Not working for me.

I have a Sailfin Tang that developed an infection on a fin that eroded most of the fin and developed a white cottony ball at the base of the fin. So far I have treated the tank 5 times to no avail. My corals are very unhappy about the treatment and are showing their displeasure by not opening very much. Today I am switching to E.M. ERYTHROMYCIN and will treat the tank for the next two days and report. My tank is a 92 gallon reef tank. I have been treating a dose of 8 packets each time. It gets expensive real fast. I have changed the water twice so far as directed on the package. I hope I don't lose the fish and hurt all the other inhabitants in the treatment process.

Great for ZoaPox!

Bought this to dip some stressed zoo's I had. Turns out I had A LOT of zoanthid pests roaming around but the good news is I patrol my reef like a cop on the beat. My tank is a small 6g fluval edge, so it is not much to patrol but I am very obervant and all my zoo colonies are near the top. Sucked all the pests one by one and dipped every frag where the pest was found using a coral dip (iodine). Anyway, these pests stressed my colonies and read on many forums that Furan-2 was the ultimate treatment for zoapox, boy were they right! Pox were gone about a week after 3 day consecutive baths. I noticed pox still affect the zoo's, but it doesn't seem to bother them, they just are vulnerable when stressed. Use 1/4 teaspoon for 32oz water and on third bath use 1/2 for 32oz water.

Furan-2

I use Furan-2 to get rid of the horrible green slime algae that likes to plague my freshwater aquarium. I follow all of the directions and the problem is solved.

Furan 5

I used this product to treat Zoanthid Pox, this product is not designed for this treatment but its one of the only cures for Zoa Pox(zoa pox can wipe out all Zoanthid corals in a tank if not treated). After two treatments the zoa pox cleared up and are now looking great.

A great internal parasite cure

For quick treatment of internal parasites that can be hard to rid your fish of, Furan 2 (which contains the key to real parasite butt-kicking - Metronidazole) is the best thing there is. It is readily absorbed into the body of the fish, and kills the parasites safely and without undue stress. I always have this product on hand, and I can't reccomend it enough.

Discus Plague

I was an idiot and purchased 2" (more like 1" fry) discus from an online fish store I had never purchased from before. The purchase consisted of 2 Aqua Green Scribbles, 2 Baby Blue Pandas, 2 Brilliant Blue Diamonds, 2 Ruby Reds and a Peppermint Plecostomus. The When I opened the bags, the first thing I noticed was one of the Green Scribbles was floating on his side. I thought he had been injured, but put all of the fish in my isolation tank just to be on the safe side. The other scribble, pandas and blues started showing symptoms immediately. The first scribble was dead within 3 days, and I guess I didn't disinfect my nets and somehow transferred the disease to my display discus tank and my breeders. My female 7" heckle was dead overnight. Her symptoms were first darkening of color, almost black, the pale to white, film over eyes, and blotchy coloring with sloughing of her entire mucous coating. I had encountered Discus Plague back in the 1980's and knew what I was dealing with. The spread was rapid and lethal. I ordered the Furan-2 along with General Cure and Triple Sulfa. The main active ingredients I was looking for were Nitrofurazone and Metronidazole. I've used the pills before without much success due to the slow solubility rate. This stuff started working within 8 HOURS! I had Rio Rubus floating on their sides and 10:00 am and by 6:00 pm, they were swimming upright and taking food! The combination I used was full doses of the Furan 2 and General cure, and 1/2 dose of the Triple Sulfa. The results speak for themselves. If anyone has dealt with Discus Plague or are a Discus breeder-keeper, I would keep a stockload of this stuff on hand. It is in my opinion absolutely amazing!
