Marine-Aid FAQs

What diseases specifically does Marine-Aid treat?

Marine-Aid is used for the treatment of a wide range of protozoan and bacterial infections including Costia, Chilodonella, Cryptocaryon, Amyloodinium, Trichodina, columnaris, fin rot, and mouth fungus as well as superficial skin infections and open wounds. 

What visible symptoms would indicate the need for treatment with Marine-Aid?

Signs of treatable diseases include increased respiration, scratching on substrate or rocks, loss of normal body color, lethargic behavior, body lesions with reddish coloration, dust-like yellowish areas on body, whitish skin slime, disintegrating fins or fin edges, skin ulcers, and/or distinct white spots on body or fins.

How do I dose Marine-Aid?

Simply add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) per 10 gallons; 1 tablespoon (15 ml) per 30 gallons. Treat daily with a 25% to 50% water change. Adjust dosage to match changed water. Remove carbon during treatment.

Can Marine-Aid be used with other products or medications in the aquarium?

We recommend removing all absorbent filtration materials such as carbon from your system while treating with Marine-Aid. Replace these materials after treatment.  

Marine-Aid can be used along with antibiotics in the aquarium, but should not be used with other medications.

Is Marine-Aid safe for reef aquariums?

No. Marine-Aid is not a reef-safe treatment. If you are unable to remove infected fish from the aquarium you should use one of our reef-safe products such as Aqua Pro-Cure.

In what sizes is Marine-Aid available?

Marine-Aid is available in 4 oz., 16 oz., and 32 oz. bottles.

Can I purchase directly from FishVet?

Unfortunately not. Our products are not sold directly to the public. If your local store does not stock these products, ask them to request them from their distributor.
