Use for diseases caused by Ichthyophthirius (Ich), Chilodonella, Costia, Oodinium, Trichodina and fungal infections
Microbe-Lift/BSDT is the pre- eminent broad spectrum malachite green and formalin treatment. It is formulated differently than any other malachite green and formalin mix.
Malachite green and formalin are two drugs that are more effective and less toxic in combination than when used individually. This is the definition of synergism. What makes Microbe-Lift/BSDT the preeminent product in this field is the fact that it is formulated with malachite green chloride, instead of the more toxic oxalate salt. As with any malachite green and formalin treatment, do NOT use with other medications.
Microbe-Lift/BSDT is the safest and most effective treatment for the control of diseases caused by Ichthyophthirius (Ich), Costia, Trichodina, Chilodonella, Oodinium and fungal infections.
Microbe-Lift/BSDT is the ONLY malachite green and formalin treatment that can be used in water temperatures as low as 50° F, thus allowing you to treat in early spring and late fall.
Directions for Use: Add 3.5 fl.oz (100 mL) for every 1,000 gallons of water to be treated. As with all disease treatments an initial partial water change of at least 25% must be made; a nearly total water change (>90%) will greatly improve the effectiveness. Remove all carbon filtration just before adding Microbe-Lift BSDT, and replace the carbon at the conclusion of the treatment. Treatment may be repeated daily following at least a 25% water change. The treatment may be repeated every 8 to 12 hours depending upon the response of the fishes to the treatment. Do NOT bypass your bio-filters, allowing a more comprehensive treatment of the entire pond system. This bottle treats up to 9,140 gallons.
