Bactocide 1

Bactocide 1 is an effective combination of compounds known to anti protozoan, fungal and
bacterial activity for use with ornamental fish. These compounds work synergistically yielding
fast and strong results against bacterial, protozoan and fungal caused diseases, while being
very gentle on the fish. The fish easily absorb Bactocide 1, making if very effective for both
external and internal diseases.
Indication of use: Effective in preventing and treating discus black disease (plague), skin
ulcer, cloudy eyes, columnaris, red sores, bacterial gill disease, fin rot, huddled fish near the
corner or back of aquarium, fish not eating with or without white stringy poop.
Method of use: Use one level measure of the included spoon (1 gram) for every 10 gallons
(40 liters) of aquarium water. Leave it for 48 hours then change 25-100% of the water and
repeat the treatment. It is preferable to mix the powder well with some aquarium water in an
external container then distribute it evenly over the water or pour it in a high flow area (ex:
pump return). Prior to the treatment, clean the filter and aquarium and maintain the filtration
and aeration. We advise to add 1g/L salt along with Bactocide 1 when used during
quarantine process for new fish.
Repeat the treatment for a total of three times. Extend the treatment up to 10 days in case of
severe infections. Do not stop the treatment on the first signs of recovery to avoid reinfection,
continue the treatment to at least six days.
Precaution: Store in a cool dry place, away from children reach. For use on ornamental fish
only, not intended for use on fish for human consumption. Bactocide will have an impact on
the bio-filter, therefore; it is preferable to use it in a hospital tank instead, except if you are
dealing with a plague then the treatment should be in the main tank for all fish with filters
running. All tools, nets and hoses should be disinfected. Well-established filters will not lose
all its capacity.
Ingredients: Usnea lichen extract, Terminalia catappa extract, Gingerols, Echinacea pupurea
extract, proprietary phytochemical compounds.
