BiFuran Plus is an effective treatment of microbial and protozoan diseases that may occur with freshwater or marine fish. It targets infected areas and replaces the natural slime coat to expedite recovery. BiFuran Plus may be used as a dip or bath, or may mixed with food for ingestion.
Bacterial & Protozoan Infections
Treats up to
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 ULTIMATE or a combination of Liquid Buffered ClorAm-X and Stress-X 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.
Nitrofurazone and furazolidone (active ingredients); sodium cloride, synthetic polymers and a chelating agent.
