Treating fish in NFG (Nitrofurazone, methylene blue, and sulfa antibiotics).

I am going to tank transfers every 2.5 days (discarding all the water). I don’t want to negativity impact the environment by creating antibiotic resistant strains, so how do I properly dispose of this?

Unless you're on a septic system just flush it down the drain.

Waste treatment plants are designed to handle it.
