Indiscriminate use of antibiotics was Re: Cork for Mops
>>Well, the indiscriminate use of antibiotics is probably the most serious issue we face as fish keepers. <<
I didn't pay much attention to the original threas, which was regarding BG Algae as I recall. So my appologies if I'm rehashing ground already covered. But...
1. Is the issue related to the negative effect on our fish when nasty fish bacterial deseases develop immunity and wipe out our tanks. or....
2. Is the issue that indescriminate use of the antibiotics in the tanks could inadvertantly allow nasty human bacteria that are just hanging around to become more resistant and thus potentially put us fishkeepers, freinds and family and the whole human race at risk.
I know there's real concern in hospitals about that. But there's a difference from an infected human host (someone who's sick with a bacterial infection) incubating antibiotic resistent strains, and antibiotics in solutions (tank water) with fish as potential hosts. Or is there no real difference. Or do we simply don't know.
