Fritz Aquatics Mardel Herbal Treatments are a way to provide a natural force field of sorts for your fish by repairing and strengthening their natural slime coat and battling certain maladies as well.
There are three products under this umbrella Protoshield, Parashield and BacterShield that are all natural, herbal bio-adhesive supplements to repair and strengthen the fish’s natural slime coat. Why does this matter? A healthy slime coat acts as the first line of defense for fish against bacterial and fungal infections.
The natural oils are combined with a polymer that acts as a slime coat and carries the oils to the body of the fish. A protein solubilizer helps get the oils into the cell structure of the skin to do its magic and uses what Fritz calls biospheres technology to protect the key ingredients to ensure they maintain contact and can get to work.
