Kick-Ich™ is a copper free water treatment for the control and elimination of ich (a.k.a. "whitespot disease") on marine and freshwater fish. It has been scientifically formulated to treat the infectious stage of the ich lifecycle while being safe for all freshwater and marine aquaria. The product has been on the market for eighteen years, after three years of development and extensive testing, and has been unequivocally proven to be safe for all fish, corals, invertebrates and plants. Kick-Ich™, whether used alone or in combination with Rally™, has no impact on biological filtration. Kick-Ich™ is the safest and most effective product for treatment of Ich currently available. Kick-Ich™ has a long shelf life at room temperature and is supplied in easy to use, self-dosing bottles.
Yes. KICK-ICH™ is safe for all fish, corals, invertebrates and macroalgae, as well as the facultative anaerobes and nitrifying bacteria essential to biologic filtration.
KICK-ICH™`s safety has been widely proven in hobby and commercial applications. KICK-ICH™ contains precisely blended reagents, of certified pharmaceutical purity, whose specific ethods of action have been identified and confirmed in research and clinical laboratories around the world. It was therefore possible to develop KICK-ICH™ as a treatment focused specifically on the ich parasite, but without unwanted side effects and secondary activities. No previous manufacturer has been able to provide 5-nitroimidazole reagents in a neutral aqueous solution, nor in any aqueous solution that confers stability upon dissolved nitroimidazoles.
No Copper! Nor does KICK-ICH™ contain mysterious “natural ingredients” or other undefined “extracts” whose predictability is based largely on folklore. Finally, KICK-ICH™ contains no hyper-irritants (e.g. Tabasco sauce and similar hot pepper extract preparations) that induce super sliming, exfoliation of epidermal layers and attending extreme stress for the duration of the treatment period (Imagine there is no available shade and you have a 2nd degree sunburn!). Similarly, KICK-ICH™does not pretend to provide a one step treatment for the control of ich: given the choice of addressing spots on the fish, or controlling the progressive infection and reinfection of the fish, the KICK-ICH™ strategy is structured to treat infectious stage over the 12 – 15 day time course during which release of free swimming “tomites” from maturing trophonts in the aquarium peaks and declines. Fish that have been stripped of spots by hyper-irritants, with the attending secondary effects and stress, are especially vulnerable to reinfection by tomites that may be present in the water.
KICK-ICH™ can be used with RALLY™. In fact, the simultaneous use of KICK-ICH™ and RALLY™ is often recommended and is safe for all aquaria.
KICK-ICH™ can be used with phosphate and ammonia adsorbants, but not with activated carbon or related products. Use of KICK-ICH™ with antibiotics or other medications is not recommended.
KICK-ICH™ is stable for several years if stored at room temperature and out of direct strong light.
Do not freeze or store in the cold. Do not shake bottle prior to or during use and replace caps immediately after use.
The reagents in KICK-ICH™ are expensive to produce at commercial scale, even for applications requiring only technical or even industrial grade levels of purity; by comparison KICK-ICH™ contains the highest pharmaceutical grade available. The unique 1-liter and 2-liter bottles with calibrated dosing spouts are expensive to purchase and label, while staging and filling require unique, customized operations to meet long-term stability requirements. Finally, KICK-ICH™ must pass rigorous chemical quality control tests at every stage of production and packaging.
Turn off protein skimmers and UV sterilizers, also remove carbon filtration and any absorbent media that would remove Kick-Ich from the water. Dose on days 1, 4, 7, 10, and 13 for normal infections. For severe infection dose on days 1, 3, 5, 7, 10 and 13. Add two ounces of Kick-Ich per 25 gallons of total water volume including the filtration system.
Ruby Reef was incorporated in 1998 after three years of product development, product stability and beta site testing, and market testing by Dr. Sam Grillo. Ruby Reef`s products are based on both a high level of scientific acumen and efficacy, and a thorough understanding of both fish diseases and the associated problems experienced by aquarium hobbyists. Ruby Reef provides scientifically sound disease management products as good or better than any available to aquarium hobbyists.
DX18 Hybrid T5HO Dimmable Fixtures
The ultimate way to have both T5HO and LED lighting over your aquarium, the Aquatic Life DX18 Hybrid Fixture provides the platform for you to create the ideal lighting for corals and plants. With decades of experience growing corals and plants, seasoned hobbyists have realized that a combination of different light types works best over their aquarium. Like the metal halide lights of years ago, LED fixtures can provide high intensity, but without the operating cost. Also, like halide lights, LED’s are a point-source light, creating a shimmering effect in the aquarium. Combining LED light with T5HO fluorescent light provides the benefits of efficient intensity and diffused lighting – meaning no more shadows often seen with only LED lights. The patent pending Aquatic Life Hybrid fixture provides a means for you to combine your preferred LED fixture with controlled T5HO fluorescent lighting.
Pair popular LED fixtures with dimmable T5HO lighting - Accommodates popular LED fixtures like AI Hydra 26 & Hydra 52, EcoTech Radion XR15w & XR30w, Kessil A360X, A360WE, AP700, and more! 0-10 Volt input allows popular controllers, like APEX, to adjust the T5HO light intensity
The Reef Octopus Light Reactor is a natural filter which utilizes macroalgae like Chaetomorpha to absorb and remove algae-producing nutrients from your aquarium's water. As macro algae grows, it will consume nutrients in the water. Once you harvest the macro algae, the nutrients are then removed from your system.
Besides being a all natural approach to filtration, Algae reactors also provide a safe haven for copepods and Anphipods.
The Reef Octopus Light Reactor's unique triangular waterproof LED light (IP67 Certified) strip inside the reactor maximizes light exposure for the algae with 360 degree coverage, aiding growth and nutrient consumption. The close proximity of the high-output LED strip gets as much light to the macro algae as possible and quickly grows the macro algae.
Features & Benefit
Our LR Reactors are made with the most robust material to ensure that they adhere above the industry standards of keeping in shape and watertight. With our unique Triangular LEDs placement eradicating blind spots couple with optimum spectrum guarantees a quicker growth rate.
Harvest timeline can be easily controlled via the adjustable light intensifier should you wish to slow down the growth rate. Bundled with a 3 Tiers Strainer Basket to make harvesting a breeze.
