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 ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Bettas Life! On Wednesday morning I noticed that my Betta was covered in fungus and his eye was very strange looking. I bought the meds and at like 9pm I used half a tablet (2.5 gallon tank) to treat his tank. By the next afternoon I could tell he was getting better. And by this morning he is doing very well. I have only used 2 doses so far! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, worked like a charm! Ok, so the key to this treatment is definitely get it going early. I had a black moor starting to get covered in white spots from ick and totally lethargic and began the treatment, by the morning of day 3, the spots were disappearing and my fish was VERY active! I was sooo excited to see the black moor doing so well, especially since it was my 6 year old son's favorite fish, that i HAD to write a review. This product worked great for me for ick, but it definitely, in my opinion, depends on how early you get it going, i had a 2nd goldfish quarantined with ick, much further along that did NOT make it, but his ick was SO much more progressed. However, ALL the fish in my big tank where i did the treatment pulled through great, composed of fancy goldfish and baby guppies! Thanks Tetra!
