  • $ 14.99

Fritz Mardel Bactershield is a revolutionary new way to help maintain optimum fish health. This bio-adhesive supplement repairs and strengthens the fish’s natural slime coat which protects against bacterial and fungal infections.

Proven, natural oils and extracts are combined with a patented film forming matrix to help repair and strengthen a fish’s natural slime coat and help provide a protective shield around your fish. A fish’s slime coat acts as the first line of defense for fish against bacterial and fungal infections. Use Bactershield as a preventative treatment after stressful events or for mild cases of common bacterial and fungal diseases such as fin and tail rot, popeye, body, mouth, or eye fungus, or gill disease.
