- When should I use API FUNGUS CURE™ fish remedy?
If your fish is exhibiting signs of a fungal infection, treat with API FUNGUS CURE fish remedy. Symptoms of a fungal infection include body slime, fin & trail rot, and eye and mouth fungus (cottony or white patches on fish). Fish that are already sick or injured are highly susceptible to fungal infections in dirty aquariums. API FUNGUS CURE fish remedy controls the spread of infection and works within 48 hours to clear up symptoms.
- Should API FUNGUS CURE™ fish remedy only be used to treat fungal infections?
API FUNGUS CURE fish remedy works best when used to treat fungal infections, but can also be used to treat secondary bacterial infections. However, we recommend that you use API MELAFIX™ fish remedy or API E.M. ERYTHROMYCIN™ fish remedy to treat bacterial infections most effectively.
- Do I need to remove my carbon or filter cartridge from the aquarium before dosing my tank with API FUNGUS CURE™ fish remedy?
Products that are designed to remove things from your aquarium, such as filter media, will also remove dosed fish remedy from your tank. For best results from fish remedy, remove your filtration media as you dose.
- Should I keep the carbon cartridge out of the filter until treatment with API FUNGUS CURE fish remedy is finished, or should I only take it out for a few minutes before/after treating the water?
It’s recommended that you leave the carbon or carbon-containing filter cartridge out of the filter for the entire duration of treatment, removing it directly prior to the first dose of treatment. Products that are designed to remove things from your aquarium, such as carbon, will remove the dose of fish remedy from your tank if it is left within the filter or replaced before the end of treatment.
