Is the 200 ppm a typo? Noga gives 2 ppm as the dose to use. I would not dose higher than 5 ppm.Dear Jay,
I finally just got the enrofloxacin. The fish is already in a quarantine tank that has already been turned over, so there are already bacteria. Do I want to restart the quarantine tank with 100% new water, no 'starter' bacteria, and no filter pad? Or is it OK to simply bring the concentration up to the initial 200 ppm by way of a partial water change and leave the filter pad (fibrous, but no carbon) in there? In other words, are existing nitrifying bacteria going to 'saturate' the antibiotic?
I don’t think Enro will kill off the beneficial bacteria, but I’m not positive. You should always monitor ammonia levels when dosing antibiotics n aquariums.
