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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have an Oscar fish that got very sick. The sick fish stop eating for two months, and he looked like he was a zombie. I used this product, and it helped the fish recover. It took a while bid the treatment did work. Now my fish is swimming actively and seems to be hungry all the time. A hungry fish is a healthy fish. I also changed the food from high-quality pellets to brine shrimp and bloodworm frozen food. The fish love these foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from saved my fish My fish was really sick and I was waiting for him to die but thought I would try the Lifeguard. He looked like he had a bubble completely surrounding him and it just kept getting bigger and fatter. I followed the directions and he started shrinking! By the fifth day he was almost back to his normal shape. I put the filter back in and after a couple of days I re-did the entire regiment and he was completely cured. I have looked and looked to see if I could find anyone who knew what had ailed my fish but never saw it described anywhere. He is alive and swimming thanks to the Lifeguard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Finrot got worse I bought this about a week ago due to my corydora showing signs of finrot on her back. After carefully following the dosage and even getting her her own tank (I own a 5 gallon aquarium with other fish), she has gotten progressively worse and is now dying. The finrot not only spread but she is currently bleeding out in a small bowl (i couldn't stand to see her floating around in agony in a large space). The finrot spread on her back and onto her belly- which wasnt there before. I do not reccomend this product at all (Photos attached). I'm so lucky this did not spread to my other fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Wonders My 10 gallon aquarium has had fish dying for months. Advice was given from on line sites, pet shop owners, "fish experts". Their instructions were followed exactly and the fish continued to die. The tank had two rounds of erythromycin, two rounds of doxycycline, and copper treatments. The fish continued to die. Then I stumbled on to Lifeguard at a Petco. It was almost miraculous! After two treatments, what few fish that were left, stopped flashing and started eating. I highly recommend Lifeguard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My betta, Prince, is happily recovering! When I first read reviews of this product, it seemed as if this stuff was useless to use as treatment for my betta fish, Prince ,who came down with velvet. It turns out that after the five day treatment, along with the use of aquarium salt and a complete tank blackout, my betta fish Prince regained his vibrant color and peppy personality. I highly recommend using this product. But just keep in mind, the moment you notice symptoms in your fish, treat it in a timely matter. It doesn't take very long for a disease to worsen. Follow these steps and you will be on the right track to keeping your fish happy and healthy. Don't forget that results may vary ;)
