Pharmaceutical grade ampicillin for your aquarium fish. Ampicillin is a broad spectrum, bacteriostatic antibiotic that is effective against some of the bacterial ailments that commonly afflict fishes, particularly popeye, fin rot, dropsy, bacterial kidney disease, septicemia(which appears as blood streaks in the fin), and flexibacter infections like columnaris. Effective against some gram-positive and some gram-negative bacteria.

Overuse of antibiotics can be detrimental in fish as in humans; bacteria can become resistant or mutate, rendering antibiotics ineffective. Use antibiotics not as a cure-all but only when absolutely necessary to treat the infection at hand.

It is also a good idea to quarantine your afflicted fish in a smaller tank and treat that tank, while thoroughly cleaning your main tank and using UV sterilization to prevent recurrence of the offending bacteria. Do not use with invertebrates. When possible, mix antibiotics with fresh or frozen fish food for direct ingestion to avoid contamination of tank and other organisms.

Manufacturer's instructions: Add contents of one capsule per each 10 gallons aquarium water. Repeat in 24 hours. Change water between treatments. Treat from 5 to 10 days.

  • 100 capsules, 250 mg tetracycline per capsule
  • Treats up to 1000 gallons
  • Safe for freshwater and saltwater aquariums
  • For treating bacterial infections
  • Not safe for invertebrates
