I'm starting a new course of Maracyn/Maracyn 2 for fin and tail rot for my young albino oscar- I thought it was getting better, but now seems to be getting worse ....does anyone know if antibiotic food would be a supplemental treatment for this condition? Also, the maracyn directions say to maintain normal filtration- can I keep my carbon going? So many questions- just want to do the right thing for the little guy!
Thanks,
Lisa

I don't see a problem with the antibiotic food. Might be worth a try since he is still eating. You definitely need to remove the carbon if you haven't already. Carbon will absorb all the meds out of your tank.

Thanks guys,
I'll remove the carbon right away and try the antibiotic food....yes-he still eats very well! My latest problem is how cloudy the quarantine tank is-but I don't want to do a water change mid-treatment do I? I appreciate your input!!

The cloudiness is normal when using this medication. Just ride it out until you have treated according to the directions.
