Maracyn® Plus (Freshwater/Saltwater) solution
For infections of: Fin and Tail Rot, Popeye, Mouth fungus, Dropsy (swollen body, protruding scales) and ulcers.
Maracyn® Plus contains two powerful antibiotics, Trimethoprin and a Sulfonamide. Biospheres® products make use of a revolutionary technology that delivers the antibiotic directly to the fish. Multi-layered microspheres attach to the fish and break down one layer at a time releasing the antibiotics in a controlled regulated manner. A filming agent, Chitosan, which has a molecular structure similar to the natural mucous coat of a fish, seals the treatment in contact with the tissue surface.
Maracyn® Plus is non-toxic to invertebrates. A slight reduction in biological activity will result from the use ofMaracyn® Plus. After treatment, carry out a partial water change and add FritzZyme® bacteria culture to boost the biological filter. Normal biological activity will resume afterMaracyn® Plus has been removed from the water. Partial water changes and fresh carbon in the filter are all suitable methods to remove Maracyn® Plus from the water.
Special note on Maracyn® Plus
Maracyn® Plus should not be used in conjunction with any other antibiotic treatments. Complete the full treatment and carry out a partial water change before using another antibiotic. Because of the unique action of the microspheres contained in BioSpheres® liquid products, care should be used when combining Maracyn® Plus with medications from other sources.
Follow dosage directions as detailed on the product packaging.
