    The parasites should start to fall off around days 7 - 11, and you might start to see some improvement. The parasite will then go on to complete it's life cycle within the substate. Hopefully the fish will have recovered from whatever stress lead it to become more susceptable, and although ich is still in the system the symptoms should subside.

    It did not kill the Marine Ich, you still have it in your system. There are a lot of researcher and experts that would be thrilled if it did.

    Ich is always present in any system we all know that. Herbtana is an immune system booster, it helps fish fight off the parasite. So if you say it's "snake oil" how do you explain for my fish's survival when I used it in my system? Believe me I've been in this hobby for a long time and I've tried everything with no success. But after giving Herbtana a try I'm sold. There is no harm in trying. Just my 2 cents.

    A lot of researcher, marine biologist and experts would be thrilled if it killed Marine Ich. If it's intended use is to solely boost the immune system than fine. Other than that is should not be considered a treatment for ich.

    Yes but I have had several outbreaks and never used anything to treat, just garlic in their food, yet all my fish have survived. All I am saying is how do you know your fish didn't get better on there own? Its been the topic of many debate.
