Best medication to have on hand
Good Value, Effective
Discolors water
I always have Furan 2 on hand. It is more effective than a similar product I purchased. It can get a little expensive to treat the entire 75 gallon aquarium, but I have done so when fish are too big to move (and when natural treatments don't work). It works - but it does discolor the water (sort of a yellow color). When my son had a sick fish, I gave him my supply and a 10 gallon aquarium (to use as his hospital tank)- and placed another order for myself. His peacock cichlid healed right up and has been fine ever since.

Great for zoapox
Good Value, Effective, Safe, Easy to Use
I use this for rescuing zoas that have started melting, or have zoapox. Do 20 min dips 3 days in a row using half a packet to 1 cup of tank water.

Do research before you buy
Does heal most bacterial infections
Dangerous side effects - may cause liver damage
I wrote a glowing for this medication that needs an update. I had a disastrous bacterial infection sweep through my 75 gallon freshwater aquarium in September (change in local water chemistry that I was not aware of until too late). I used Furan 2 and saw no improvement - only more and more fish getting sick - with secondary fungal infection spreading rapidly (Furan 2 does not treat fungal infections). I researched all night long on Furan 2 and bacterial/fungal up all I could find on this medication - and found it can have some devastating effects (liver and kidney damage - and more) on healthy fish that are in the same aquarium (might explain any mystery deaths you have later after using this medication). I switched to a different medication (not available here) and fish started improving almost immediately. I kept my fish loss to a minimum by discontinuing Furan 2. Yes, Furan 2 did heal my fish in the past - healed fin rot and other bacterial infections, but now I use a medication (when natural treatments don't work)that is not as harmful to the rest of my fish - a medication with far fewer side effects. Hopefully, PetSolutions will stock that medication sometime in the future. I haven't had a 100% success rate with it either.... I don't think any medication is 100% successful - just as with people - some fish just don't respond to the medication.
