Re: [Killietalk] Mouth Fungus?
Hi Kris, Aureomycin is in the tetracycline family. Technically I guess it is chlortetracycline. If your local fish store sells any fish medications, they should have tetracycline. Barring that, here is a link to an on-line place that sells aureomycin in soluble powder form: http://makeashorterlink.com/?O1BE56476
Now, after I've said all that...have you tried a healthy dose of salt to the water? I generally start with that before I even start thinking about drugs. I am under the impression that freshwater pathogens have a hard time living in saltwater and vise versa. Even if this is not 100% accurate, salt has worked for me in the past on a bunch of different things. HTH, Ron

>A couple of my fish seem to have mouth fungus. Telltale white cotton like patches on their mouths. I looked to the AKA guide, and it recommends treatment with chloromycetin or aureomycin. Well, that's good to know, but I don't really have access to either. I'm wondering if I could just use penicillin or another commonly available med??
