Directions for Use
As a bath: Start the bath treatment with as large a partial water change as possible in the pond to be treated, or start with a new water that has been conditioned with MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme. Do not stop filtration but remove activated carton and stop foam-fractionation ("protein skimming"). Add enough MICROBE-LIFT/Praziquantel to produce a dosage of 2.5 mg/L (9,4625 mg/gal; 946.25 mg/100 gal); vigorously shake the dosage with at least 1 quart of water for 3-5 minutes to produce a slurry. Pour the slurry intot a 5 gallon bucket of water and mix well. Then distribute the mixture around the edge of the pond or pour into the pond filter or skimmer to achieve maximum distribution in the water. A single treatment of 7 days is usually sufficient. Do not use any other drugs or treatments.
In feed: To each 100 grams (3.5 oz.) of dry feed (flake, granular or pellet) thoroughly mix in 400 mg of MICROBE-LIFT/Praziquantel. Moisten the dry mixture with 25 to 50 mL of grain alcohol (190⁰ ethanol) for each 100 grams of dry feed; gently blend the moistened mixture to incorporate the Praziquantel into the feed. Feed the medicated feed daily for 5 to 7 days. Allow the mixture to air dry (do not heat), break up any clumps, package and store in a cool, dry place.
