New Life Spectrum, a purveyor of fish foods has two new products Ick Shield and Hex Shield. Each of these foods actually has something hidden inside: fish medicine. The first Ick Shield does what you might expect and combats aquarium ectoparasites such as Ich, velvet disease, black ich and more and is being billed as “far less toxic to reefs and planted aquariums.”
Hex shield on the other hand combats aquarium intestinal parasites or wasting diseases and is ideal for newly acquired fish and the like. These two new medicines are of course dependent on your fish eating—if they aren’t you are better treating the whole water supply like some have done for aeons. New Life spectrum has not release pricing and general availability at the time of writing.
