Blue Planet Aquari-Cycline 25 Tablets
Blue Planet Aquari-Cycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic for the treatment of diseases in ornamental fresh and saltwater aquarium fish caused by tetracycline sensitive bacteria.
Aquari-Cycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic in tablet form, effective against a wide range of bacterial infections in fresh and saltwater aquariums. Formulated specifically for aquarium use with inert carriers which dissolve rapidly upon contact with water. The active constituent of Aquari-Cycline is ”Tetracycline Hydrochloride”, which is now legally available (S6) for use in ornamental fish.
Bacterial diseases can be devastating in aquariums and rank along with other water quality problems and protozoa as major causes of loss of aquarium fish. Aquari-Cycline is active against a wide range of Gram positive and Gram-negative bacteria including Aeromonas and Pseudomonas sp. At the recommended dose rate Aquari-Cycline is bacteriostatic against Bacterial Septicaemia, Coldwater Disease, Columnaris Disease (mouth fungus, cottonwool disease), Furunculosis, Fin and Tail Rot.
Treatment at the recommended dose rate for three days with subsequent partial water changes has not affected nitrification. However, prolonged treatment of mature aquariums with antibiotics will affect nitrifying bacteria. The use of a separate treatment tank is recommended where only a few fish are infected.

Each tablet contains 375mg Tetracycline.
