• AAP Nitrofurazone "Yellow Powder" is superior to other Nitrofurazone products such as Furan 2.
An excellent choice for Aeromonas, Vibrio, and Furunculosis (common in Koi and goldfish) as well as an excellent treatment for Columnaris when combined with Kanaplex.
For one it often needs only ONE TREATMENT unlike Furan-2 so although the price is initially higher, your costs for complete treatment are lower since multiple treatments usually are not needed (at most a 2nd treatment is called for)

As well, AAP Nitrofurazone "Yellow Powder" can be combined with Kanamyacin for a stronger treatment and unlike Furan 2, the purity of this product often allows for a single treatment and a much more effective treatment than the Furan 2/Kanaplex combination.
• AAP Nitrofurazone "Yellow Powder" is also an effective external treatment Freshwater fish for:
* Peeling or white body slime
* Open Ulcers
* Ammonia Exposures
* Some causes of fin rot (especially when caused by high ammonia)
Treat again in 3 days if needed (after 20%+ water change)
If combined with AAP/SeaChem Kanaplex, still treat only once while treating with Kanaplex every other day and re-treat with AAP Yellow Powder after 3 days if needed.
For small aquariums, if you already have a scoop from a SeaChem Kanaplex or similar SeaChem product, this can be used 1-2 level measures to every 5 gallons (20 liters)
Nitrofurazone may be harmful to some plants (not all). AAP advises the use in a hospital tank for fish kept in aquarium with sensitive invertebrate or plants.
