Rated 4 out of 5 by from Curious I noticed my fish acting differently after introducing a new fish to the tank. The new fish didn’t survive and my others gradually starting getting worse. I have been using the life guard for three days now and two seem to be getting better and the others seem to be just hanging in there. My question is when I finish the five day treatment is it recommended to run another 5 day treatment if I see progress but not full recovery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my Betta I took a chance on this product since none of my local or big box fish stores had anything for what I thought was Velvet. My Betta had clamped fins, was losing color and didn't have much energy. Within 2 days of starting treatment he was significantly better, his fins where opening, his color was more vibrant and he was more energetic. By the time treatment was finished on day 5 he was a whole new fish. This medication is the best! Don't second guess getting it , this product works, I will be purchasing another box of 32 tablets just to have on hand in an emergency. Tetra, please never stop making this product and please keep it in this pill form, it's so, so easy to dose and no mess whatsoever. Well Done Tetra!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Help :( I have just used this for my new blue oranda which came to me with septicemia. It saved her! Unfortunately I treated my other goldies as well, but for fungus. One is cured of fungus and the other is now coooated in it. Both have started flashing and clamping their fins along with multiple other issues though. Lifeguard should have treated/prevented these issues. Do I treat them again now? Wait? Do something else? I'm at a loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Saved my fish! I had no clue what parasite or disease my fish had. Every morning I woke up and a fish that appeared to be healthy the night before was dead. I tested my water and everything was perfect. I took a shot in the dark and added this product. I have not lost one fish now for months. Whatever it did, it worked. I can now enjoy my hobby again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eliminated all my problems My white telescope started turning pink with red streaks which I discovered was septicemia, almost always fatal. After only 3 days he was significantly less red/pink. He is now all white, not isolating and swimming around with his dorsal fin up. Thought he was going to be a goner for sure. Can’t believe he came around! Great med!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Recovery! I bought this about a week ago after one of my 4 fishes died. It was one of four fishes I had just bought (they all died within a week of purchase). I am a new fish owner and had no idea of how to prevent any new fishes from infecting my older ones (they are about 6 months old). The last fish to die showed signs of fin rot and this got me worried. One of my older fishes began to develop red streaks and began to show signs of early fin rot. He was in very horrible condition and my other remaining fish was also getting sick. I read an article about fin rot and decided that this was the best medication to get. I began medication immediately and at first, I thought the fish was going to die. He was showing signs of black spots and they were quickly spreading. Day 1 of treatment showed no improvement and had my fish in the corner. Day 2 had my fish become more active but he developed more red streaks and black spots, I made a 10% water change. Day 3 showed some improvement in the fin rot but not in the black spots. I read that the black spots are signs of healing but I'm not sure. The 2nd fish was completely healthy by this day. Day 4 had increased level of activity and the fish began to lose some of the black spots (maybe half or so). Today is day 5 and almost all black spots are gone as well as the red ones. Their fins are recovering and I am extremely happy with the results.
