NT Acriflavin

Treatment for bacterial ailments

All ponds will contain billions of minute bacteria. These include helpful species that breakdown the toxic fish waste in the biological filter system, and convert it into nitrate, which is then taken up by the plants.
However, there are also other bacteria that live in the pond that are opportunistic invaders of stressed and wounded fish, including the species Pseudomonas and Aeromonas which will infect any cut or abrasion on the surface of the fish, and can also invade the host across the gut wall during gastro-intestinal problems.

Acriflavin, when added to the pond, will reduce the numbers of these opportunistic bacteria in the pond, thus lowering not only the chance of infection, but also the intensity of disease in already infected ponds.

Acriflavin is ideal to use in hospital or quarantine tanks, but it is unwise to constantly add the treatment to the pond when the fish are healthy. This is because a background level of bacteria is essential for healthy fish to maintain their immune system.

Before treating with Acriflavin:
Remove adsorbent filter material - carbon, zeolite etc.
Switch off UV
Increase Aeration
Allow plenty of time to observe fish
Do not mix medications
Leave 10 days between treatments if no improvement is seen

250mls treats 2000 gals (9092 ltrs)
500mls treats 4000 gals (18184 ltrs)
1 litre treats 8000 gals (36200 ltrs )
2.5 litres treats 20000 gals (90920 lts)

A single dose should be sufficient. If not, wait 10 days before adding a second dose.

The 2.5L size is named Acriflavin 7.
