Seems to me that's what they did with this one.
I haven't used aquarium antibiotics for years. We can't buy them where I am
without a veterinary prescription, and it's had no effect on my fish at all. I
have no doubt we're of the same school as far as killie-keeping techniques go.
BUT, sweeping these issues under the rug wouldn't be promoting the hobby. You
can't learn too much. I'm not interested in nothos, but I'm glad to read the
threads on them. I don't use antibiotics on my fish, but I'm pleased to learn
from those who do.
When i was a kid, I dumped all sorts of antibiotics in my tanks, because they
were cheap, available and apparently useful. Overuse of these drugs is an issue
in the hobby.
