Fungus Guard Tablets is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minimal Instructions I placed the tablet in my 10 gallon tank and it seems to be working quite quickly! And for that I am happy! But the box comes with little instruction as to how many tablets and how many times to put one in the tank. I don't want to hurt my fish and I also don't know if I need to remove the filter because its a 10 gallon tank. It stated if it was a 40 gallon to take the filter out and change the water but not sure if it applies to my 10 gallon. Other than that it looks to be working but I don't know if Im doing it right : (

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I recently purchased a Orange and Black Oranda goldfish. Within 2 weeks, I noticed white fuzzy patches on his black. After some research I quickly ran down to my local fish supply store and purchased the Tetra Fungus Guard. As soon as I returned home, I put one tablet in my tank. Problem got better with in a couple of days.Only downfall is lack of instructions on package. Doesn't talk about how long filter needs to be out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good I had an unknown (to me) problem with my platy fish dying off, with what appeared to be no symptoms. Used Fungus Guard and the problem has not continued. Will gladly use again if this condition reappears.My only problem was with the limited directions, does not say how long to keep up treatment with the filter pad removed and when to begin the water changes. Only talks about if a second treatment is required.

How many fungus guard tabs to treat 100 gall aquarium and how often 

Asked by: codling
You need one for every 10 gallons of water so a total of 10 per treatment, unless you have a lot of gravel and décor. Gravel and décor will displace some water, so your tank would not actually be holding 100 gallons. It may only have 90 gallons of water in it, for example. In this example, you would only need 9 tablets. You treat for four days, and then if fish are not well, you would do a second dose on day 4.BREX

Hi guys, l am treating my oranda for swim bladder / dropsy with an Interpet product, l want to use Fungus Guard , 2 days ago was the lastdose of Interpet , when can l start with Fungus guard , please can you advise asap,Thankyou

Asked by: bowman1
Do a partial water change, and then begin treatment. You may also want to run fresh carbon for a few hours, but it is most likely unnecessary if you do the partial water change.BREX

I used Fungus Guard and Parasite Guard at the same time. That seemed to be what the LFS guy suggested, and there's nothing on either box that warns against it. It's been 2 days and no issues yet, but will this be a problem?

Asked by: rcharrod
No, your LFS was correct in recommending them together. It is fine to combine them. Just be sure to do a partial water change prior to each dose to keep your water quality in good shape. Carbon filter out for the duration of all treatments.BREX

I put 1 fungas guard tablet in my 10 gal tank. It fizzed for about 10sec then my green severum ate it!!! Not sure if I should dissolve another tab and put in tank or if it'll still work even though fish ate it. And will severum be okay?

Asked by: KarenC
I figured because I searched ALL your Q&A lol. Ok so it's been a few days and my Severum is alive! He had the cloud on his eyes. Cloud still there, but not as bad. I'm going to do water change. I'll wait a day then do another tab of its not cleared. My advice to anyone with fish is to dissolve tab in water first. Unless you have very small fish.

I used one tab in my 10 gal with neon tetras is this going to harm them?

Asked by: Smh85
Possibly. Tetras tend to be more sensitive, and neons and cardinals are the most sensitive. I've used it with other tetras like phantoms, serpaes and rummy nosed with no issue, however. We would generally recommend a half dose, so I would suggest a partial water change of around 2-3 gallons to help dilute the medication.BREX

In day four of treating ich... Water has be come very very cloudy. (White cloudy not green)

Should I be concerned??? I am doing salt treatment as well. Carbon filters are pulled, 20% daily water change and using ich guard daily.... Please advise... Thank you...1 black oranda ( 6" head to end of tail) 1 Ryukin (2 1/2 " head to end of tail)
Asked by: Chris1251
I am wondering what size tank this is; that is a pretty large oranda. The white cloud sounds like an algae bloom is getting ready to occur. Water will often turn very white then after a couple of days or so, go bright green. When you do the water change, be sure to vacuum the gravel too. I would recommend testing the water for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH just to be safe. The water could be a harmless algal bloom, but it could mean that parameters are getting out of control and you may want to stop medicating and get them back into control.BREX

Is this safe for a tank with a betta and a white cloud fish ?

I have a betta and a white cloud fish in my tank. I had a African dwarf frog in the tank also but he recently died . Now the betta has been acting sick. I do not know for sure what is wrong with him . I was going to just try to see if this helps. If you have another suggestion that may work beter I will gladly try anything. I have a 10 gallon tank .
Asked by: Brendie1991
Yes, this is safe for both species. It treats bacterial and fungal issues. If you are not sure what is wrong, you may want Lifeguard instead.BREX

Treatment Instructions?

I placed the one tablet in my tank and it seems to be working quick! But Im unsure as to when to place another tablet?It said to take the filter out if it was a 40 gallon tank but I have a 10 gallon tank so I didn't take my filter out and don't know if its wrong?Please help! I don't want to hurt my fish but want to cure the eye cloud.
Asked by: FirefighterArtze
With this medication, you remove the carbon from your filter system, but leave the filter operating. You treat once every 4 days. Prior to each treatment, do a partial water change. Two doses should suffice.BREX
