Herbtana for Freshwater Aquariums - 16 oz.
Item # 247207 / Manufacturer Part # HERBFW16
Microbe-lift Herbtana is a 100 percent natural herbal, immune-enhancing stimulant, which reduces the number of parasitic organisms that can cause ill effects on your fish such as: skin flukes (gyrodactylus), gill flukes(dactylogyrus), Ich(ichthyophthirius multifillis), oodinum, costia (ichthyobodo necater), chilonella and trichodina. Though parasites are present on most fish in very low levels at all times. When fish are stressed, the ability of the immune system to control the natural level of parasites can decrease, allowing parasites to increase in number and weaken or kill your fish. Herbtana supports the immune systems of your fish, driving off the excess parasites which starve without a host to feed on. Herbtana doesn't kill parasites directly, it plays a vital role in controlling their numbers, giving your fish a chance to recover. Will not harm beneficial bacteria in biological filtration.
Shake thoroughly prior to use. Remove any carbon and/or zeolite from filters. Keep biological filters operational.
Add 1 mL of MICROBE-LIFT/Herbtana per 5 gal. (19 L) daily for 10 days Or add 1 tsp. (5 mL) per 25 gal. (95 L) daily for 10 days. In severe cases, a longer treatment period may be required until visible results are achieved. New Introduction: When adding new fish to a quarantine or aquarium tank, alternate adding MICROBE-LIFT/Herbtana and MICROBE-LIFT/Artemiss at the standard dosage 12 hours apart until 2 doses of each product have been added. This will act as an immune system stimulant and destressant.

I have been using Herbtana and Artemiss Freshwater for years. See my other review... Somehow, it only shows 4.5 stars... Should be five stars. I always have both on hand.

I have been using Herbtana for years (along with with Artemss). I always have it on hand. I use it in four freshwater aquariums (75 gallon, two 20 gallon and one ten gallon). I also buy it for my son to use with his freshwater fish. It is the best product available for treating parasites. Use it at the first sign and the parasites are gone within three or four days (providing your water conditions are good). Herbtana is 100% safe for your fish - no damaging side effects as with harsh medications.
I use both Artemiss and Herbtana as directed when I buy new fish and there is rarely a problem with the fish I buy (even fish that I purchase from two to three hours away and bring home in a bucket with air pump).
I just happend upon it here at That Fish Place when I did an internet search. The previous seller really raised the prices on this product. Here I pay less even when shipping is added. The bottles arrive safely - well protected in a box.
It would be great if more aquarium supply sites carried Microbe-Lift.
Amazing results 9/13/2013
I have a 120 gallon tank. The first fish I put in it was a Bristlenose Pleco from the local feed and pet. The fish looked well enough and, after a couple of weeks, I added a bunch more fish. All of a sudden, the Pleco started getting some sort of infection, including holes in its tail, pale coloration and large, raw looking felted patches. I really didn't want to add harsh chemicals, and also didn't want to see every fish in the tank become unwell.
I ordered Herbtana and within 2 days I could see a difference with the Pleco's health. Also nervous about keeping the carbon filteration off for 10 days (as per the directions), I used the product for three days, alternating with the carbon filter for two. This pattern, though different from the recommended treatment, has worked beautifully. All the fish are perfectly happy and healthy, and the Pleco is almost fully recovered.
I am incredibly happy with this product, and would definitely recommend it to everyone.
