Dosing Excel While Treating with Kanaplex

Hi guys,

I'm having a really bad outbreak of Columnaris in my tank after adding fish without quarantine. Extremely deadly and contagious strain of the bacteria too, not the classic "cottonmouth" variety. Kills some fish in 24h.

Anyway, since I started treating with Kanaplex, the deaths have stopped completely. Pretty amazing.

Now my question is, is it ok to keep dosing Excel (well actually generic gluteraldahyde) while treating with Kanaplex. I'm worried that the Kanamycin will be less effective if it reacts with the glut.

I like to supplement my CO2 with the glut., although my system does provide enough. So I could stop dosing the glut. if there IS a negative interaction between it and the Kanamycin.



Thanks.

You might want to ask on the Seachem forums. Might be someone knowledgeable there.

That is typical of many forums. Usually takes less than 24 hrs. They do it to keep from getting bombed by SPAM ads and weirdos.
