Prevention or treatment of fungus on fish eggs:
Method 1 (Short Term Bath):?

(a) Change the carbon in the outside filter or add an outside filter with fresh carbon to the hatchery tank. Use a high quality liquid phase activated carbon. ?

(b) Start the filter. ?

(c) Add 10 teaspoons of 2X Plus (approx. 50ml) per gallon of water. This produces 5 ppm activity of the drug. ?

(d) Allow filter to run and allow it to remove the 2X Plus solution from the water for one hour. Note: If any colour remains in the water after 1 hour, perform a partial water change of at least 25% change filter carbon and allow it to remove any additional 2X Plus Solution. ?

(e) Repeat treatment once a day prior to the hatching of the eggs. Discontinue after the eggs hatch.

Method 2 (Dip)

?(a) To a clean, non-metallic container, add 1 gallon of aged hatchery water, or water treated with AquaSafe Plus. ?

(b) Add 5 fl. oz. of 2X Plus (approx. 149 ml). This produces a concentration of 1500 ppm. ?

(c) Agitate the solution with an air-stone and adjust for a moderately strong flow of air. ?

(d) Collect eggs in a net or grasp the object on which eggs are attached and dip them for not more than 10 seconds. Immediately replace the eggs into the original hatchery tank.

Note: This is a one time treatment only. Do not repeat. The dip solution may be kept for future use. Keep container tightly capped when not in use.

Treatment for fungus or parasites on fishes

?(a) Transfer fishes to a separate quarantine tank, if possible.

?(b) Remove carbon, clean outside filter and return to use with clean mechanical filter media.

?(c) Calculate the actual volume of water to be treated, taking into consideration the displacement of water by sand and rock.

(d) Add 5ml (1 teaspoon) of 2X Plus per 10 gallons of water to the tank. This will produce a concentration of 0.05 ppm. ?

(e) Make a partial water change of at least 25% every 24 hours and re-treat. Superficial fungal infections will respond to a single treatment, while more advanced, deep seated mycosis will require additional prolonged therapy. The disappearance of the strands (fungal hyphae) from the affected areas signals a successful treatment.

?(f) Upon completion of the treatment, return fishes to the original aquarium (if moved) and add BNT's AquaSafe or AquaSafe Plus.

For use in Treatment of Freshwater and Saltwater.
