MICROBE-LIFT/Herbtana is a unique, herbal, immune-enhancing stimulant, which reduces: skin flukes (gyrodactylus), gill flukes (Dactylogyrus), Ich (ichthyophthirius multifillis), oodinum, costia (ichthyobodo necater), chilonella and trichodina. Parasite infections are characterized by symptoms, such as: milky skin, flashing and heavy breathing. However, they can only be diagnosed with certainty through microscopic examination. Naturaly controlled by the fish’s immune system, parasites are present on most fish in very low levels at all times. When stress levels increase, the ability of the immune system to respond to its requirement to control the natural level of parasites is directly affected. This poor response allows parasites to increase in number, thus causing any of the
serious, above mentioned health issues in the host fish. MICROBE-LIFT/Herbtana supports the fish’s immune system, driving off the excess parasites. Since they cannot return to the fish during that treatment, the majority of the parasites will starve without a host. So, although MICROBELIFT/ Herbtana does not directly kill parasites, it is ultimately responsible for their death.
