MarOxy Mardel Laboratories, Inc.

Indications: MarOxy slowly releases small amounts of stabilized oxygen-chlorine combination which, when used as directed, has an unusual ability to treat wide variety of tropical fish diseases, especially fungal infections and certain common bacterial infections.  Fungal infections are difficult to treat in humans as well as animals.  True Fungus in fections require strong, often toxic medications to successfully control them.
Until the development of MarOxy, most fungus problems affecting fish could not be successfully treated without possible harm to the fish.  MarOxy succesfully controls fungus infections caused by Saprolegnia, Ichthyosporidium, egg fungus, and related species, and safely controls fungus infections.

Administration and Dosage: Use one-half teaspoon for each ten gallons (37.85 liters) of water.  Repeat once a day as needed for five days.  Use of a hospital tank is recommended.  MarOxy does not color the water.

Precautions:  Any sudden change in aquarium conditions can be hazardous.  Make changes gradually.  In tanks sealed with silicone, some staining may occur.  Do not overdose.  Keep this out of the reach of children.  For aquarium use only.  This product is intended for exclusive use with ornamental fish and/or other ornamental organisms and is not intended for use with fish for human consumption.

Active Ingredients: Not stated; however some people may have a reaction to MarOxy even though it is deemed "non-toxic".  Antidotes are as follows:  External Antidote-Flood skin with plenty of water.  If irritation persists, get medical attention.  For eyes--flush with plenty of water and call physician immediately. Internal Antidote-Drink large quantities of milk.  Call physician immediately.

Notes from Mardel on biological filtration:  "Nitrobacter and Nitrosomonas are recognized as the primary beneficial bacteria present in the biological filtration system of any aquarium.  Some drugs which treat fish diseases and parasitic infestations are harmful to these 'good' bacteria.  When the biological filter is upset, there is a buildup of ammonia and nitrite concentrations resulting in fish distress and death.  Mardel products have been tested with known strains of these bacteria with no adverse effects noted.  When used as directed, they do not interfere with the biological filter."
