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 is typically mixed in with the fish food and soaks such as garlic. It can be used in a reef tank.

A
Great question. Protein skimming will not remove Metroplex. However, you do want to remove all chemical filtration and turn of any UV sterilizers or ozonizers.

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.

REVIEW
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.

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.
