A seven-minute, external disinfectant bath that really clears Aeromonas sores, mouthrot, and finrot!
What It Is:
As good as injections! Tricide Neo is a bath treatment made with a convenient packet of crystals. The fish should NOT be dipped for more than five to seven minutes. That's FAST!
What It's Good At:
Tricide Neo is used to treat koi BODY SORES, MOUTH ROT and FINROT. Generalized 'pink-skin' caused by bacterial infections is also treated. Any superficial bacterial infection can be treated with Tricide Neo and to a limited extent, the type of bacteria isn't important because of this compounds mode of action.
About five years ago, the Emerging Diseases Research Group at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine began working on treatments for resistant bacteria, and developed an agent that makes otherwise resistant bacteria susceptible to safer and older antibiotics. The potentiator that has proven effective against the "super" bugs that infect human burns is also effective against the common bacteria associated with topical infections in ornamental koi and goldfish.
|WOW! A 3 to 7 minute dip that does the work of an injection. Fights bacterial ulcers, mouthrot and finrot FAST!|
It's simple. Get a gallon of distilled water. Empty the 1 gallon packet into the gallon jug. Mix well. First, move the fish that needs to be dipped into a well-aerated vat of dechlorinated tap water of the same pH and temperature.
This 'initial rinse' removes excess slime and debris which might contaminate the Tricide Neo� dip.
Make sure your Tricide Neo� solution is roughly the same temperature as the main pond and the rinsing vat. Simply transfer the fish into a suitably sized plastic bag and then pour enough Tricide Neo� into the bag to soak the fish and leave enough for "breathing room", Wait five minutes. Remove the fish to the rinse vat. Then remove the fish to the main pond again.
Some people mix up the solution in distilled water in a Rubbermaid sweater box and dip all the fish in this. The dip is "good" for at least 2 weeks but should be discarded if it "fouls" with Koi mucus or bodily excretions. (Your nose can tell!) (For more details)
|Easy and quick to deploy. Extremely effective. Equally effective with injections of antibiotics. Stock solution is stable for up to eighteen months!|
|Not indicated for systemic bacterial (bloodstream) infections. Not indicated for fungal infections.|
