Composition of active ingredients μg per ml: Brilliant Green 48, 4,4′-BenzyIiden-Bis(n,n- Dimethylaniline) 9.6, Acriflavine Hydrochloride 4, Metanil Yellow 0.05
Areas of application: MANACIL is effective against white spot disease (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) as well as unicellular skin parasites in ornamental fish like Chilodonella, Ichthyobodo necator, Trichodina, etc.
Disease symptoms: Indications of disease caused by parasites are white spots on the skin and fins (Ich). Other above mentioned pathogens can show up as white or gray skin coverings. In general, diseased fish stop feeding, clamp their fins together, are easily startled and scratch against walls and decoration of the aquarium. It is important to treat the fish as quickly as possible when the above mentioned symptoms are spotted so that any further weakening of the animals by the parasites is prevented. If possible, a microscopic examination should be performed to confirm the diagnosis.
Precautionary measures: Pay attention to the water quality in your aquarium and reduce the organic pollution of the aquarium water from biological and chemical by-products by changing the water regularly. Very dirty filters should be cleaned before treatment, always keep the aquarium filter running during treatment! As with all treatments, the fish must be monitored regularly and carefully during the course of treatment in order for treatment to be broken off by a major water change should complications arise deriving from the specific set-up of the user or errors in use, which cannot be predicted.
Interaction with other supplements and other forms of interaction: MANACIL should not be used in combination with other supplements. If your fish have been treated with another supplement beforehand then a major water change must be undertaken before treatment. During treatment, UV lamps must always be turned off and oxidators removed (hydrogen peroxide). Whilst treating the aquarium with MANACIL no active filter agents (e.g.: activated carbon, phosphate remover, etc.) may be used in the filter in order to prevent reactions with bonded contaminants. Ion-exchangers (e.g. for removing nitrates, etc.) must be removed from the water circulation system of the aquarium during treatment with MANACIL.
Dosage and application: During treatment, the aquarium’s filter must be switched on and a good circulation of the water in the tank must be ensured so that the supplement can be optimally distributed throughout the aquarium.
It is important that you give the right dose of MANACIL, to do this you need to know the precise size of your aquarium. For a rectangular tank the following applies:
height(cm) x width(cm) x depth(cm) = litre 1000
If your aquarium is of a special design (e.g. polygon, domed panes of glass, stones reduce the volume, etc.), find out the cubic capacity of your aquarium from the manufacturer.
Use the measuring cup enclosed in the MANACIL pack and distribute the supplement well by stirring on the surface.
1st day 1 ml to 40 litres aquarium water 3th day 1 ml to 40 litres aquarium water
In severe cases of a persistent parasite infestation at the 5th day 1 ml to 40 litres aquarium water could be added.
