Seachem MetroPlex 5g
Treats protozoan parasites and anaerobic bacterial diseases.
- For Marine and Freshwater Fish.
- No impact on bio-filter.
- Well suited for medicated food mix for internal parasites.
MetroPlex is an effective and safe treatment for several protozoan and anaerobic bacterial diseases of fish (Cryptocaryon, Hexamita, Ichthyophthirius). It does not adversely affect the filter bed and is easily removed with carbon. It can either be dosed into the water or combined with Focus in a medicated food mix. It will treat both internal and external infections regardless of the delivery method. When used in a medicated food mix, it is excellent for treating parasites in tanks that contain invertebrates. MetroPlex is gentle and there is little danger to fish.
MetroPlex is appropriate for treating a variety of protozoan and anaerobic bacterial diseases of fish including Ich, White Spot, Hole in the Head, Head and Lateral Line Erosion (HLLE), Velvet. Be aware that many diseases and infections share similar physical and behavioral symptoms, e.g. clamped fins, lesions, loss of appetite.
Dosing in Water:
Remove all invertebrates - these are extremely sensitive to medication. Turn off UV filters, ozone filters, and remove chemical filtration like MatrixCarbon and Purigen. Use 1-2 measures (included) per every 40 L (10 US gallons). Repeat this dose every 48 hours for up to 3 weeks or until symptoms disappear.
Dosing in Food:
Feed the medicated food mix (recipe below) every day until the infection clears or up to 3 weeks. This medicated food can be refrigerated or frozen between feedings.
- 1 scoop MetroPlex
- 1 scoop Focus
- 1 tbsp food (preferably pellets or frozen food)
- A few drops of water if using a dry food
When the treatment period is over, MetroPlex can easily be removed using activated filter carbon like MatrixCarbon. It does not linger in the substrate or filter media of the tank.
