eSHa -ndx works against parasitic nematodes like Camallanus, Capillaria, Pseudocapillaria, Eustrongylides, Oxyuris etc. Roundworms are generally found in the intestines of the fish and some can be visible to the eye.

  • You can use eSHa -ndx to treat freshwater and marine aquariums.
  • eSHa -ndx is well tolerated by plants and filters.

You may continue to filter over non-adsorbing materials such as filter-wool, sand, gravel, etc. Always remove chemical ‘active’ filter media such as (fresh) activated carbon, UV (lights), oxidisers, resins and protein skimmers, as these can have a diminishing effect on the action of eSHa -ndx. Keep filters running day and night.

For freshwater and marine aquaria
Treat marine fish in a quarantine aquarium and turn off the skimmer for the first 4 hours and turn off the UV for the first 24 hours.

In cases with little or no improvement a 50% water change is recommended without dechlorinators or oxidisers, after which the treatment can be repeated. If any unknown complication occurs immediatelyeither transfer the fish to another aquarium or do a partial water change and / or filter over fresh activated carbon and contact your expert retailer.

If you want to use another treatment straight after using eSHa -ndx, you can remove all components by filtering over fresh activated carbon or perform a major water change.

Overdosing
It is not recommended to add more than the advised dosage when using eSHa -ndx.

Extended treatment
After 24 hours of the first treatment, siphon the bottom, clean the filter and perform a 50% water change. As an alternative you can siphon the bottom, filter over fresh activated carbon and change 20% of the water. In case of oviparous nematodes, repeat the treatment 14 days after the first dosage to eradicate the hatched eggs. In special cases (e.g. if problems persist) treatment can be repeated after another 2 weeks.

It is generally not necessary to do a water change before using eSHa -ndx. However, there are a few exceptions where a partial water change should be carried out before treating the aquarium:

  1. In the case of poor water quality. Regular testing with eSHa AQUA-QUICK-TEST can identify water quality problems in time to take corrective action when needed;
  2. If you are close to your regular water change;
  3. If using any waterconditioners (see general questions: how can I safely add tap water when doing a water change, without adding (too much) water conditioner?);
  4. If you have just used or are using another treatment: 2 x 40% water changes should be carried out over a period of two days + appropriate filtering (i.e. carbon).


Replacing some of the water during or after treatment effectively removes some of the treatment. Compensate by adding a proportional amount of medication after a water change.

When starting treatment, we recommend to not feed on the first day and feed half the normal amount on the second day. In the next 3 days, gradually increase the amount back to normal.

  1. To treat the disease organisms and conditions, perform a 1 day dosage of eSHa -ndx. Calculate the volume of your aquarium (only the area occupied by water). You can use the Dosage Calculator to calculate the correct dosage.
  2. Add drops of eSHa -ndx to your aquarium by holding the bottle upside down and squeezing the pipette (100 drops = 4.4 ml).
  3. After 24 hours siphon the bottom, clean the filter and perform a 50% water change. As an alternative you can siphon the bottom, filter over fresh activated carbon and change 20% of the water.
  4. In case of oviparous nematodes, repeat the treatment 14 days after the first dosage to eradicate the hatched eggs. In special cases (e.g. if problems persist) treatment can be repeated after another 2 weeks.

After an illness we strongly recommend that you give your fish a daily dose of eSHa OPTIMA, to keep them in good health. eSHa OPTIMA is a unique combination of the essential components found in tropical rivers, lakes and streams. These components are blended with trace elements, minerals, vitamins and natural growth enhancers to give your fish what they are accustomed to in their natural environment. eSHa OPTIMA stimulates and supports the natural immune defences and speeds up full recovery from illness.

For marine aquariums we strongly recommend to give your fish a dose of MINAROLL after an illness. MINAROLL is a blend of trace elements, vitamins and minerals, designed to keep your fish in the best of health. It stimulates and supports the natural immune defences and it speeds up a full recovery from illness. It can also be used in freshwater aquariums.

We do not recommend using other eSHa products while using eSHa -ndx.

Never combine eSHa products with products from other brands, unless the manufacturer specifically states that it is safe to do so.

Over the years, we have been receiving many questions about eSHa -ndx and we have decided to answer them in this video!
