Dosage instructions and method of administration

Shake well before use. Follow the instructions below unless prescribed otherwise:
Day 1:      Add 40 drops (2 ml) of hexamor 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 cool in a container with aquarium water.
Day 2:      Add 30 drops (1.5 ml) of hexamor 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 - 5: Do not add any medication to the water. Feed the fish as normal.
Day 6:      Add 30 drops (1.5 ml) of hexamor 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 cool in a container with aquarium water.
Day 7:      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. In this case partially wash the filtration media out with lukewarm water - but not too thoroughly in order to retain some of the microorganisms.
