Re:bacterial infection spreading


Thank you so much for answering. Last night the female looked pretty bad, but today she’s hitched a little more strongly and seems to be breathing a little easier. The spot near her neck was to the point of tissue erosion just barely beginning but I think that actually looks a little better since treatment started.

I was also using Triple Sulfa along with the Neomycin, as I mentioned. Should I stop that and add the Furanase?

I do happen to have Furanase in the house (Aquarium products brand) and also ordered Furan 2 overnighted to me yesterday- will have on Tuesday- after speaking to another marine biologist yesterday that deals with shs. I’m assuming the Furanase I have is what you’re talking about even though the ingredient breakdown goes something like this – 2-[3-(5-nitro-2-furanyl)-1-[2-5-(nitro-2-fuanyl)ethenyl]-2-propenylidened], ect. and doesn’t just say nifurpirinol.

The Furanase says to put in 2 tablets for 10 gals. the first day and 1 tab. for the next 3 days. I’m assuming if I start with this and not wait for the Furan 2 I would need to increase this doseage also. Do I double ? The packaging says for fresh and saltwater and only gives one set of instructions. I’m assuming I would double their directions. I only have one package of 10 pills on hand. If you feel I should begin with this I will probably need to get more, but I can work that out.

Do you think I should I stop the Triple sulfa and add the Furanase or keep up with all three? I don’t want to overdue it. Thank you again for your time. It means so much to know we’re doing everything we can to help them when they look so helpless!

Oh no –
I just looked on the back of the Furanase and the expiration is listed as 11/04 – I don’t even think we bought it before 11/04. Do you think it’s even worth trying?

I can’t seem to open that link you posted. Even set up a Yahoo account and all to get into it. I type in message number and can’t get beyond that. I would have liked to have read it.
