NeoPlex™ is a broad spectrum antibiotic effective against most external infections of both marine and freshwater fish. Used as directed, NeoPlex™ will not discolor the water or damage the filter bed. It is well tolerated by invertebrates, although delicate species may be stressed.
Types of Infections Treated
Dosing in Water
Remove all invertebrates – these are extremely sensitive to medication. Turn off UV filters, ozone filters, and remove chemical filtration like MatrixCarbon™ and Purigen™. Use 1 measure (included) per every 8 L (2 US gallons). Repeat this dose every 7 days to a maximum of 3 weeks. This will treat external bacterial infections.
Dosing in Food
Feed the medicated food mix every day until the infection clears or up to 1 week. This will treat internal bacterial infections. This medicated food can be refrigerated or frozen between feedings.
To enhance palatability use with GarlicGuard™ or Entice™.
When the treatment period is over, NeoPlex™ can easily be removed using activated filter carbon like MatrixCarbon™. It does not linger in the substrate or filter media of the tank. Remove with carbon before turning on UV.
