Liquid CyroPro™ is a ready-to-use, liquid concentrate that was developed to offer an effective way to control conditions caused by anchor worm and fish lice in ponds, freshwater and marine aquariums. The concentrated liquid is extremely safe and super effective, providing rapid control pf potential ailments caused by anchor worm or fish lice without negatively impacting the existing biological filtration.
Directions For Use
For treatment of cyromazine-susceptible disease conditions in ponds.
As A Bath: For the control of disease conditions of fishes caused by fish lice and anchor worm. Start with new water or a large water change (minimum 25% – more is better) using ULTIMATE® (or a combination of Liquid Buffered ClorAm-X® and Stress-X™) to remove ammonia, chlorine and chloramines.
Next remove carbon filtration, uv sterilization and stop form-fractionation (“protein skimming”) to prevent the removal of the CyroPro™ ingredients. Do not stop other filtration.
Shake CyroPro™ vigorously and add at the rate of one (1) teaspoonful ~ 5 mL per 50 gallons ~ 189 L of water (1 fl. oz. ~ 29.5 mL per 300 gallons ~ 1,135 L). Distribute CyroPro™ around the perimeter of the pond or aquarium to insure rapid and complete mixing. Adding CyroPro™ via the filter where agitation occurs works well.
Repeat the treatment regimen every seven (7) days for a minimum of twenty-one (21) uninterrupted days or a complete restart is required. A water change is required before each retreatment or addition of CyroPro™ to refresh dissolved oxygen levels, remove pollutants and nutrients for disease – causing organisms and to reduce the population of water-borne pathogens. Fresh activated carbon can be returned to the filter and all other functions can be restarted after the final treatment period.
Recommendations: Use Liquid CyroPro™ any time unwanted parasites are noticed.
Contraindications: CyroPro™ liquid is safe for use on all fishes, reptiles, (e.g. turtles) amphibians, (e.g. tadpoles and frogs) and mollusks (e.g. snails) in ornamental ponds or aquariums. It must not be used where crayfishes or other crustaceans are being cultured.
Anchor Worms, also called Lernea resembles brown or greenish threads on the body, fins,or tail of koi and goldfish. These parasites are about 1/8 to 1/4 inch in length.
Unlike some other parasites that affect fish, Anchor Worms do not rely on their suppression of the immune system to strike. If tAnchor Worms are present in your system or pond, they will proliferate unless treated.
The Anchor Worm parasites are veritable crustaceans that have both free-living as well as parasitic life stages.
These parasites can cause irritations and secondary infections in the skin and muscle where the parasite is attached, although mortality is not commonly associated with the presence of the parasites.
Freshwater lice and those fish infested with them do not harm people, and normally these lice do little harm to their fish hosts. However, the wounds they make can allow the introduction of diseases and fungus that may cause fish to die.
They live on the skin of many species of fish and feed on their blood. Freshwater lice are convex-shaped, grow to about 1cm in size and resemble a blob of jelly. Under closer inspection two black eye ‘spots’ can be seen.
Freshwater lice lay eggs that survive through the winter to hatch out in spring, and can produce several broods in a single year. Several hundred lice can be found on an individual fish.
