I dose late evening and wait 2/3 days before switching the UV back on. (the trace of green has gone)

is that too early / late?

have you noticed....It's warm out there...!!!

Mick,
Is it acriflavine that you are using?

If so I think you are possibly under dosing , if you only had a trace of green.


When I treat it takes ages and lots of water changes to change the dark grass green colour of the pond to normal..

Can you still use Verkon when cleaning filters and using acriflavin?

Thanks - Rob

Please see Laura's reply.

as it is, I don't use Virkon when using another treatment...wait a week, then use after a filter clean as per advice given to me...

Yes - I can now spell Acriflavine !! (O level England here)


It's NT labs I'm using and is a more of an Alien "VW Viper Green " colour when applied.

The green colour fades in about a day and a half, then I put the UV back on.

Please see reply to Laura on dosage.

Acriflavine powder some useful info here on doseage :-

www.koicarp.org.uk/medications%20and%20their%20uses.htm#Acriflavine_and_Acriflavine_derivates

It will not be mildly green at this dose. Might knock your filter back.
