Klinik Anti-Septic External Medication for Fish
It is not uncommon for fish to develop wounds, infections, legions that may require medication. In most cases, wounds will heal up by themselves if the water quality is good. Being a fisherman here in the UK, I enjoy going fishing in local lakes and ponds, I care very much for their welfare and would never intentionally put a fish at risk from developing infection or injury. Therefore I carry at all times an anti-septic medication called Klin-ik that if needed can be applied to the fish when it's out of the water. Normally the fish they catch are in good condition and medication is only required occasionally for areas where the hook has been.
Klinik is marketed towards carp which is why most people who keep tropical fish may not have heard of it. However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with using it on your Oscars, in fact I recently used it on one of my Red Oscars when it developed some very nasty legions on either side of its head. To be honest, I have no idea why the Oscar suddenly started developing these horrible rooms, my water is always kept in pristine condition so I was rolling out water quality problems. Having said this, from my experience Oscars can sometimes ailments for no reason at all, they are just the sort of fish that seem susceptible. Now these legions continued to worsen over a three or four week period, I did everything I could including calling the vet out, not so much to diagnose the problem, more to enable me to maybe get some medication that is only available from the veterinarian here in the UK, well that was a complete waste of time and I will never waste my money calling a veterinarian out again. Then I remembered I had a bottle of Klinik in my tackle box so I thought I might as well give it a go. After a struggle catching the Oscar, we applied the medication to both wounds, kept the Oscar out of the water for a couple of minutes so the antibiotic medication had a chance to soak into the area properly. Even a couple of days after applying the antibiotic, the wounds stopped getting worse and now four weeks later are 95% better. I think it's too much of a coincidence to say that Klinic was not directly responsible for having a dramatic effect on the Oscars condition.
To be honest, I have no idea whether Klinik is sold outside of the United Kingdom, for this reason I have included a link to an online shop here in the UK where you can obtain this antibiotic medication. I've also included the description for you to read. If this particular online store will not ship abroad, Google "Klin-ik or Klinik carp UK" and you will find numerous outlets here in the UK that sell this product, one of them is sure to ship outside of the UK.

Klin-ik Shield Gel
Klin-ik Shield is a high viscosity gel that acts as an antibacterial plaster for all species of fish. When applied correctly the gel is remarkably resilient to water and will not instantly wash off. Shield is specifically formulated to bond to tissue and remain in place for a considerable period of time. In tank test the gel was evident 72 hours after application. Easy to apply it can be used on its own or for the very best results used in conjunction with Klin-ik Solution.
What does it do?
Shield creates a robust barrier to protect newly exposed tissue. Once applied it prevents harmful bacteria and micro parasitic organisms from attacking the wound and taking root. Shield offers the perfect medication to treat damaged fins, recent scale loss, and fresh body lesions, post spawning damage and hook holds. Any recent external body damage will greatly benefit from the treatment of Shield and help promote new growth.
How do you use it?
Before application remove excess moisture by using a soft tissue to gently dry the intended area. Apply a small amount directly to the wound. Using finger or cotton bud spread the gel to form a thin robust lasting barrier.
Why should I use it?
Shield has all the ingredients of Klin-ik but produced in an extremely sticky gel base. It will not penetrate effectively to the base of hook holds as efficiently as Klin-ik solution, which is why it makes the perfect secondary treatment. Shields superb adhesion to tissue ensures the barrier will remain on the fish long enough for the medication to be effective.
Klin-ik solution will completely sterilize the intended area in seconds. For hook-holds and hard to reach places first sterilize with a few drops of Klin-ik solution before applying Shield. Klin-ik solution is an extremely searching medication that will penetrate and cleanse right down to the base of the hook-hold ensuring it is completely sterilised.
