Hey reefers,

battled a bacterial infection and uronema that wiped my tank last year and certainly don’t want to lose another battle.
Dealing with medications such as antibiotics for fish in Australia is extremely difficult with strict bands on certain products such as kanaplex etc which leaves me with not many options when it comes to medications, mainly blue planet and other herbal remedies. Below are images of my naso tang with others from the internet that are how the infection started. At first a grey film started spreading on the side of the body and then the flesh started to show over the days. This fish is extremely thick and is probably why it is not dead yet.
Currently in Qt treating with a herbal treatment, and have methylene blue on hand, also is a fresh water bath worth it? Anyone treated this before in Australia? Really don’t want to lose this beautiful fish, Cheers

if you can get Acriflavine-MS, its an effective preventative and treatment for the control of oodinium (velvet disease) as well as for various external protozoan and bacterial infections.
