Product Description
ParaGuard is the only fish and filter safe aldehyde based (10% by weight) parasite control product available. Unlike highly toxic and difficult to use formalin based medications, ParaGuard contains no formaldehyde or methanol and will not alter pH. ParaGuard employs a proprietary, synergistic blend of aldehydes, malachite green, and fish protective polymers that effectively and efficiently eradicates many ectoparasites on fish (e.g. ich, etc.) and external fungal/bacterial/viral lesions (e.g., fin rot). It is particularly useful in hospital and receiving tanks for new fish and whenever new fish are introduced to a community tank. For use in freshwater or marine. ParaGuard is recommended for the treatment of certain diseases in marine and freshwater fish only. It IS NOT recommended for treating any style aquarium containing invertebrates, corals, crustaceans, or elasmobranchs (sharks and rays).

    1does NOT work on ich - read other reviews I am not the only one saying this
    By Waffle Lover
    Seachem is normally a good company but I have no idea why they advertising this product as working for ich. It does not, at all.

    I had goldfish with ich and treated carefully and precisely according to the directions on the product. 3 days later, instead of getting better, my goldfish were all dead.

    When I first put the minimum does of the product in my hospital tank my goldfish seemed very agitated, swimming up and then down through the bubbles like they were trying to get something off their skin. Then they settled down so I though they would get better. Changed water daily, increased temperature 2 degrees more than they were used to before (my normal tank is 76 degress, i turned it up to 78 in this tank) and followed all directions everywhere, water quality was excellent, fish were fed, plenty of airation. I did everything I could so I am disappointed in this product because I could have used something else that would have worked had I know this would NOT WORK ON ICH.

    Dont make the same mistake - buy something else for ich.

    4More Prevention than Treatment
    By Kristen
    When my aquarium had a breakout of skin flukes I bought this thinking it would cure my ailing fish. Although it did seem to prevent the parasites from spreading to unaffected fish, it did not kill the parasites or cure the fish that already had visible symptoms. It may work at curing your fish if you catch the symptoms soon enough and add some right away. I like that its safe and natural, none of my fish showed any signs of distress while I administered this product. I was able to get rid of the skin flukes after adding Maracyn-two and CopperSafe to the mix. I haven't given up on ParaGuard yet though! I will probably use it as my first option if any parasite-like symptoms appear again in the future.

    3So so
    By Crystal
    Not going to say bad or good as it didn't help but didn't hurt the fish either. I don't recommend doing baths though. My dish acted badly to it. They are bettas if wondering. Tails on them have been bad for months and can't get them to grow. I also suspected velvet. Treated for a week now and so far no change. Is 10 gallon tank and almost out of it, also is uncycled so would be able to tell ya guys if it hurt the cycle. As for the good it didn't change my silicone to blue.
