Marine Ich is usually associated with environmental triggers like a change in water temperature, high levels of ammonia or low levels of pH. Signs of Ich can be loss of appetite, increased mucous layer and trouble breathing. When using Ich-X SW you will need to set up a quarantine tank with proper filtration, water movement, temperature monitoring, and top off since most of the time it can take up to 8 weeks to fully implement a type of treatment from start to finish.


1. Always treat in a separate quarantine/treatment tank.

2. Remove activated carbon from filters and clean or replace mechanical filtration media. 

3. Make at least 20% water change before each addition of Ich-X SW

4. Repeat treatments at least every 24 hours, but no more often than every 8 hours, depending upon the course of the disease (refer to the Ich-X SW Product Data Sheet.) Treatment should continue for 3 days beyond the visible signs of the disease.
