Would these plants tolerate Furan-2?

I've got a nasty case of columnaris in my 25g planted tank. Would these plants tolerate Furan-2? I'm also giving my fish kanamycin medicated flakes, I make sure none of the flakes are left after feeding. I know Kanamycin is EVEN WORSE then Furan-2 for plants according to the sources I've read.

On Furan-2 I've read that some plants can tolerate it, I'm not sure about my plants though. . .

My Plants:
Dwarf Lilly
Anacharis
Telanthera Cardinalis
Water Wisteria
Aponogeton boivinianus

Thanks!

If you're that worried about the plants just pull them out while you treat the tank.

Just a noob

Because of my living situation I currently have no where to set up another tank to place the plants into. Could I set up a 5 gallon bucket or something to place the plants into for a few days? I'd still have to give them light in that situation, and I'm not sure how I'd do that either.

That will work just fine, the plants you have are not very demanding and will do just fine out of the tank for a few days. Go buy a cheap clear storage container from Walmart and set it where it can get natural light from outside.
