Do you see any external, secondary bacterial issues on the fish that would make you believe that the nitrofurazone is necessary?
This infection is in one eye, correct?
Edit: With single eye infections in aquarium, they are primarily gram +. I would recommend that, instead of another gram negative antibiotic, which both the kanamycin and nitrofurazone are, that you use a gram + antibiotic. Either erythromycin ( if fish not eating) or neomycin directly in food with binder like Seachem Focus or food grade gelatin product like Knox gelatin (if eating). Also, do a low dose of epsom salt directly in aquarium for length of treatment with antibiotics. 1/2 tsp per 5 gallons of water. This dosage amount is all that is needed to get positive effects.
