    Does anyone use docxcycline in your tanks ? If so what for ? There is a bottle for sale that I wonder if I need to get to have on hand ?

    Most problems could be remedied with water changes. You certainly wouldn't want to use meds if you can avoid it. Having it on hand would make it too easy to jump in to using it unnecessarily. Just my :;2cents

    Not something I have ever seen or used, tho im aware of it and have read up on it. Just not a big one that people use a lot as far as I know. Read up on it, our advice is either the same thing you would read or most often usually limited to personal experience.

    I have never used it. Really the meds I keep on hand are prazipro, methane blue, and furan 2. Almost all of my petstore fish that I have bought have internal parasites so I use prazi pro often enough in quarantine tank with new fish. I only have the other two because my betta had issues a while ago with fungas, and healing scales. For the most part keeping on top of my water parameters seems to keep my fish pretty healthy.

    If you want to try it, it may work even better then the oldschool oxytetracycline. You could also use Minocycline. All of these are pretty reliable broad spectrum antibiotics, tho they all work best in Softer water lower PH than most of us have in the states, so you would always try to put them in food.
