35% PEROX-AID® is available in 55 Gallon Drums and 5 Gallon Carboys.
35% PEROX-AID® is a 35% Aquaculture grade hydrogen peroxide product that received FDA approval for use in aquaculture in January 2007. Prior to this, the FDA listed hydrogen peroxide as a Low Regulatory Priority (LRP) drug which allowed for the use of most any type of hydrogen peroxide. This has changed and currently 35% PEROX-AID® is the only hydrogen peroxide product which is FDA approved for use on fish. (see notices above, also see our "News" page). In some instances, 35% PEROX-AID®® may be a cost effective alternative to formalin for use on fish or fish eggs. Full instructions are available above.

The American Fisheries Society - Fish Culture Section's Working Group on Aquaculture Drugs, Chemicals, and Biologics (WGADCB) has published a Guide to Using Drugs, Biologics and Other Chemicals in Aquaculture. WGADCB have also developed a Treatment Calculator to assist in the dosage calculations of certain products.
The Guide is provided as an Adobe PDF file and the Treatment Calculator is offered as a Microsoft Excel 2007 file. Your computer must have installed either Microsoft Excel or any other program that will read and execute calculations of an Excel file.

*Although the calculator has been checked for accuracy and can be a useful tool to aid in calculating treatment dosages, the end user is responsible for correctly applying any regulated compound in aquaculture
