Fish do not just need extra care during illness, recovery or quarantine, they need a level of general care. This care should be aimed at maximising your fish’s resistance against infections, parasites, injuries and disease. A daily dosage with eSHa OPTIMA will optimise your aquarium water and your fish’s condition will improve. eSHa OPTIMA will also help reduce the number of fish that would otherwise die because of disease.

eSHa OPTIMA has many uses:

  1. Strengthens and supports your fish’s natural immune defence against bacteria, parasites and disease;
  2. Reduces fish stress and enhances fish development;
  3. Speeds up a full recovery from illness;
  4. Strengthens bones and develops muscles;
  5. Helps fish display their natural vibrant and vivid colours;
  6. Helps young fish to grow healthy and colourful;
  7. Helps newly purchased fish recover from their weakened condition (a result of transportation);
  8. Increases reproductive activity and aids spawning / release of eggs.
  • You can use eSHa OPTIMA with tropical and coldwater fish.
  • Do not use eSHa OPTIMA with marine fish! 
  • eSHa OPTIMA is very well tolerated by fish, plants and filters. 


eSHa OPTIMA poses no threat to fish, plants or filters. eSHa OPTIMA gives excellent results, especially with tropical fish.

Filtering
You may continue to filter over non-adsorbing materials such as filter-wool, sand, gravel, etc. Always remove chemical ‘active’ filter media such as (fresh) activated carbon, UV (lights), oxidisers, resins and protein skimmers, as these can have a negative influence on the action of eSHa OPTIMA. Keep filters running day and night.

Overdosing
Overdosing is not recommended, however, eSHa OPTIMA remains non-toxic (under normal conditions) if more than the recommended dose is accidentally added.

Other treatments (from other manufacturers)
Never combine treatments unless the manufacturer specifically states that it is safe to do so.

It is generally not necessary to do a water change before using eSHa OPTIMA. However, there are a few exceptions where a partial water change should be carried out before treating the aquarium:

  1. In the case of poor water quality. Regular testing with eSHa AQUA-QUICK-TEST can identify water quality problems in time to take corrective action when needed;
  2. If you are close to your regular water change;
  3. If using any waterconditioners (see general questions: how can I safely add tap water when doing a water change, without adding (too much) water conditioner?);
  4. If you have just used or are using another treatment: 2 x 40% water changes should be carried out over a period of two days + appropriate filtering (i.e. carbon).


Replacing some of the water during or after treatment effectively removes some of the treatment. Compensate by adding a proportional amount of medication after a water change.

  1. To treat the disease organisms and conditions, use a daily dose of eSHa OPTIMA. Calculate the volume of your aquarium (only the area occupied by water). You can use the Dosage Calculator to calculate the correct dosage.
  2. Add drops of eSHa OPTIMA to your aquarium by holding the bottle upside down and squeezing the pipette (20 drops = 1 ml).

eSHa OPTIMA can be used with all other freshwater eSHa products!

You may notice a flake-like sediment forming in your bottle of eSHa OPTIMA. This can form under certain conditions, because eSHa OPTIMA contains no artificial preservatives. The sediment is a natural compound, is totally harmless and will not affect the performance of eSHa OPTIMA. The sediment dissolves harmlessly in you aquarium.

eSHa OPTIMA creates a more natural environment and this often results in increased sexual drive, spawning behaviour and release of eggs. By carrying out your usual water change (20 – 25% should be sufficient) and then administering a standard dose of eSHa OPTIMA, spawning behaviour can be induced.

* ATTENTION: BE AWARE!

In case you do not have a normal aquarium, you have to adjust the dosage accordingly. For example, if you have large amounts of rocks, stones or other deco material the dosage needs to be decreased. If you have an oversized external filter the dosage needs to be increased.

ATTENTION:

Your aquarium is smaller than 30 liters, this is smaller than the average aquarium, please check your parameters. If your parameters are correct, you can continue calculating your dosage.

ATTENTION:

Your aquarium is larger than 300 liters, this is larger than the average aquarium, please check your parameters. If your parameters are correct, you can continue calculating your dosage.
