Instructions As a bath: As a bath treatment for external nitrofuran-susceptible, microbial diseases of marine and freshwater aquarium and pond fishes, use 1 capful (~9.7g) per 10 gallons of water. A partial or complete water change should be made just prior to beginning treatment and every 24 hours thereafter, followed by re-treatment. Any water used should first be conditioned with a water conditioner to remove ammonia, chlorine and chloramines. Repeat the treatment every 24 hours for 5 to 7 days or until complete cessation of mortalities occurs. If improvement is not noted within three (3) days, discontinue treatment and consider other therapy.
Short-term dip for marine fishes: Mix the proper amount of BiFuran+ into a container of conditioned freshwater and place the diseased fishes into the container with gentle aeration. Allow the fishes to remain in this dip treatment until they can no longer remain upright or show other signs of osmotic stress (typically no longer than 1 minute). After treatment return the treated fishes to normal seawater for recovery. Repeat daily as needed.
Oral treatment for fish: For systemic (internal) infections, Bifuran+ can be fed mixed with fish food.
Cautions: Avoid skin and eye contact. Avoid breathing powder or dust. Use in an area with minimal air movement to prevent blowing of powder or dust. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. In case of eye contact immediately flush with water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.
