Malachite green is a drug used to treat aquarium fish. With it, you save your pets from ringworm, fin rot, invasive diseases that can be caused by protozoan parasites.
The malachite green drug is used only for adult fish of the following species: swordtails, guppies, mollienesia, petsilia, gourami, beachferi, barbusses, heteroclitus, arapirang nanostomuses, heteromorphous rassori, veils and tailings. Treatment of aquarium fish of other species, especially those that do not have scales, must be carried out with other preparations.
Or reduce the dose at least twice.
The drug is sold in bottles of 50 ml. The content of the active substance is 10 mg.
One bottle is designed for 100 liters of water. From this it follows that for each liter you will need to take 5 ml of solution.
It is convenient to measure off with a cap from a bottle that holds exactly such volume.
Before you begin treatment, sick fish must be separated from the healthy and transplanted into another aquarium. Thus, only the fish in quarantine are subject to processing. The procedure is carried out four times a day with a break of five hours.
The first two days, the solutions are prepared at the rate of 5 ml of the drug per 2 liters of water. In the following, third and fourth days, the solution is prepared a little differently: 1.5 lire of water is taken for 5 ml of the preparation. It should be noted that every day it is necessary to make a new solution.
So that the malachite greens do not harm the fish, it is necessary to create appropriate conditions in the tank. Aeration should be provided, the water temperature is + 24-25º C.
If the treatment of fish is carried out in the general aquarium, then Malachite Green should be used together with copper sulfate, in a ratio of 5 ml: 5 drops. This amount is enough for 10 liters of water.
The finished product, the amount of which is calculated on the volume of water in the aquarium, must be diluted with fresh water up to 250 ml. To do this, the water must be allowed to settle for 24 hours.
When the water with the solution is ready, it is divided into three equal parts and poured into the aquarium at intervals of 30 minutes. At the same time it is necessary to stir the water slowly. In no case can not be poured into the water the entire solution.
This can lead to poisoning of the fish.
During the treatment and processing of the aquarium should monitor the temperature of the water. It should be no more than 28º C. In addition, you must get a biofilter, which can significantly reduce the concentration of the drug in water.
The above doses of the drug solution are introduced into the water every 7 days. The processing process can take about a month or more. During this time, most likely, there will be a need for water replacement and cleaning.
In this case, after completing this procedure, the concentration of the solution should be restored.
It is worth noting that the means malachite green refers to sustainable dyes. The color of the water may persist for a long time. In order to speed up water purification after the end of treatment, activated carbon biofilters are used.
They are able to quickly and quickly make the water in the aquarium clear and clean.
