Fritz Mardel Maracyn OXY 4 oz. True Fungal Infection Aquarium Treatment
Fritz Aquatics Mardel Maracyn Oxy (freshwater/saltwater) Solution treats infections resulting from fungus on fish and eggs. The symptoms of these infections include clamped fins, swollen eyes, heavy or rapid breathing, patchy coloration, or any change in behavior of the fish. These infections will appear as whitish tufts of cotton-like material. Maracyn Oxy has been shown to be effective against certain gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Additionally, Maracyn Oxy can be used to treat bacterial diseases. Maracyn Oxy slowly releases small amounts of a stabilized oxygen-chlorine compound which, when used as directed, has the unusual ability to treat a wide variety of tropical fish diseases. Fungus infections are very difficult to treat, and are usually the result of an injury on the fish, recent parasite wounds, or bacterial infection. True fungal infections are generally found at the site of these wounds, and have a cotton-like look, much like mold found on bread, fruit, or cheese. Once the fungus begins to grow, it will continue to engulf the fish, usually resulting in death. Maracyn Oxy halts the fungus growth, and then begins to treat the source. All suspected bacterial infections should be treated immediately.
