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.

Q
How much of this is recommended for a full treatment?
Also, how much seachem focus would be needed to bind the full treatment to food? Is the 5g bottle for each enough?

A
The manufacturer recommends 125 mg per 10 gallons of tank water. Since the product is administered via food, I would suggest dosing 125 mg for every 2 tablespoons of food; dose every 2 days for 3 weeks as recommended by the manufacturer.

PROS
Helped wit tang fin infection quickly
CONS
In powder form would prefer liquid.
REVIEW
I used this on my Yellow that had an infection on a lower fin. I am not sure if this medication cured the infection or it was the constant feeding of frozen, seaweed or pellets. But I believe the week of medication had something to do with curing the infection.
