Dosage instructions and method of administration

Shake well before use. Follow the instructions below unless prescribed otherwise:
Day 1: Add 60 drops (3 ml) of dessamor to the aquarium for each 100 l of water and stir to distribute. Do not feed the fish. Remove the filter from the aquarium and place it over a separate container to continue running in order to keep the microorganisms in the filter. Oxygenate the aquarium water. If the water cannot be oxygenated without operating the filter then we recommend running the filter without filtration media in order to ensure sufficient water circulation. In this case keep the filtration media coolin a container with aquarium water.
Day 2: Add 30 drops (1.5 ml) of dessamor to the aquarium for each 100 l of water and stir to distribute. Do not feed the fish.
Day 3: Do not add any medication to the water. Feed the fish as normal. Put the filter back into operation. If the filtration media has been stored separately then the water must not be put back in the aquarium. In this case partially wash the filtration media out with lukewarm water — but not too thoroughly in order to retain some of the microorganisms.
Day 4 — 6: Do not add any medication to the water. Feed the fish as normal.
Day 7: Follow the instructions for Day 1.

Day 8: Do not add any medication to the water. Feed the fish as normal. Change approx. 30% of the aquarium water. Put the filter back into operation. If the filtration media has been stored separately then the water must not be put back in the aquarium. Inthis case partially wash the filtration media out with lukewarm water — but not too thoroughly in order to retain some of the microorganisms.
As a preventive measure following stress situations, half of the stated doses should be administered

Special precautions for storage

– Do not use after the use-by date has expired.
