I just got this for free from petco, and it doesn't actually have listed ingredients! That frightens me a bit, so I don't want to use it until I can figure out how safe and effective it is.

It says it treats:
Ich
Velvet
Saprolegniasis
Trichodiniasis

It says it contains:
A proprietary blend of natural herbs in an aqueous solution

.. But no ingredients of what said blend contains :/ !

It also lists that it is not to be used with sulfinate, or sulfoxyalte-based water conditioners, and that it COULD be harmful to inverts, so I'm assuming that means there is copper in it..?

It's bothersome, but I got it for free, so I was just wondering if there was any worth to it at all.

Has anyone seen an indepth look at it, or used it themselves? I tried to google it, but I can't seem to find ANY reviews. Any help would be greatly appreciated :).

Probbaly some sort of Tea Tree Oil, Aloe and some other crap thrown in. Whether it works, I don't know. I think of the "skin tag herbal" remover sold on TV right now, approved by the Homeopathic Pharmacopia Convention of America, whatever the hell that is. lol.

Yeah, it's why I feel a bit... leery about it, haha.

I think for now I'll just stick to warm water and salt . It's never failed me yet! Haha.

Yup, salt + a heater in a small tank, plastic container, whatever has cured ich like 99.99% of the time for me as well. It works, it's cheap and like you said, never seems to fail.

Sounds like rebranded Ich Attack (which does work). Read their info. It's either a direct plagiarism or highly coincidental.
I tried the Kordon product last year about this time on some Cherry Barbs I bought that had the worst kind of ICK. The kind you don't see in the store and see once you get the fish home. :icon_roll

I do use a Q-Tank, bare with a seasoned HOB, heater. I dosed full strength 2Xs a day for 3 days, then full dose 1X for another 4 days, 30% Water Change. Then 1/2 dose 1x a day for a week. 30% W/C (I normally do 30% a week on the Q-Tank anyway.

I did loose one of the fish, the one the most infected. I still have those fish today.

Hmm, it does sound pretty damn similar; Thanks for the link/info!


I guess it's the petco version of super markets making the bagged cereal-- it's the same darn thing, except they changed the name and it's cheaper, ha.

I may or may not try it, still on the fence.
