ParaGuard 100 ml
Used for Ich
I treated my 30 gallon tank with this size bottle (3 cap fulls for 7 nights) to treat my tank for Ich. I had a couple mollies with the parasite and treated the tank after they fell off the fish. I went with Paraguard as it was recommended safe for cories. I also have mountain minnows and didn't want to increase the temp more than my 76 setting. No other fish got sick during treatment. The meds also helped with the finrot on a few mollies. The blue medication does not discolor water or tank. Bottle directions only mentions amount to dose, but does not give you directions for length of time. I had to ask on a forum for suggestions.
My only complaint is the bottle cap quality. It may have been mine only, not sure. But it leaks the medication. The box interior it shipped in was all blue. Every time I closed the bottle after treating It would leak the medication from the cap. Just messy, take caution and keep napkins around bottle when dosing.

CAN BE USED ON LOACHES
I recently got some Dojo/Weather Loaches that arrived with ick. I started with half does every 24 hours to make sure they could tolerate it and then increased the dosage to half dose every 12 hours. They all did very well and came through QT fine with a 21 day treatment. The QT tank also has a few pond and Nerite snails that seemed to do just fine. I have some Anubias, moss, and Java Fern in the tank also and no die off. I am now using this on some new Loaches as a prophylactic treatment. I wound up having to purchase a 2L jug from another site because this tiny bottle doesn't last long with 2 QT tanks going and for the length of time I am using it.

As advertised, helped out one of my older fish, actually saved him, I think. One comment: The package says it won't hurt things in the tank, but my salt mushrooms (invertebrates) *really* didn't like the medicine... took them almost a week to recover, in the mean time they were shriveled and awful looking. The *did* recover though, and I can definitely recommend the product.

In my opinion, Paraguard, from Seachem, is one of the most frendly use product you can find today for your aquarium.Your fish can tolerate for a long period of time without any stress. This product will not change the water color and the ph will remain stable as well. The product has the most convenient fitures: You dont have to remove the carbon filetr pad whille in use, you can do a dip to your fish whitout any risk and the best of all is that this product is 100% safe to your filter bacteria bed and your plants.Once you started to use you can see the results in 24 hr. Im sure you' re goint to love. Definitely, i would recomend this product to any body.
