Seachem Neoplex (Neomycin Sulfate)
10 Grams; Treats 800 Liters (210 gal.)
*Sea Chem NeoPlex is a broad spectrum antibiotic effective against most external infections of both marine and freshwater fish. Used as directed, Neomycin will not discolor the water or damage the filter bed. It is well tolerated by invertebrates, although delicate species may be stressed. For use in freshwater or marine aquaria.
*Neomycin is ineffective against fungi, yeast and viruses.
Neomycin is not absorbed by the intestinal tract and is effective in treatment of diseases thereof. But Neomycin can damage the kidneys as it is nephrotoxic when it enters the bloodstream, however since this drug is not readily absorbed in the intestinal tract it is useful for treatment of pathogens such as Intestinal Aeromonas that can lead to Dropsy or similar diseases.
Neomycin is very effective when used in feeding (by soaking foods with Neomycin for about 15 minutes in water prior to feeding) due to the fact that this antibiotic does not get absorbed.
*For Fish Food Soak: Use One Measure of Neoplex per 15 minute fish food soaking for an average 60 gallon bio load aquarium (I use "just enough" water to mix fish food and Neomycin).
After soak, pour entire contents into aquarium.
*For in Tank Use; Use 1 level measure (included) to every 8 L (2 gallons). Repeat once a week for up to three weeks until symptoms disappear.
Turn off UV while using.
