Thomas Labs Manufacturer Description:
Fish Flox (Ciprofloxacin) is a synthetic broad spectrum antibiotic that is effective against gram-negative and some gram-positive bacterial pathogens of fish, e.g. aeromonads, flexibacteria, vibrios.
Use for: Columnaris infections (Fin Rot, Saddleback, and Black Patch Necrosis Syndromes), Freshwater and Saltwater Furuncolosis (skin ulcers, systemic disease). Because it inhibits unique target enzymes needed for bacterial replication and DNA repair, it may be effective against bacteria unresponsive to other antibiotics.
Dosage & Administration
Pre-dissolve one tablet (250 mg) per gallon of water in a small amount of water prior to adding to a hospital tank. Immerse for one hour. Repeat every day for 5-7 days with daily water changes after each treatment. Ciprofloxacin chelates divalent cations water hardness (increase dose for marine fish) and high divalent cations in diet. Its activity decreases with high pH (>6.9). It can be bacteriostatic or bactericidal depending on the effective concentration at the target site.
Keep out of reach of children. For aquarium use only. Intended for ornamental fish and/or ornamental organisms, and not intended for use with fish for human consumption.
