ProForm-C™ is a concentrated formulation of formalin and malachite green. It is based upon the famous Leteux-Meyer formulation, published in 1973, for treating ichthyphthiriasis ("ich") on scaleless catfishes. Leteux and Meyer found that the formulation they developed was not only more effective in treating this ubiquitous disease, but it was less toxic to the treated fishes than either drug used separately. This is the definition of synergism. AquaScience Research Group, Inc., improved upon the Leteux-Meyer formulation by utilizing malachite green chloride instead of the commonly used malachite green oxalate. The chloride form is less toxic than the oxalate form.

ProForm-C™ is also useful in the treatment of other protozoan caused diseases of fishes as well as fungal infections.

Available in Two Sizes:

32 Ounces (Treats 3,200 gallons three times)
1 Gallon Jug (Treats 12,800 gallons three times)

The benefits of ProForm-C

  • The safest and most effective treatment for the control of diseases caused by Ichthyophthirius (ich), Costia, Trichodina, Chilodonella, Oodinium and fungal infections.
  • The ONLY MG&F treatment that can be used in water temperatures as low as 50 degrees (F), thus allowing you to treat in early Spring and late Fall. All other MG&F treatments can NOT be used below 62 degrees (F)
  • Treatment is DAILY. Most other MG&F treatments are dosed once every three days. Dosing daily allows you to complete the treatment in 3 days instead of 9 days.
  • You do NOT need to bypass your bio-filters which allows a more comprehensive treatment of the entire pond system.
  • Less toxic to koi and goldfish than any other MG&F product on the market
  • Available in quarts (treats a 3,200 gallon system three times) and gallons (treats a 12,800 gallon system three times).



The following is a brief summary of the clinical signs often associated with "ich"; it is intended only as an aid for the beginning aquarist, and is not to be considered a definitive diagnostic key. It is important that the aquarist consult appropriate references for more specific information regarding aquarium fish diseases. Where possible, skin scrapes and/or gill smears should be made and examined by a qualified aquarium fish disease diagnostician (NOTE: few veterinarians are either qualified or interested in diagnosing aquarium fish diseases).

The signs of "ich" in fishes is usually evident by the appearance and persistence of numerous, small (but visible) white spots on the fishes' skin, scales, eyes and fins. The disease is often called "white spot disease". These spots are known as cysts. It must be understood that the cysts are usually found on the gills of the diseased fishes. The only outward sign of the involvement of the fishes' gills is labored respiration that is often accompanied by a drastic darkening or lightening of the fishes overall coloration. Fishes with "ich", where the white spots are not yet visible on the body will usually exhibit lethargy and repeated "flashing", or scratching and scraping, against sides or bottom or against objects in the pond.
