Aquari-Cycline is a broad spectrum Antibiotic in tablet form effective against a wide range of bacterial infections in fresh and saltwater aquariums. Aquari-Cycline tablets are formulated specifically for aquarium use with inert carriers which dissolve rapidly upon contact with water. The active constituent of Aquari-Cycline is "Tetracycline Hydrochloride".
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 Grampositive and Gram-negative bacteria including Aeromomas 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 effected 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.
