API Triple Sulfa™ Powder contains three sulfa medications to effectively treat bacterial infections such as hemorrhagic septicemia (blood streaks in fins and body and localized swelling), bacterial gill disease, fin & tail rot, cotton mouth disease, body slime and eye cloud for both fresh and saltwater fish. This medication will not harm the biological filter and will not color aquarium water.
This medication can be combined with other mild broad spectrum parasite/fungal treatments to boost effectiveness. It can also be combined with neomycin or nitrofurazone for stubborn infections.
