          Comments about KanaPlex - 5 g:

          Somehow my fish came down with a relatively bad case of collumnaris. I used some weaker antibiotics in the meantime to halt the disease, but this thing outright cleared it. A neon tetra that was essentially swiming tilted and I was sure wouldn't make it cleared up within 2 days and is still alive and well today.

          Another great thing about it, is that the collumnaris bacteria do not build up immunity to this antibiotic, so even if there'll be another breakout later, it will still work.

          Doesn't stain water, dissolves perfectly clear. Doesn't adversely affect plants and invertebrates. I used it in a planted tank with shrimp and snails. No casualties in any of those.

              From what I've read and experienced first hand with a few cases of fish with visible (what I believed to be) bacterial infections, I've found this to be a very potent and effective antibiotic. My fish have made full recoveries, and this is a medication that I like to have on hand as I feel it's a good alternative to the possibly overused Maracyn/Maracyn 2 combination that's somewhat more widely available in pet shops.

                      A:

                      Kanaplex can be used in aquariums that house frogs and invertebrates. However this product has not been tested with every single type of frog or invertebrate or in every possible condition. Due to this reason it would be highly recommended to use Seachem Focus to fuse Seachem KanaPlex to the fish food. This in turn will allow the medication to work more efficiently with better results and less risk of your other livestock in the aquarium. If you have other questions please feel free to contact our technicians at 1-888-824-4257.
