This NT Labs Acriflavin is a treatment for Bacterial Ailments. - All ponds will contain billions of minute bacteria.

There are the some helpful species of bacteria that breakdown the toxic fish waste in the biological filter system, and convert it into nitrate, which is then taken up by the plants.

However, there are also other bacteria which live in the pond, that are opportunistic invaders of stressed and wounded fish.

These bacteria, which include the species Pseudomonas and Aeromonas will infect any cut or abrasion of the surface of the fish, these can also invade the host across the gut wall during gastrointestinal problems.

NT Labs Acriflavin once added to the pond will reduce the numbers of these opportunistic bacteria in the pond, thus lowering not only the chance of infection, but also the intensity of disease in already infected ponds.

Dosage Rate:

Add 10 ml of Acriflavin to every 80 gallons (363 L) of pond water.

A single dose is normally sufficient - If not then wait at least 10 days before retreating.

Acriflavin is ideal to use in hospital or quarantine tanks,

Its also unwise to constantly add the treatment to the pond when the fish are healthy. This is because a some background level of bacteria is essential for healthy fish to maintain their immune system.

  • 2.5 litres treats 20000 gals ( 90920)
