Directions For Use:
Store between 50° and 100° F. Shake vigorously before use. Never handle fish
with dry hands, always sanitize hands before and after handling.
For Wounds On The Body Of The Fish: Working quickly and carefully, first
clean the wound* with a clean cotton-tip swab, cotton ball or paper toweling
wrapped around a finger; partially dry the wound taking care to not damage
adjacent healthy skin or scales on the fish; next apply enough gel to the
cleaned and dried are to completely cover the wound and some surrounding
tissue. Gently return the treated fish to the water; allow the fish to rest
with little movement to assure that the mass of the gel stays in contact
with the wound for as long as possible. Apply at least every 24 hours as
*Cleaning Of Large Wounds: May require the use of a blunt-tip tweezers or
forceps to remove dead and damaged skin or scales or patches of fungal
growth. Follow with swabbing with a cotton-tip swab, cotton ball or paper
toweling. The fish may be returned to the water immediately after cleansing
and before the necessary drying of the wound per the instructions above.
For Fin Rot: Carefully snip away the eroded tissue and apply the gel to the
cut edges of the fin. Be sure to spread the gel down on both sides of the
fin at least 1/4" (6mm) from the cut area.
For Lesions & Cysts: Proceed as for wounds; for raised lesions it may be
necessary to re-apply gel more frequently.
Note: Fish should not be held out of the water more than 30 to 60 seconds.
(non-air breathing fishes begin suffocating as soon as they are removed from
the water) It is necessary to work quickly and efficiently, and it may be
necessary for two or more people to assist. Large fish are quite powerful
and must be restrained. The use of a water-soaked, soft towel can be used to
hold and restrain larger fish. Be careful to never scrape the eyes. Do not
allow excessive amounts of gel to penetrate the fill cavity. Bio-BandageŽ
will stain skin, clothing, furniture and flooring as a result of the
methylene blue we use as an antiseptic.
