NT Labs Marine Anti Parasite is a copper based treatment for the control and elimination of parasites such as Oodinium (Coral Disease) and Cryptocaryon (Marine White Spot) in marine aquariums. Is not suitable for use with invertebrates. Ideal for use in a hospital aquarium.
When to use?
White, sugar grain-sized spots covering the body indicate marine white spot (Cryptocaryon), while finer white spots are symptoms of marine velvet (Oodinium). Both are protozoan parasite diseases and may cause the fish to rub themselves against rocks or other aquarium décor.
Anti-Parasite uses the tried-and-tested method of chelated copper therapy, boosted by the power of formalin to rapidly control these dangerous parasites. Anti-Parasite is a great choice for fish-only systems or hospital aquariums.
