Malachite green is used as a disinfectant. It is a dark greenish powder in appearance. Malachite green has been traditionally used in treating the fungal infections on the fish and their eggs. Malachite Green and Formalin are two of the key chemicals used for treating fish diseases and have been used for many years against a range of parasites. They can be used together or separately as anti-parasite treatments against parasites such as Gyrodactylus (skin flukes), Dactylogyrus (gill flukes), Ichthyobodo (Costia), Trichodina , Chilodonella and Ichthyophthirius (white spot).
Very good against external parasitic diseases.
Safe for all aquatic animals in treating their eggs too.
Can be used in both marine and fresh water fishes.

Short Bath (2 hours) – Using a separate treatment container with aeration, prepare a 10 ppm treatment bath. After 2 hours of treatment, return fish to habitat water.
