Instructions
Directions for Use:
Fish Tapes
Add one level teaspoon (3.1 gm) of Fish Tapes powder or empty one Fish Tapes capsule in no more than 10 gallons of water for individual bathing. Start treatment with as large of a water change as practical or with new water. Do not stop filtration, but remove activated carbon and UV sterilization. Distribute the amount around the edges or directly into the filter box to achieve the best overall distribution. A single treatment lasting 5-7 days is normally sufficient. Retreat as necessary; but no more than once every 3-5 days. May be used as a preventative at the standard dosage. Do not use with any other drugs.
