Marine Ich is usually associated with environmental triggers like a change in water temperature, high levels of ammonia or low levels of pH. Signs of Ich can be loss of appetite, increased mucous layer and trouble breathing. When using Ich-X SW you will need to set up a quarantine tank with proper filtration, water movement, temperature monitoring, and top off since most of the time it can take up to 8 weeks to fully implement a type of treatment from start to finish.
Directions for Use
To treat marine "ich" conditions, add 1 tsp (~5mL) of Ich-X to 10 gallons of fresh saltwater.
For Best Results:
1. Always treat in a separate quarantine/treatment tank.
2. Remove activated carbon from filters and clean or replace mechanical filtration media. do not stop filtration!
3. Make at least 20% water change before each addition of Ich-X SW
4. Repeat treatments at least every 24 hours, but no more often than every 8 hours, depending upon the course of the disease (refer to the Ich-X SW Product Data Sheet.) Treatment should continue for 3 days beyond the visible signs of the disease.
Not for use in Reef Aquariums - DO NOT OVERDOSE.

NOT REEF SAFE By Joe on 7/13/2019Joe wouldn't recommend this product to a friendOf course I didn't QT my last fish and ended up getting ich. I have a six foot tank so trying to catch 15 fish was going to be tough. Figured I would try this stuff since it does say reef tested. Read and followed the directions on the bottle. After the first night, 80% of my SPS were dead. Some soft coral was all closed up ( one died others came back). and the best part, it didn't kill any of the ich. I lost 11 fish, some of my snails/hemits died and then all the coral. If you are thinking about buying this and using it in your tank, DONT, buy the trap sold on here and catch and treat in a separate tank. Hopefully this spares others the dead corals

Does ich-x works for marine velvet?
We are not aware of Ich X having any impact on Marine velvet.
Is this reef safe
It is NOT reef safe. You want to make sure you treat your fish in a separate tank as it will be toxic to corals and invertebrates.
Will it affect live rock all i have is live rock live sand and fish
It will. These treatment cannot be done in your display tank, the fish must be removed to another tank. Aside from the fact that it would have detrimental effects on the other critters in your tank (shrimp, microfauna, etc), the chemicals can stay inside the rock, sand, etc so you wouldn't be able to use anything in that tank (and according to some, the tank itself) ever with any corals or other sensitive species (shrimps, etc).
