Tetra® Ick Guard® is a soothing conditioner that quickly clears ick (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis), or white spot, on freshwater fish. Ick is usually the result of sudden changes in the aquarium water temperature or stress. Left untreated, ick spreads rapidly and is usually fatal. Special ingredients have been added to protect fish from secondary infections.
Tetra Fizz Tabs are fast dissolving premeasured tablets that make caring for your aquarium faster, easier, and more convenient.

This product comes in the following size: 8 ct

NOTE: FOR AQUARIUMS 40 GALLONS OR LARGER, AND FOR SOFT WATER AND/OR ACID WATER WITH LOW ALKALINITY, DISSOLVE TABLETS BEFORE ADDING TO AQUARIUM. USE TETRA TEST STRIPS TO MONITOR pH AND ALKALINITY LEVELS. USE HALF STRENGTH FOR SCALELESS OR SENSITIVE FISH. THERE IS NO NEED TO RAISE THE WATER TEMPERATURE. REMOVE CARBON FROM FILTER DURING USE. IF ICK PERSISTS, TREAT EVERY 24 HOURS UNTIL IT CLEARS. CHANGE 25% OF THE WATER BEFORE ADDING ANY NEW DOSE, ADD TETRA AQUASAFE TO ALL TAP WATER.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I treated two glo-tetras with Ick Guard the first day I spotted the problem and before it could get worse. After one day both fish seemed nearly cured, with just one very small spot remaining on each. Following instructions, I changed 1/4 of the water, retreated, and the next day one of the fish that seemed nearly cured was dead . The other was fine, but started twitching constantly in her tail and upper fin where it had originally had the ick spots though the spots were now completely gone; this improved a little a day later. I retreated with half a dose this time, and immediately the twitching became worse again, improving a little again the following day as the blue color of the water from the Ick treatment began to subside. This leads me to believe that the Ick Guard is the cause of the twitching. The pet shop worker had told me that Tetras are sensitive to the Tetra Ick Guard treatment. I won't return the fish to the community tank until I'm certain disease is completely gone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less is more I bought this ick guard from a local store when I first noticed ick starting on a couple of my Cherry Barbs, relatively affordable and got rid of the problem in about 2 days (1 tablet each day) in my 10 gallon tank. But, and this is a big "but" it killed all of them. I followed the instructions carefully and did a 30-40% water change before adding the second tablet. When I got home from work on the second day, I found 1 barb dead, and the rest on their way out, I did a 90% water change and returned my filter to the tank to try and save them. Although this ick guard worked fast, I recommend using just half a tablet in smaller tanks with smaller fish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Directions and review I used one tablet and woke up the next morning to my two smallest fish dead (about 1inch fancy tails), others seem to be fine and ick actually seems to be decreased on them. I was disappointed that the box I bought of ick guard did not have directions, I had to spend a bit of time online to find this... Dosage: Use 1 tablet for each 10 gallons of aquarium water. For tank volumes of 40 gallons or larger, and for soft and/or acidic water, pre-dissolve tablets before adding to the tank. Only half strength should be used for scaleless, weak, sensitive or small fish. Additional Directions: Remove carbon from filter during use. If Ick persists, treat the water every 24 hours until cleared. 25% of water should be changed before adding any new dose. https://aquariumspace.com/threads/tetra-ick-guard.5223/ The full tablet must have been too much for my smallest guy's to handle, if I get small fish again and need to use this product I will use half a dose or at least predissolve the tablet in water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, POOR instructions Product worked great!! 3 fish all with Ich and 1 with the start of fin rot this cleared the Ich in days. My only issue was there was NO instructions except drop 1 tab for so many gallons of water. THATS IT!?!?! I had to look up the rest of the needed instructions of no filter and do it daily and continue for 3-4 days after it clears....useful information that would have been great to know BEFORE i wasted a perfectly good filter cartridge. But alas google saved the day on this mishap. 4 stars for lack of info only

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for the information on this product. It works great and has saved my fish. I started our fish tank a couple of weeks ago and had to buy a heater and fish. I realized it was important to know how many fish I could have in the tank. It is only a 12 gallon, and I bought some different type of fish. Then I realized one of them was sick. You helped me see what kind of sickness it had and what to do. Thank you for all the information you have to take care of my fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very impressed I tried this on my.severums witch were covered by ich. The next morning that were almost gone and I could tell that were feeling much better and were hungry. I have been a aquarist for over 40 years. And I have never seen ich treatment work so fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Children's Life! So my first group of kids died because of Ich and i bought the medicine too late and i was discouraged, until my best friend surprised me with my new children! i check up on them everyday and they were doing great until 2 days ago i wake up and there was thick white spots all over them! My purple Glofish Tetra was the worst! Bro! Thank goodness i had Ich guard from the first time, i put it in right away and uped the temp too 85F and literally in a few hours i would say 4, most of the spots where gone and you can tell my babies where feeling better! Not even half a day and they are cured! Like Honestly Thank You!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!!! I have to honestly say i was hesitant treating my betta with ick guard just because some not to use it and others say it works great. Well for me i believe my betta became super stressed out moving from his cup i bought him in to a 1.5 gallon tank only for a week later into a 5.5 gallon tank. so obviously he ended up developing ick and i was heartbroken that my little guy was feeling so bad :( he was scratching himself all over the gravel and biting his fins so i had to do something. i went out early morning and bought the ick guard and started treatment that morning. i removed my carbon rocks from my filter (not fun) and gave a 1/2 tab to him immediately during a 25% water change. I am now barely on day 2 and he has no more white spots!!! i cannot believe it worked and he seems happier :) i probably will continue another day just in case but i am so happy i tried it. Worked miracles on my little guy. also just a side note, i did not wait for it to get too bad, he only had the spots on his fins, i did not wait to let it get all over his body. So i say he had a mild case of it.
