How Medic works: Many external fish parasites have very similar life cycles. In particular, these parasites have an “attached” stage (trophonts), a “matured” stage (protomonts), a “reproductive” stage (tomonts), and a “free-swimming” stage (theronts/dinospores). Most available conditioners do not affect the free-swimming stage of the parasite which is one of the primary difficulties in dealing with these infections.

Research with ciliated protozoa has shown that the “free-swimming” stage of these parasites have remarkably consistent hatching times; we have engineered our product to be most efficient during this stage.

Medic effectively conditions the aquarium water to inhibit all stages of the parasites life cycle, but is also very effective in disrupting this cycle during the “free-swimming” stage. Thus, when using Medic, hobbyists should try to maintain the highest concentration of the conditioner during this “free-swimming” time frame – when the oxidative component in the conditioner is particularly effective against theronts/dinospores.
