Frequently asked questions
Why do you need to dose twice?
Dosing is kinder on fish –
2 step dosing acclimates fish for higher active dose rate. Dose on day 1 and again on day 4. Some parts of illness lifecycles cannot be killed so active ingredients need to be high for a longer period to attack these parts when the vulnerable part comes around. White spot is a great example of this.
How long do I need to wait before I can treat again?
You can repeat the dose, or treat the pond with an alternative treatment 7 days after the last dose has finished, following a 20% water change.
Do I need to switch of my UV?
Yes, the UV will weaken the strength of the treatment and make it less effective
Are eaMedications safe to use with Sturgeon, Tench or Orfe?
Should I add extra aeration?
Yes, always aerate the pond or treatment bath during use.
Can I mix medications?
Only Formaldehyde and Malachite can be used together, wait 7 days after the final dose, and do a 20% water change before re-dosing, or treating with an alternative medication.
