re:Maracyn = death to Blue-greens!


I used maracyn to rid my tanks of cyanobacteria (which is a more proper name 
for these organisms..i mean we are using the proper names for the 
plants..lets use the correct names for the bacteria too!!)  But it came 
back!!!  I found that as soon as my tank conditions reached equilibrium the 
bacteria went away on it is own.  Don't think that you have the problem 
licked by adding the erthromyicin!!!  Make sure that you keep up with the 
water changes and be patient!
