Drugs that can be used on catfish

Post by kiwidu21 »

Hello,

having already had several diseases in my tanks, some of which required shock treatment (use of salt), I would have liked to know if anyone had a link or a book with the products that can be used on catfish and the dosage.

As catfish (and loaches) have a specific skin, I know that certain products are to be dosed by half but it's not easy to find your way around with all that you find on the market.

I would like if possible to have the dosage limits for methylene blue, malachite green, salt (8g/L in my memories) and any other treatment that can be used on them.

If you also have product names (or photos because the use of a translator tends to change the name) I'm interested.

I found several threads on different diseases but none that gathers all the data (disease, symptoms, treatment).

I have a Hoplosternum littorale that I am treating for white fuzz fungus. I have used meth blue at full strength doses and as a dip. I also have used Seachem paraguard, polyguard and kanaplex. I have also used Fritz Maracyn Oxy. I have not reduced recommended dose quantity with any of these and have noted no ill side effects.
