of a few live tank plants. Lost 20% of the fish in 2 days. The fish had swollen red bellies. Used "General Cure" as directed. Worked immediately.
Remove carbon from filter and let product run for 2 days.
I have a 120 gallon tank. So, it gets pricey to use any medication for the fish tank. But, the F&S price was 2/3 cheaper than the local pet chain store. So stock up.

It works! cured an outbreak of Ich
We recently had an outbreak of Ich - 2 of our 3 fancy guppies looked really bad and I thought we were going to lose them. I looked at the remedies that were specific to Ich and was concerned about the side effects. Our local pet store recommended this product. I had my doubts but decide to try it.
I followed the instructions to the letter, removing the carbon from the filter, added one packet, waited 48 hours and added a second. I also followed the suggestions I found elsewhere about adding aquarium salt and raising the temperature. For 3 days there wasn't any noticeable improvement, but on the 4th day there was a slight reduction in the white spots. By day 5 the spots were mostly gone and the fish seemed happier. By day 6 the spots were completely gone. I'm going to keep the temperature and salt level for a few more days just to be safe.
I am very pleased with the results now. I would definitely recommend this product.
