Spoke at length today with a Pathologist regarding the potential treatment
of my tetra mouth fungus problem. The first question I was asked was if the
bacteria I was trying to treat was  gram negative or gram positive. The
advice I got was that if you identify a gram negative bacteria you are
wasting your time with amoxicillin ( AKA maracyn ). Recommended for gram
negative bacteria was a sulpha based antibiotic. I was told the most
effective way to treat gram negative bacteria was with Ciprofloxin. Being
almost sure that I have an issue with Columnaris ( Gram Negative ) I am
going to treat some of the remaining fish with some Cipro as a test. ( Don't
throw out those unused presciptions )
I'll let you know how it goes.
