Virkon® Aquatic does not contain an indicator dye or perfume as found in Virkon-S. The dye and perfume have been removed to make the product more suitable for use around fish and other aquatic life. Virkon® Aquatic has a formulation based on the same active ingredients as Virkon-S but with inert ingredients that are designed for use in aquatic applications.
