I've never seen erythromyacin do anything except cloud water. And
while I'm sure it kills BGA I cannot think anythin but that it's messy
nasty stuff. I'm staring at a tank now I treated last tuesday w h202. By
thursday the BGA was all dead and the tank is still clear and
Crypt. blasii is growing unimpeded. In my water at my temperatures
this is the least robust of all crypts here.

(ironically in my wifes tank which is much warmer blassii grows
like a weed, but she hates crytpts. Oh the irony)
