Using antibiotoics on your cyanobacteria

I have seen posted here that people have been using antibiotics to treat
their cyanobacteria.  The problem is that if you don't eradicate it, it
comes back resistant.

This is bad. Not only does it ruin your fishtank, but it could pose health
threats to you and your family.  The cyanobacteria can and will eventually
pass on any resistance to any antibiotics that it has to other more nasty
bacteria. So, when your kid gets that ear infection that is resistant to
erythromycin, kanamycin, and whatever else you use in your tank, you know

Continued misuse of antibiotics is a big problem that needs to be
curtailed immediately.
