This is NOT Pharmaceutical grade! That would be Illegal, since you would need a prescription!
This is for for aquarium and ornamental fish only.
This is a One and Done treatment
Chloroquine Phosphate is great for general quarantine of marine fish.
You can check out the most recent article on Advanced Aquarist By Jay Hemdal Chloroquine: A “New” Drug for Treating Fish Disease
There are also some other media/books that talk about using chloroquine phosphate as treatment “The marine fish health and feeding handbook”. The authors are Bob Goemans and Lance Ichinotsubo. It’s a 2008 release and its ISBN number is: ISBN 978-1-890087-95-1. It’s a TFH publication.
There are plenty of threads on Reef2Reef & Reef Central that people talk about its use for proper quarantine.
Chloroquine Phosphate is a replacement for both copper sulfate and quinine and it is superior to copper sulfate and all quinine salts. Chloroquine is used as a bacteriacide, an alagecide and as an antimalarial. It is superior in the fight against ICH, slimness of the skin and flukes and can be used as both a treatment and a preventative.
Typical dosage for quarantine is 40mg/Gallon (app. 1/8th tsp./10gallon) for ten days. This is a one dose treatment.
Quarantine should be done in a sterilized QT/Hospital tank with fresh mixed water, as there are some bacteria that can develop in your existing saltwater system that can break down the Chloroquine Phosphate and reduce concentration below therapeutic levels.
If water changes need to be performed to reduce ammonia, then chloroquine phosphate needs to be redosed for amount of water changed.
10g treats 250 gallons…25g treats 625 gallons…50g treats 1250 gallons….100g treats 2500 gallons.
For treatment of existing Cryptocaryon irritans(ich), Amyloodinium ocellatum (marine velvet) and brooklynella (brook) up to 80mg/gallon (app.1/4th tsp./10gal) can be used.
