New Life Spectrum Ick Shield is a Medicated food formulated to combat aquarium ectoparasites including those that cause Ick. Fish and Biofilter Safe with a highly palatable taste that encourages fish to eat the formula. For both marine and freshwater marine aquarium fish.
Both Marine Ich and Freshwater Ich (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) are some of the most common aquarium diseases and a leading cause of fish mortality. 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.
