Tricker's Protect-Ease is a mild treatment to help protect against the all present of parasites and bacteria which could cause ick and/or white cottony fungus. It contains EDTA to detoxify harmful heavy metals and chelate copper. This will protect against environmental stresses and imbalances and has a double-slime coat protection which soothes and promotes natural slime coat production. It will help wounds and abrasions heal, thereby reducing the possibility of infection and reinfection.

Use every seven days to help eliminate ick parasites and fungus bacteria before they can cause problems.

This contains some of the most highly Tricker recommended ingredients and used in our fish department: formalin, acriflavin and copper sulfate.

Use Protect-Ease once a week or when adding new fish or plants to the aquarium. It is not necessary to remove your carbon cartridge when adding.

About Tricker's
Store Hours
America's Oldest Water Garden Specialist established in 1892
In the 1920s and 1930s, William Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.

William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals that make water gardening easy and fun to do. Purchase with confidence at Tricker's.

William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's when he started hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, he earned a reputation as a leader in aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation, and we still do, today.
