Ruby Reef Kick-Ich 1 L Information

Prevent the spread of the dreadful Whitespot disease in your fish. Treat your fish livestock with the Ruby Reef Kick-Ich from Pet Store. This anti-ich formula has been formulated by high caliber fish experts that have a higher level of understanding in fish diseases, as well as those who had thoroughly tested solutions to safely but effectively cure them.

The Ruby Reef Kick-Ich effectively controls the growth of ich because it can destroy it at the various stages of its life cycle. This renders their reproductive efforts futile, thus, preventing their re-growth.

Available in an easy-to-use, one-liter bottle, the Ruby Reef Kick-Ich is very economical. Every liter of the formula can treat up to 75 gallons of aquarium water, and it will remain effective for two weeks. The product is also long lasting, and it can be stored at normal room temperature.

Comments: OOPS didn’t quarantine ph too low added new equipment now your fish are stressed. Ich pops up …. Now what Ok let’s look @ ph water parameters and see if we have a problem. Now lets go to War I like to start with a 50% water Change suck as many Theronts out as we hope we can. Feed the Fish the best foods you can. Tanks I feed seaweed from asian market, Freesh as possible. I like to bump up the temperature to as high as I can cringe to. This will speed up the life cycle. Yes you may kill of a few snails. Look we will only do it for as week. I set it for 79. Ok here is where I use the ruby reef kick ich. I double the dose and add 3 ounces per day because I don’t turn of skimmer. Make sure to turn off UV, Ozone and remove Carbon filters. Usually within 5 days I will see a huge improvement in the fish. After I see the last visible sign of ich on a fish I continue for 2 weeks so usually it is a 3 week to 4 week dose. Ruby reef kick ich does not kill ich it stops them from being able to attach to the fish. They starve to death. So if you leave some alive they will come back. Now you may ask why do I have this regiment and experience with ich. I am a gluten for punishment and have many saltwater tanks up and running. For my fish only tanks I do hypo salinity treatments and it works well. But for the reef tanks I have. Not feasible to rip them apart. Constructer goby to 6 line wrasse, just not gonna be easy. I hope you find this helpful. I always keep some on hand and remember to keep out of light it will keep for a long time. Store in a dark and cool spot

Comments: This company is one of the very best on customer service. Sent them an e-mail late Saturday. Confused the label on the bottle said nothing about turning off the U/V if you had one. But on their site they say to turn it off? Well Don replied very late and about 4 replies back and fourth until 7:30pm he answered all. His devotion to their products and reef keeping was very apparent and could not of been luckier to talk with him. Their the real deal. A+++

Comments: I've used this a good many times over the years and it has worked great each time... until now. I had a large saltwater tank with a case of ich/whitesopt and the 7 fish actually got much WORSE in the middle of the 13 day treatment. All of them died before the end of the treatment. I don't know if I will try it again or not.

Comments: Ive only used this product for three days but i have to say it works. No affect on coral and its reef safe. Loved it. Its better if you QT your fish and leave tank fallow for a month because if not, then the icy would just come back. its a parasite. or QT for a week, then return to the DT (display tank) while still treating the display.

Comments: After giving my flame angel a freshwater bath, the ick came back after 2 weeks. So, I decided to try Kick-Ich this time. At day 7 of the treatment, all the ick disappeared from my flame angel. He had about 6 or 7 spots on him. I ran my protein skimmer for 2 hours before each dosing (just to clean the water a bit, so as to not stress the fish further). At day 15, I did a 20% water change, cleaned everything from the sump to the tank and turned the skimmer back on. None of my inverts or fish were harmed. I would definitely use this again.

Comments: I know there is controversy about the efficacy of this product, but after having an Ich outbreak in my main tank, I removed and quarantined all the fish for six weeks and treated the fish with copper-safe, I used Kick-Ich in the main tank "just in case" before adding back any of the fish, note that it is a 13 day treatment so I started it two weeks before returning the fish. It did not harm any of the corals, or any of the inverts and no ich return. If I ever had another outbreak again I would try this before removing all the fish again.

Comments: I tried this treatment on my tank because I didn't have a large enough QT for all of my fish to fit in. I had a huge Ich break-out. I purchased this knowing that it was safe for reefs and inverts. Well it is, but I lost all but one fish. I lost an Atlantic blue tang, a yellow tang, a maroon clown, algae blenny, mystery wrasse. I only had ich on the tangs and the algae blenny. After the first treatment, the algea blenny died. The next treatment the yellow tang and maroon clown died. The following treatment the atlantic blue and wrasse died. I still have one fish and all my shrimp, hermit crabs, emerald crabs and snails... NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
