This triple hitting medicated flake is a great general treatment option when you are unsure what is ailing your fish. This medicated food includes three medications to cover a fairly wide spectrum of diseases that target aquarium fish in both freshwater and saltwater environments.
Kanamycin Sulfate is a highly effective broad spectrum antibiotic that is useful in controlling many bacterial infections, including Aeromonas, Vibrio, Flexibacter and Mycobacteria in both freshwater and saltwater environments.
Metronidazole most often used for its anti-protozoa properties, however it is also good for treating anaerobic bacteria as well. It is effective for treating internal and external flagellates as well as protozoan parasites such as Cryptocaryon in marine aquaria or against Hexamita and Ichthyophthirius.
Nitrofurazone is the active ingredient in Furan 2 and is an antibiotic that has anti-protozoan properties. It is known to target Columnaris, Flexibacter, Black Molly Disease (Flavobacterium columnaris), Bacterial Gill Disease, Aeromonas, Excess Body Slime, Cloudy Eye, Streptococcus, Furunculosis, Fin and Tail Rot, Marine external ulcer disease and some protozoan infestations. Useful in treating minor topical skin infections of freshwater and marine species.
When these three medications are used concurrently they are referred to as a super-drug due to the fact that they have a synergistic effect that makes them even more effective than when used on their own.
Treatment: Offer as the only food source, feeding as many times a day as is normal, for a minimum of 10 days. Due to the use of multiple antibacterial medications, monitor water parameters. If the cycle wobbles during treatment begin daily water changes. Can be repeated if necessary.
