Use for: Columnaris infections (Fin Rot, Saddleback, and Black Patch Necrosis Syndromes), Freshwater and Saltwater Furunculosis (skin ulcers, systemic disease).
Because Ciprofloxacin inhibits unique target enzymes needed for bacterial replication and DNA repair, it may be effective against bacteria unresponsive to other antibiotics.
All of the ingredients in Aqua Cipro are pharmaceutical grade quality.
