Tom the danger is not resistant cyano. The danger lies
in the unknown species in the tank gaining immunity.
This can happen either by gaining it from a resistant
cyano via plasmids etc, or it can happen because the
dose that kills cyano doesn't kill some other bug that
is pathogenic to US :-) I realize you generally agree
with avoiding antibiotics, so way to go! I just want
to make sure that people understand that any time you
use a antibiotic you increase the risks of new
problems for the fish AND the keepers.
