Ulcer and Bacterial Treatment

Used for the treatments of bacterial infections, fin rot, open sores, and ulcers

Bacterial infections and ulcerations are primarily a secondary infection resulting from external damage caused by parasites, and physical damage caused by improper netting or rough handling. Most disease problems or issues can be linked back to poor water quality or introduction of sick or stressed fish. Before adding any treatment to your pond or holding system, make sure and verify all water parameters and rectify any issues before treating.
