API Furan 2

Will have to be using this on my tank due to columnaris, will this kill my shrimp and my nerite snails? If so, is there an alternative?

my SunSun cannister filter has UV light in it, will this also help in the containment of columnaris?

In my experience Furan kills plants. I only use it in a QT tank.
I would start with kanaplex (kanamycin) first, it is safe for snails and shrimp. I've used it in a tank with ramshorn snails, amano and glass shrimp with no losses.
