For treatment of  Ich disease conditions in pond fish. Liquid Ich-X is a ready-to-use, liquid concentrate that was developed to offer an effective way to treat Ich with a less toxic form of malachite green. For best results follow directions, treating fish with Ich is best accomplished by using a quarantine bath method.

Key Benefits

  • Treats Ich
  • Treats Cryptocaryonaisis
  • Treats Trichodiniasis
  • Treats Velvet (Gold Dust)
  • Treats Saprolegniasis
  • Highly Effective
  • Uses A Less Harsh Form Of Malachite Green
  • Excellent When Used after PraziPro (as a separate treatment)

To treat "ich" disease (ichthyophthiriasis) of freshwater fishes and "marine ich" disease (cryptocaryonaisis) of marine fishes, add one (1) teaspoon (~5 mL) of Ich-X to 10 gallons of aquarium water.

For Best Results:

  1. Always treat in a separate quarantine/treatment tank
  2. Remove activated carbon from filters and clean or replace mechanical filtration media (do not stop filtration!)
  3. Make at least 1/3 water change before each addition of Ich-X (use Ultimate to condition new water (4) repeat treatments at least every 24 hours, but no more often than every 8 hours, depending upon the course of the disease (refer to the Ich-X Product Data Sheet.


Ingredients: water, formaldehyde (<5%), methanol (<2%), malachite green chloride (<0.1%)

Caution: Do not use Ich-X with any other medications. Do not use with sulfinate-, or sulfoxylate-base water conditioners. Ich-X may permanently stain silicone tanks and sealants, rocks, concrete, plastic objects, clothing, laminate counter tops, floors, furniture and carpeting. Ich-X may be harmful to some invertebrates (e.g. filter feeders); use caution and observe carefully when treating aquariums with invertebrates. Immediate 50% or larger, water changes (using Ultimate to treat the replacement water) should be performed if stress is observed amoung treated animals.


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.
