  1. What’s the difference in the two? And will both help with blue green algae
  2. I am wondering which is better? Maracyn treats gram positive, but Maracyn 2 is good for both positive and negative. Wouldn't it be better to treat for both types of bacteria? I am going to set up a quarantine tank so there is not active infection but as a precaution wouldn't Maracyn 2 treat what Maracyn does anyway plus the gram negative as well?
  3. Kanaplex or marycin 2 they seem to treat the same things but which do you guys think is more reliable?
  4. I have some neon tetras with some bacterial looking infections and the trio, and salt has not done anything. I want to try maracyn 2. But I have plants and shrimp, will they be okay? Thanks
  5. One of my tetras abdomen is swollen. Dropsy I suspect. I pulled her out and set her up in a hospital tank, using 1 gallon of water from the show tank. I looked at my fish medicine inventory. The one product that is recommended to treat dropsy Maracyn 2 I don't have! So I treated with one teaspoon of aquarium salt/gallon. My first instinct is to go to Aquarium Co-op to order it. Hmmmmm. The Co-op does not carry it to order. Why? I have the other trio.... Can't decide what to do. Is treating with salt the only thing I can do??? When should I change her water???? Looking forward to your response.
  6. Does anyone have experience using maracyn 2? If so, did it work? I’ve heard it kills off beneficial bacteria, but that shouldn’t be an issue if used in a large quarantine tank. Im considering it to see if it works on bettas with dropsy.
