Medication for aquarium fish to counteract single-celled skin parasites.
In freshwater these include: Ichthyophthirius, Ichthyobodo (Costia),
Heteropolaria, Chilodonella, Tetrahymena, Trichodina, Glossatella. In
saltwater: Cryptocarion, Brooklynella, Uronema. Grainy white dots on the
skin, fins and gills of the fish are characteristic of white spot disease caused by Ichthyophthirius in freshwater fish.
In saltwater this disease is caused by Cryptocarion: these spots are larger, almost pure white and less numerous than in freshwater. The medication is also effective against the frequently recurring stubborn strains of Ichthyophthirius. This common mass fish death is reliably treated or prevented. Velvety and thin, blue-white skin coatings on freshwater fish indicate infection with the bean-shaped skin blemisher Costia (Ichthyobodo). A carpet-like white coating around the mouth area often occurring in gourami after injury or other preinfection, is caused by
the bell animalcule Heteropolaria colisarum. In the case of infection with the parasites mentioned above, as well as others, the following unspecific
symptoms can also be observed: rapid breathing, rubbing on objects, sticky fins, refusal to feed, reduced movement, apathy, dark colouration, increased production of mucus.
Long-term damage may occur to corals and other invertebrates
in saltwater. Fish should therefore be treated separately in a quarantine
tank if possible. Intolerance may be shown by invertebrates in freshwater
(shrimp, crustacean etc.). They should be excluded from treatment as
a precaution. Fish without scales (loaches and catfish) and weakened
fish may react sensitively to the medication. Start with a half dose before
None known. If your fish show signs of side-effects, please
inform JBL, your vet or pharmacist.
Reactions with other medications:
An additional application of a half dose
of JBL Ektol Cristal with the first dose of Punktol ultra is beneficial. The use of water conditioners at the same time may cause Punktol ultra to be less effective. Using other medications at the same time, especially JBL Fungol, may cause unwanted and unpredictable side-effects and should therefore be avoided.
Before application any active carbon must be removed from the filter, UV
-C appliances and CO2
fertilizers switched off and, in saltwater, skimmers and ozonisers should be switched off. 50 % of the water should be changed prior to application.
Medications should generally be added in the morning and the
Dose and length of treatment:
- Ichthyophthirius (white spot in freshwater)and Cryptocarion (white spot in saltwater): 10 ml for 100 l water on 1st day. On 3rd, 5th day etc. until 15th day give a full dose.
- Costia (skin-blemisher): 10 ml for 100 l water on 1st day. On 3rd, 5th and 7th day give a full dose.
- All other parasites:10 ml for 100 l water on 1st day and on 3rd day give a full dose.
Immediately before each repeat dose, 30 50 % of the water should be
changed. A temporary increase in temperature to 30° C is beneficial to
treatment of all diseases, so long as the fish can tolerate this. In particularly severe cases of all diseases, especially stubborn strains of Ichthyophthirius, longer treatment than stated above may be necessary.
Filtering and feeding during treatment: Biologically highly active filters
which have not been cleaned for a long time may reduce effectiveness of the medication. We therefore recommend cleaning the filter slightly before use - not too thoroughly in order to retain some of the cleansing bacteria.
No food, or very little, should be given during treatment if possible. Note in the event of overdosing, interrupted or prematurely terminated
treatment: In the event of an overdose, half the water should be changed.
If a dose is omitted, this should be given as soon as possible and treatment continued as prescribed.
After treatment: Filter through active carbon (JBL Carbomec Active or Carbomec Ultra) for 24 hours after treatment in order to remove any residual traces of medication. Discard carbon afterwards. A daily dose of JBL Acclimol (in freshwater only) should then be given for one week to fortify the immune system of the fish and promote the healing of the injuries sustained from the parasites. The addition of JBL FilterStart to the filter or JBL Denitrol to the aquarium water is helpful in replacing any damaged cleansing bacteria.
