Please help! How to treat Columnaris in a planted tank?

Thibault Drake

Hi! After doing a lot of research on Columnaris and how to treat it, ive stumbled across multiple sites saying that most of the ways to treat it will kill plants. I really cannot lose any of my plants because I saved up for months to buy them, same with the fish. Is there any way to treat Columnaris without killing plants? Also, will the medication be safe for Pleco and assassin snail? Thanks!

For columnaris I have heard a combination of Furan-2 and kanaplex work well if it’s caught early. However I know kanaplex is not safe for snails, along with most stronger meds. You will likely need to remove them. I used kanaplex and furan-2 in my tanks with no plant death but I don’t have enough experience with them to say for sure they won’t have ill effects.

I would suggest setting up a hospital tank, it’s much easier to treat fish this way. Can you tell me more info about the tank by filling this out?
