View Full Version : Rid-Ich+

08/01/2008, 04:09 PM
I've purchased Rid-Ich+. In other parts of this forum, I've been struggling getting the answer I want. Basically I'm hoping you guys would be able to tell me exactly how to use this. It says 1 tsp per 10 gallons of tank water which is what I'll be using to treat a tang (if I can catch him). I would put in some pvc and a small powerhead. Is anything else needed? Or just put in 1 tsp and the fish and let him sit.

At the moment, the fish isn't eating anymore since maybe a week ago and still loaded in ich. Still active swimmer though.

Just put him in the quarantine tank with the rid-ich+ and give it a few days. If he still has heavy signs then you might want to perform a water change and dose again. I would maybe add an airstone to the quarantine. Best of luck to you.

I think we have have an airstone from a freshwater tank years and years ago. I suppose I could use it, hopefully nothing too harmful in it.

Thanks for the tip. Basically the answer I was looking for. People are telling me I need to watch freshwater PH and do freshwater dips each day etc etc... Sounded too complicated, even because it's not on the bottle.

Thanks jonsreef11! :)

Oh ya, when I put the medication into this 10 gallon tote I have, will I be able to use this tote again? I use it to mix my new saltwater for the main display. Is it able to be washed out and reused again after the treatment or not?

Thank you for your post. jonsreef11, did give you the correct information on how to dose with the Rid-Ich+. We would definitely recommend placing your tang in a quarantine tank while treating.

While mixing your medication in your tote we do believe it would be just fine to wash and reuse this tote for your salt water mixture.
