New Life Spectrum Hex Shield is a Medicated food that treats intestinal parasites such as those that cause Hexamita and marine velvet disease (oodiniosis). Fish and Biofilter Safe with a highly palatable taste that encourages fish to eat the formula. For both marine and freshwater marine aquarium fish.
Hexamita is an infection of the fish’s intestines by flagellated protozoa, and likewise a common cause of aquarium deaths. Common treatments like copper sulfate, while effective against Ich, are also highly toxic, stressful to fish, and has a narrow safety margin. Therefore, an effective but ‘fish-safe’ treatment and outbreak prevention is a game-changer for the hobby.
