Treat bacterial and fungal infections AND accelerate healing. Microbe-Lift Artemiss is a unique herbal expellant that provides safe control of bacterial and fungal infections. It is effective against fin and tail rot, ulcers, bulging eyes (exophthalmia), milky skin, raised scales, mouth rot, fungus and dropsy. This natural herbal treatment also stimulates the accelerated regeneration of damaged tissue so open wounds and ulcers sensitive to reinfection heal faster. When used as directed, Artemiss is safe for all saltwater, freshwater, and brackish water aquarium fish. Also reef-safe and safe for plants. Microbe-Lift Artemiss is also great when acclimating fish to a new environment. 16 oz treats 236 gallons for 10 days.
Why use Microbe-Lift Artemiss?
Traditional aquarium medications commonly rely on biocides to kill pathogenic bacteria. Though effective, these harsh chemicals often affect non-target organisms including beneficial nitrifying bacteria. Nontoxic and biodegradable Artemiss a does not affect nitrifying bacteria.
Directions for Use
Shake thoroughly prior to use. Remove any carbon and/or zeolite from filters. Keep biological filters operational.
Add 1ml of Microbe-Lift Artemiss per five gallons daily for ten days OR add 1 teaspoon per 25 gallons daily for ten days. In severe cases, a longer treatment period may be required until visible results are achieved.
Dosage (for New Introduction)
When adding new fish to a quarantine tank or aquarium, alternate adding Microbe-Lift Herbtana and Microbe-Lift Artemiss at the standard dosage, 12 hours apart until two doses of each product have been added. This will act as an immune system stimulant and destressant.
Microbe-Lift Artemiss is safe for all aquatic life. It is a great aide to use when acclimating fish to a new environment. Microbe-Lift Artemiss has a shelf life of two years provided it is kept at room temperature and stored in its original bottle. Do not allow to freeze.
Microbe-Lift Artemiss is a unique, herbal, immune-enhancing stimulant which reduces bacterial and fungal infections in fish showing symptoms such as: Fin and tail rot, ulcers, bulging eyes (exophthalmia), milky skin, raised scales, mouth rot/fungus and dropsy (ascites). Microbe-Lift Artemiss will help boost the immune system of the fish with no risk of building up future resistance as can occur when antibiotic sare used.
Microbe-Lift Artemiss will help to drive pathogenic bacteria off the fish and, without a host, ultimately result in the death of the bacteria. Microbe-Lift Artemiss is effective at reducing bacterial infections as well as ulcers and wounds that often occur on goldfish and koi. Regular antibiotics may kill non-resistant bacteria but will not heal ulcers and will leave an open wound or ulcers sensitive to re-infection. Even with deep ulcers (and in a surprisingly short time span), Microbe-Lift Artemiss additionally stimulates and accelerates regeneration of damaged tissue until no trace of the wound remains. Therefore, even if an antibiotic treatment is used, you should also use Microbe-Lift Artemiss to minimize reinfection.
Benefits of Ecological Laboratories Microbe-Lift Herbtana and Microbe-Lift Artemiss
Does not result in resistance.
When used as directed they are safe for all salt, fresh, and brackish water fish. Also reef-safe and safe for plants.
Does not affect nitrifying bacteria (biofilter bacteria).
Does not color the water or stain or affect silicone sealing.
No harmful residues. Microbe-Lift Herbtana and Microbe-Lift Artemiss are completely biodegradable.
More effective than home remedies.
Note: In most cases, aquarium fish diseases are caused by poor living conditions such as overcrowding, poor water quality or an improper biotope. To prevent reoccurrence, examine the underlying cause of the problem. Quarantine new fish for at least four weeks. A single dose of Artemiss will help the fish quickly acclimate to its new environment.
When the water quality is poor, the immune system of the fish cannot be enhanced by Microbe-Lift Herbtana or Microbe-Lift Artemiss. Ammonia and nitrite should not be above 0.4ppm and the pH must be on a level suitable for the particular species of fish.
Do not use with any other medications or treatments.
Do not use with any algaecides or copper-based products.
Remove any activated carbon in your system as carbon will filter out the natural expellants.
