DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Apply HALAMID AQUA at a concentration of 20 milligrams per liter water [mg/L; equivalent to parts per million (ppm)] in a continuous flow water supply or as a static bath once per day for 60 minutes on consecutive or alternative days for three treatments in fish culture units.STATIC TREATMENT: Shut off water flow to culture unit before adding drug. Completely dissolve HALAMID AQUA in a separate container of culture water and thoroughly mix into the culture unit. The drug solution should be used immediately and not stored. End treatment by flushing system with fresh water. Resume normal flow. CONTINUOUS FLOW TREATMENT: Determine flow rate for culture unit. Pre-charge culture unit by administering the amount of drug needed for a static treatment. Meter additional drug solution into culture unit at a concentration and rate necessary to maintain the target dose in the culture unit for the duration of the treatment period (see table above for calculations).
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Aquacalm TM is packaged as a dry powder and must be mixed with water to be used. Determine the amount of Aquacalm TM powder needed to achieve the desired concentration for the intended use. Dissolve Aquacalm TM in a known volume of water, mix well, and aerate water during sedation or anesthesia. Lightly sedated fish may lose their ability to maintain upright position or position in a stream flow. Deeply sedated or anesthetized fish will experience total loss of equilibrium. Before beginning sedation or anesthesia, ensure that AquacalmTM-free water is available for recovery. Always test the dosage on a small group of fish first to make sure no unintended or adverse effects occur. SPECIES: Aquacalm TM has been tested on representative ornamental finfish species, but has not been tested on all fish species. The effect of Aquacalm TM may vary between (and within) species, depending upon age and physical condition of fish, and under different water conditions. Sedate or anesthetize fish in water with temperature and pH close to the temperature and pH of the rearing water. Caution should be taken when using this product on/for: 1. Larval fish species, which may be more sensitive to sedation than older fish of the same species 2. Fish species such as knifefish and gouramis 3. Any fish species for extended periods (e.g.> 24 hr) used during transportation DOSAGE: Dose for sedation: 0.1 to 1.0 mg/L Dose for anesthesia: 1.0 to 10.0 mg/L The dose should be individualized, depending upon the fish species and the degree of anesthesia required. Consideration should be taken when sedating or anesthetizing fish at water temperatures substantially different from the species preferred water temperature or at very low pH. DURATION OF TREATMENT: At doses suitable for total loss of equilibrium or anesthesia, do not expose fish for more than 60 min. At doses suitable to sedate fish for transportation, do not expose fish for more than 24 hr. To facilitate recovery upon removal from a solution of Aquacalm TM, place fish in well oxygenated, high quality water free of AquacalmTM. Fish should recover in 20 to 90 min. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Use of Aquacalm TM is contraindicated in species of fish that rely upon accessory air breathing organs for oxygen consumption. Sedation or anesthesia of such species may result in unacceptable rates of mortality. DOSE CALCULATION: The dose is based on the volume of water in which fish will be placed or held. For example, if the desired Aquacalm TM concentration is 2.0 mg/L and the tank holding the fish contains 10 L of water, use the following calculation: 2 mg/L X 10L = 20 mg = 0.02 g Aquacalm TM For example, if the desired Aquacalm TM concentration is 2.0 mg/L and the tank holding the fish contains 5 gal of water, use the following calculation (note that the correction factor is used when volume is reported in gallons): 2 mg/L X 5 gal X 0.00378 = 0.038 g Aquacalm TM
APPLICATION TO TANKS AND RACEWAYS -Turn off water supply, provide aeration, apply appropriate amount of PARASITE-S, and thoroughly dilute and mix to assure equal distribution ofPARASITE-S. Treat for up to 1 hour for fish and up to 4 hours for penaeid shrimp, then drain thesolution and refill the tank with fresh, well-aerated water. While tank is under treatment, adequateoxygen must be present to maintain the fish or shrimp. If needed. aeration should be provided toprevent oxygen depletion. Treatments may be repeated daily until parasite control is achieved.APPLICATION TO PONDS - Apply greatly diluted PARASITE-S to the pond evenly using a pump,sprayer, boat bailer, or other suitable device to assure even distribution. Allow PARASITE-S to dissipatenaturally. Single treatments usually control most parasites, but may be repeated in 5 to 10 days ifneeded. Treatments for Ichthyophthirius should be made at 2-day intervals until control is achieved.APPLICATION TO EGG INCUBATORS - Apply PARASITE-S into a constant water supply flowingaround the eggs. A drip or pressure system should be used and timed. Apply PARASITE-S underthe surface of the water flow.
