Long Bath (3 – 5 days) – Apply 200 mg of Acriflavine per 10 gallons (5ppm) of either aquarium water or stock holding tank water. No water change is required. If added in a planted aquarium, this may kill the plants and have a negative impact over beneficial nitrogen reducing bacteria in your filtration system.
Short Bath (2 hours) – Using separate treatment container with aeration, prepare a 10 ppm treatment bath. (Note: 10 ppm is equivalent to 10 mg of Acriflavine per liter of treatment water or 37.8 mg per gallon of treatment water). After 2 hours of treatment, return the fish to habitat water.
Acriflavine stored in room temp will maintain its activity for 18 months.
