Seachem

MetroPlex™ is an effective and safe treatment for several protozoan and anaerobic bacterial diseases of fish (Cryptocaryon, Hexamita, Ichthyophthirius). It does not adversely affect the filter bed and is easily removed with carbon. There is little danger of overdosing. Usual dose is 125 mg/10 gallons.

DIRECTIONS: Use 1-2 measures (included) for every 40 L (10 US gallons). Repeat every 2 days for up to 3 weeks or until symptoms disappear. Turn off UV, ozone, and chemical filtration. To feed, blend 1 measure with about 1 tablespoon of frozen food paste. To minimize loss during feeding use with Focus™. To enhance palatability use with GarlicGuard™ or Entice™. Food may be refrozen.

Active ingredients: metronidazole (70%)Inactive ingredients: excipients (30%)

* Please note Metronidazole is packaged by weight, not volume. It is normal for the container to be less than half full due to this. Depending on the duration of treatment, multiple containers may be required.

Metroplex User

My marine tank had a case of Ich, so I tried Metroplex. I have another week to go with the treatments , but the fish are doing well. The Ich seems cleared up with no visible signs. I will treat an extra week just to be on the safe side, because the Ich cycle can be last about 28 days. This product does what it claims, and is not as toxic to the fish. It's definitely worth trying. Another quality product from Seachem. Thanks Marine Depot for great service.

Great Potent Stuff

This is one of the only places in US where you can find the original and actual Metroplex. It is much stronger and better, faster acting than Sulfaplex and works much better. Thanks Marine Depot for getting it to me quick and easy.

DRUG OF CHOICE

Metronidazole is the drug of choice to treat infections caused by the flagellated protozoans Amyloodinium ocellatum (velvet), Hexamita and Spironucleus. Metronidazole is also very effective for treatment of infections caused by ciliated protozoans including Cryptocaryon irritans (ich), Brooklynella hostilis (clownfish disease) and Uronema marinum, although chloroquine (an anti-malarial drug now available in some products for the aquarist) is a more effective treatment for ciliates. Metronidazole is also effective for treatment of certain anaerobic bacterial infections such as some eye infections (angelfish and butterflyfish appear to be especially prone to this type of eye infection). Because of its antibacterial actions, metronidazole may have some effect on the anaerobic bacteria of the filter bed, although this is minimal. Metronidazole is not harmful to any invertebrates and is safe for use in reef tanks.

great product

Hi this in my first review but wanted to say i bought it because had trouble with my african cichlids getting stressed an getting the bloat.I bought this product to help treat the healthy fish from getting the bloat since Afircan cichlids can be stressful with each other at times. So i been using it as a prevention rather than a cure since my fish tank is 210 gallons and thats a lot of water to treat... so what i do is get a little of aquarium water in a cup add pellets some frozen peas that I chopped up an keep in refrigerator a TINY Bit of MetroPlex an Focus and a little bit of Seachem garlic guard. The pellets soak up the medicine an the fish love it... I do this every 2 months or so as a prevention not all the time because I dont need them getting immune to the medicine .. Since using this product i have been parasite an disease free.

I use this along with focus to internally treat my fish for ich and it works. The fish are strong, happy and ich free. I used this in my SPS Reef tank with no ill effects.
