Good for ich in reef Review by Michael
Value Quality Price
I got two pyramid butterfly fish with ich,(not from J&L) yes I quarantined them and they showed no signs on arrival. About two weeks after being put in a 213 gallon tank they showed a parasite infection on fins, ich? I decided to treat whole tank for three weeks. Used carbon after. Six months later all is well. Didn't hurt my macro algaes or the coralline or anything else I could see. Good product. Fish are fat and growing. (Posted on 12/2/2015)
