Binox



binox.jpgBeen having alot of issues with my goldfish tank with my goldfishes passing away lately. Not quite sure. They are healthy one day and the gone the next day. Most seem to have a bladder issue with them floating sideways. sucks. So my LFS recommended that I use Binox. It says it's good for:

"A broad range treatment for all tropical fish and goldfish that clears severe fungus and bacteria related problems including cotton fungus, grey slime, scratching, open sores, bloody spots and streaks, fin/tail/mouth rot, swim bladder disease, dropsy and cloudy eyes. A great alternative to expensive sulfa drugs."

he said 1 teaspoon per 10 gallon but good thing I read the instructions and it's 1 teaspoon per 25 gallons! i'll see how it goes.

Binox is a useful product, however Jungle needs to better state their ingredients which in this case Nitrofurazone.
Nitrofurazone is not really any cheaper than sulfa drugs (unlike the statement in the article) and is not effective for Dropsy (it sit not effective for internal infections)
Nitrofurazone is effective for Aeromonas and sometime columnaris.
