JBL Oodinol Plus 100ml
- Combats all kinds of oodinium pathogens
- Combats parasite infestation in freshwater and marine fish. Not suitable for aquatic invertebrates
- To prevent re-infestation: the life cycle of the pathogen requires a repeated dosing. They detach themselves from the fish after a few days and sink to the bottom. Check and adjust precise dosage with copper test set
- JBL Online Hospital: gives you access to identify fish diseases
- Package contents: 1 packet Oodinol Plus 250. Suitable for max. 1000 l. For repeated use for max. 250 l.
- Use: 1st day 10 ml/100 l. 2nd day < 0.05 mg/l: 10 ml/100 l; 0.1 – 0.15 mg/l copper: re-dose 5 ml/100 l. 3rd + 5th day as for 2nd day
- About 90 % of all fish diseases can be put down to a weakening of the fish’s immune system.
- This means the application of remedies can fight the pathogen but doesn’t generally eliminate the cause. It is therefore very important to determine the cause.
- As soon as the first signs of disease become noticeable IMMEDIATE action is required. In most cases people wait too long.
- This is a parasite from the group of dinoflagellates (a kind of algae).
- This means that copper is best suited for combatting oodinum effectively.
- The copper concentration in the water is vital for a successful treatment.
- Exactly 0.3 mg/l of copper are needed, which must then be checked using a suitable copper test. Too much copper can kill fish, whereas too little copper is ineffective and may even lead to resistant pathogens.
- Like ichthyophthirius, oodinium has a life cycle where the pathogen passes through different stages.
- As with the white spot disease, the oodinium pathogen can only be combatted in the swarm out stage.
- We therefore recommend you raise the water temperature by 3 °C (do not raise the water temperature over 30 °C).
- This causes the life cycle to be accelerated, which in turn considerably improves the chances of catching the parasite in a vulnerable swarm out phase!
- Be careful with catfish! Many catfish species are sensitive to a rise in copper content. Also do not use with invertebrates in fresh and marine water.
Can I use two different medications at the same time?
> Unless otherwise indicated in the instructions for use, the simultaneous use of two different medications is not possible and we strongly advise against it. Toxic cross reactions and undesirable side effects, such as oxygen deficiency or nitrite, cannot be ruled out. If your fish suffer from a primary infection and further secondary infections, always treat the primary infection or disease with the highest stress factor for the animal. Finish a treatment with the correct dosage in accordance with the instructions and then start the second medication. After the treatment or between two treatments, filter the aquarium water over activated carbon for 24 hours to remove any residual medication. The activated carbon need then to be disposed of properly. Any medical treatment is also a stress factor for your fish, so be careful not to overburden your animals and only treat them after a thorough diagnosis.
Can I use over-the-counter medications for ornamental fish in fish that will be used for human consumption later ?
> No. As a rule, over-the-counter medications for ornamental fish may not be used in fish that are bred for human consumption.
