Keeping your fish healthy is a very important factor of fish keeping. The water needs to be kept maintained as well as the fish themselves. Knowing which diseases and infections fish are susceptible to and knowing how to treat them is important. API manufacture treatments to combat various illnesses.

Treating ICK (White Spot)

“Ick” is one of the most common fish diseases. It is caused by a parasite (“Ichthyophthirius”) that burrows into the gill and skin tissue of fish.

“Ick” is highly contagious and should be treated as soon as symptoms are observed.

Symptoms include:

  • Laboured breathing
  • Rapid darting around the aquarium
  • Scratching against objects
  • White spots on fins, body and eyes

Super Ick Cure works fast to kill the “Ick” parasite, usually within 24 hours and helps heal the fish’s natural slime coat which is damaged by the parasite.

It also helps prevent secondary infection and also treats other external parasites including Trichodina, Chilodonella, and Oodinium (velvet).
