Antibiotic recommended for the treatment of Popeye, fin and tail rot, gill disease and secondary infections.Primarily effective against gram-negative pathogenic bacterial diseases of fish. Symptoms of clamped fins, general listlessness, not eating or other unusual behavior can be caused by internal infections and treatment with Tetracycline would be indicated. Tetracycline is recommended for the treatment of Popeye, gill disease, fin and tail rot and secondary infections. All suspected bacterial infections should be treated immediately.Tetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic which has been shown to be effective against a number of pathogenic bacteria associated with ornamental fish disease. Tetracycline may turn the water red and a foam may collect on the water surface. It will not interfere with the biological filter. New activated carbon or charcoal and partial water changes after treatment will remove any remaining color resulting from treatment. Available in tablet and powder form. Tablets and powder should be dropped into the tank (not the filter). The tablets and powder dissolve and circulate through the water. For use in freshwater tanks only. Active Ingredients: Each tablet and powder packet contains 250 mg Tetracycline hydrochloride activity.

Took two treatments

posted 6 years ago

we actually had to do two rounds of treatment. One of our 3 fish shops had such a great health rate we didn't quarantine one of our purchases. Of course, we had popeye. One barb lost an eye, but after 2 rounds of treatment it was cleared up. Lesson learned on this one.

Pros: Did help with the popeye

Cons: Can't think of any

A good all-around antibiotic.

posted 7 years ago

This is a good all-around wide spectrum antibiotic. Good for a variety of small fish diseases, does an excellent job of clearing things up as long as you don't over-use it.

Pros: This is a good all-around wide spectrum antibiotic.

Cons: The tank has to be sick to need the product ... I'd say that's a con.

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
