OVERVIEW:

  • Welded filter bag ideal for all filtration
  • Resealable locking closure
  • 180 micron mesh
  • Resistant to bleach, caustics, and acids

NeoPlex

NeoPlex™ is a broad spectrum antibiotic effective against most external infections of both marine and freshwater fish. Used as directed, NeoPlex™ will not discolor the water or damage the filter bed. It is well tolerated by invertebrates, although delicate species may be stressed.

Active ingredients: neomycin sulfate (43%) Inactive ingredients: excipients (57%)

NeoPlex™ is appropriate for treating a variety of external infections of both marine and freshwater fish. Below are some of the more common diseases treatable with NeoPlex™. Be aware that many diseases and infections share similar physical and behavioral symptoms, e.g. clamped fins, lesions, loss of appetite.

Seachem NeoPlex is a scientifically formulated broad spectrum antibiotic medication designed to safely and effectively treat a number of potentially deadly external fungal and bacterial infections such as fin rot, bacterial lesions, bloat and mouth rot. Well suited to both freshwater and saltwater aquariums, the solution does not contribute to water discoloration nor does it damage the established filter bed. Seachem NeoPlex is completely safe for invertebrates, though some of the more delicate species may become stressed out. Comes in a 10 gram container.

Directions:

Dosing in Water:

Turn off all UV filters, ozone filters, and remove chemical filtration. Use 1 measure (included) per every 8 L (2 gallons) of aquarium water. Repeat this dose every 7 days to a maximum of 3 weeks. This will treat external infections.

Dosing in Food

Feed the medicated food mix every day until the infection clears or for up to 1 week. This medicated food can be refrigerated or frozen between feedings. This will treat internal infections.

  • 1 scoop Seachem NeoPlex
  • 1 scoop Seachem Focus
  • 1 tbsp food (preferably pellets or frozen food)
  • A few drops of water if using a dry food

After Treating

When the treatment period is over, NeoPlex can easily be removed using activated filter carbon. The solution will not linger in the substrate or filter media of the tank.

OVERVIEW:

  • Broad spectrum antibiotic effective against most external infections
  • Safe for marine and freshwater
  • Minimal impact on bio-filter

Reef Buffer

When used as directed Reef Buffer™ will raise the pH of your reef system to 8.3 without fear of accidentally overshooting the pH to a dangerous level. Whereas competing products simply use sodium bicarbonate, Reef Buffer™ is made with a blend of carbonate and bicarbonate salts. This blend of salts results in Reef Buffer™ yielding a pK of roughly 8.6 in saltwater.

The pK of a buffering agent is equivalent to the pH around which that buffer most strongly buffers. One would presume, then, that the pK of a saltwater buffer should be 8.3; however, the multitude of organic acids produced by the inhabitants of a reef system forces pH downward to a much greater degree than in a non-reef, marine system. A buffer with a pK of 8.3 would end up yielding a pH more in the range of 8.0-8.2. Reef Buffer’s™ higher pK (8.6) allows for greater pH stability in a reef system where the bioload is significantly more than in a fish only system. Competing products are not designed specifically for the reef environment, so their pK is too low (in most cases, pK 8.3). At this pK, the proper pH can never be reached in saltwater.

Seachem Reef Buffer will also raise carbonate alkalinity; however, it is intended primarily for use as a buffer in a reef system where the maintenance of a pH of 8.3 is often difficult. Reef Buffer is specifically designed to meet the needs and requirements on the closed reef environment. Reef buffer is a blended product and is not just sodium carbonate. Reef builder should be used to raise alkalinity when ph is not a problem.

OVERVIEW:

  • Raises pH to 8.3
  • Raises pH and carbonate alkalinity together
  • pK (8.6) allows for greater pH stability in a reef system where the bioload is significantly more than in a fish only system

Reef Trace

Replenishment of a number of trace elements is required to maintain an environment ideal for the growth and reproduction of marine life, but while the importance of trace elements has been recognized by aquarists for many years, the physiological reasons are not fully understood. The chemical elements in seawater are varied, and, likewise their addition to the aquarium in trace quantities has varied effects on a variety of saltwater plant and invertebrate species. In general, though, these elements are important for metabolic processes and pigment formation. Addition of iron, for instance, has been shown to benefit coloring and growth for corals, anenomes, and other photosynthetic animals.

Reef Trace™ supplies a broad range of trace elements demonstrated to be necessary for proper reef health and growth. Trace elements are normally depleted by utilization, oxidation and precipitation. The latter two processes occur more rapidly than with other micronutrients. This makes it important to restore trace elements on a regular basis. Reef Trace™ is nitrate/phosphate free.

OVERVIEW:

  • Supplies a broad range of trace elements
  • Reef Trace™ may be used alone or in conjunction with Reef Plus™
  • Reef Trace™ is nitrate/phosphate free

Reef Dip

Reef Dip™ contains elemental iodine complexed to a protective slime coat for safely and gently disinfecting corals. It is effective against bacteria, fungus, and protozoans. It may be used prophylactically (without evidence of disease) or to remedy diseased specimens. It is safe to use with both stony and soft corals. It is also safe for anemones and polyps.

Reef Dip™ provides a protective slime coat complex that covers the coral, holding the iodine in contact with the infected site for extended periods of time. In addition, the slime coat prevents infection from re-rentering the site.

OVERVIEW:

  • Coral disinfectant
  • Elemental iodine complex, disinfects corals
  • Good for use before introducing new corals

Cupramine

Cupramine™ effectively eradicates Oodinium, Cryptocaryon, Amyloodinium, Ichthyophthirius, and other ectoparasites of both freshwater and marine fish. It is superior to copper sulfate, chloride & citrate: it is non-acidic, less toxic to fish, remains in solution, and does not contaminate the filter bed. It is superior to chelates: it is fully charged (ionic), active at low concentrations, and is removable with carbon.

There is more than a four-fold concentration gap between the minimal therapeutic dose (0.2 mg/L) and the toxic dose (0.8 mg/L). Cupramine™ is easily removable with chemical filtration. It is highly effective and safe in freshwater as well as marine water.

Cupramine™ is appropriate for treating a variety of ectoparasites of both freshwater and marine fish. Below are some of the more common infections treatable with Cupramine™. Be aware that many diseases and infections share similar physical and behavioral symptoms, e.g. clamped fins, lesions, loss of appetite.

Before Treatment:

Remove all invertebrates as these organisms are extremely sensitive to copper and may become sick or worse with a copper-based medication. Turn off any UV filters, ozone filters, and remove all chemical filtration like MatrixCarbon and Purigen. Do not use this formula in conjunction with any other medication. Do not use products that contain reducing agents (conditioners, ammonia binders, etc.) while using Cupramine.

Treatment:

If you have a bottle with a dropper cap, use exactly 20 drops (1 mL) per 40 L (10.5 US gallons) the first day, wait 48 hours and then repeat this process. On non-dropper caps, each inner ring is equivalent to 1 mL. In freshwater aquariums use only a half dose. The final copper concentration is 0.5 mg/L (0.25 mg/L in freshwater). Leave the aquarium at this concentration for 14 days. Do not redose without testing (MultiTest Copper). If tank has ever been treated with an ionic copper (e.g. copper chloride, sulfate or citrate), test copper level after initial dosing. Although most fish tolerate Cupramine to 0.8 mg/L, it is not advisable to exceed 0.6 mg/L copper.

Finishing the Full Treatment:

Ich, velvet, and many other common parasites spend a large portion of their life cycle as a small cyst that hides in the substrate of your tank and is immune to medication. Because of this, it is VERY important that you finish the full treatment even if you can’t see any more parasites on the fish!

After Treatment:

Cupramine can be removed using carbon or Seachem CupriSorb. You can leave the copper-absorbing media inside of your aquarium for at least a week after the copper concentration has reached 0 to ensure that all traces of the medication have been removed entirely.

OVERVIEW:

  • Copper treatment for external parasites
  • Active at low concentration (does not precipitate)
  • Bound on amine so it is not as toxic to fish
  • 100% Removable with carbon or Cuprisorb
