DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE M – Slow sinking high-quality complete food containing the valuable alkaloids matrine and oxymatrine from the plant Sophora flavescens. It acts as a repellent, promoting healthy fish. The mucous membrane of the skin is stimulated and leads to more protection.


DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE contains the valuable alkaloids matrine and oxymatrine from the plant Sophora flavescens (Chinese: “Ku Shen”).

DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE is a valuable component of the BASSLEER-ANTI-ICH-METHOD. It acts as a repellent and ensures that parasites such as Ichthyophthirius or Cryptocarion will fall off from the fish and then floating freely in the aquarium can be better detected by a medicinal treatment.

DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE is offered in different granule sizes M, L, XL, XXL and 3XL. Granulated food in the form slowly sinking and therefore feeds in all three water zones. This means that surface feeders as well as fish in the middle zone and ground fish receive equally fresh and wholesome food.

  • Feed DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE during the medicinal treatment for 7 days. Fresh water white spot (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) and marine ICH (Cryptocaryon irritans) will be cured after these 7 days.
  • If infected by the “New White Spot” Ichthyophthirius schlotfeldti, continue to feed DR. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD MATRINE for 10 – 30 days. Adult ICH trophont will drop from fish and ICH tomite (“baby Ichthyophthirius”) will not attach to fish.
  • Increase temperature by 2 – 3 °C (to 26 – 28 °C if suitable for kept fish – for Discus: 30 – 33 °C). Ensure high oxygen levels.
  • Increase efficiency of filtration by higher flow. Use a fine physical filter (< 300 µm) and UV-light to collect and kill ICH parasites. Regular filter cleaning. Exhaust suction should be 5 cm from the bottom of the aquarium to collect ICH tomont.
  • Siphoning bottom of aquarium 2 x per day (morning and evening) to remove ICH tomonts and young ICH parasites.
  • 24 hours light will decrease the development of ICH tomites. Warning: Some invertebrates do not tolerate continuous light.
