Product information

Healthy fish - healthy aquarium
Fish have feelings too – not only we humans! Catching, transporting, transferring, too high stock, wrong socialisation, unsuitable food, illnesses going around, nowhere to be alone, an aggressive environment, the wrong water values, a too high water load and constant disturbances caused by tweaking the aquarium can create stress for fish which leads to weakened immunity.

Remedies actively combat the pathogens and lower the risk of infection. Visit the JBL Online Hospital and find out what could be bothering your aquarium dwellers. Having considered the various factors JBL suggests the best treatment.

The correct use of remedies:
- thorough siphoning of the bottom ground
- removal of activated carbon from the filter
- switching-off of the UV-C devices
- 50% water change before and after the treatment
- using the remedy in accordance with the package insert
- increasing the water temperature by 3 °C, max. up to 30 °C, for some days
- creating good aeration by means of a diaphragm pump

FAQ
JBL Punktol Plus 125, 250 and 1500 colour the water very strongly.

This is correct, as the increased combination of active ingredients causes the water to change colour noticeably more.

Some discolouration of furnishings made of plastic, and transparent silicon adhesive seams may occur.

Can I use over-the-counter medications for ornamental fish in fish that will be used for human consumption later ?

No. As a rule, over-the-counter medications for ornamental fish may not be used in fish that are bred for human consumption.

Both white spot disease and hole-in-head disease have erupted in the aquarium. Can I use simultaneous treatment with JBL Punktol ultra, Punktol Plus 125 or JBL Punktol Plus 250 and JBL Spirohexol 2 or JBL Spirohexol Plus 250? If so, what dosages should I use?

Simultaneous use of JBL Punktol ultra, JBL Punktol Plus 125, JBL Punktol Plus 250 and JBL Spirohexol 2 or JBL Spirohexol Plus 250 is not advisable. Unpredictable cross-reactions may occur.

Which disease to treat first essentially depends on the severity and the rate at which the disease spreads.

In that case, it is advisable to contact a veterinarian with expertise in fish. Our Online Hospital has a link to the website of the German practicing veterinarians.

Please note that we are unable to provide information on the diagnosis of fish diseases by phone or email, as corresponding examinations are needed for a diagnosis.

Du I have to turn off the aquarium light when using JBL Punktol?

The information given in some online forums that the light needs to be switched off during malachite green treatment is both correct and incorrect at the same time. Malachite green is converted into leucomalachite green, which has a weakened effect on Ichthyophthirius. This conversion is dependent on the pH value and takes place faster when the pH levels are higher than when they are low.

In addition, the filter bacteria have adapted to malachite green in the past decades, with the result that they decompose it faster today than they did in the past. This explains why the instructions for use involve multiple dosages at intervals of one or two days. If the infection is more severe, we recommend you use JBL Punktol (in the various forms) with full doses daily after a 50-60 % water change each time.

The white spots on the fish do not disappear after using JBL Punktol Ultra, JBL Punktol Ultra Forte, JBL Punktol Plus 125, JBL Punktol Plus 250, JBL Punktol Plus 1500?

The treatment of white spot disease (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) takes anywhere from 10 to 14 days in a warm water tank, depending on the temperature.

The active ingredients do not attack the parasite present on the fish, but instead attack the so-called swarmer stage.

The parasite leaves the fish after a few days and passes into a so-called bottom stage where it multiplies and produces the swarmers that infect the fish again. The active ingredients act against these swarmers.

That is why it is important to carry out the treatment for a sufficiently long time (i.e. continue after all of the white spots on the fish have disappeared.

Do you need a microscope to diagnose white spot disease?

This question isn’t as easy to answer as you’d expect. Of course white spot (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) is visible on the fish with the naked eye. But unfortunately there is a similar looking disease against which the white spot disease remedy is powerless: the velvet disease (Oodinium).
