Can work very well for columnaris, fin melt, and a variety of other bacterial diseases. The scoop makes this one of the easiest powder medications to dose.

Good for treating gram + bacterial infection. Fish recovered within a week of treatment. Very strong medication. Treats columnaris.

It works great mixed in food. If the infection is severe, feed it to them in food for 10 days. Depending on how severe and what the disease is, you might need to combine it with Neoplex, sulfaplex, or metroplex if there's parasites involved. Mix the combo with food, focus (binds meds to food), and water. Hand feed them if needed. Don't ever put any anibiotics in your main tank or it will most likely make things much worse. Give them kordons fish protector during treatment and for any stressful event. It will boost their immune system also.

Thus product was easy to use and worked well to cure my beta of fin rot. I gave 2 doses to be sure but likely 1 would have been fine. I'm very pleased my fish is now healthy.

My guppy tank got sick and I started seeing fin rot and white saddle spot on my fish. I suspect Columnaris. I treated my tank with kanaplex simultaneously with api furan 2 and it took care of the problem! There were even baby guppies in the tank and they lived through it and are doing well. My tank was discolored after but cleared up with water changes and added good bacteria. I would recommend this!

My Betta was sick. Barely coming to the top, bumping into the glass and freaking out when it touched anything in the aquarium. He hid out and was eating very little or not at all. It seemed to have fin rot as well. I first did the salt water treatment × 7 days as per directions I found online. He seemed a little better at times but still sick. I researched and found a video someone had posted on using the Seachem KanaPlex (my fish was acting just as she described in her video) I have used as per label directions and have started his 3rd day. With each dose he has gotten better, now swimming to the top, eating again and playing in the bubbler! I would highly recommend and would keep on hand!

Worked!! My flower horn has began to heal up, he had a sore on the lip that I suspected would eventually eat away his mouth and he would die but is now about healed up I used the full amount over 6 days then did water and filter change.

Kanaplex saved my betta fish from a sudden illness that clean water and salt would not fix. The first dose perked him up and he was able to eat for me which made medicating him so much easier. I recommend this for any fish keeper's medicine kit when clean water (healthy water parameters have been established), proper temperature, and aquarium salt have failed to improve the quality of life.

My betta had some sort of infection that caused dropsy and I put her in a 5 gal hospital tank with a pinch of epsom salt and dosed her with this according to instructions. She made a full recovery and I am completely shocked as most fish do not survive once illness has progressed to dropsy. Obviously this will only work if you treat asap and if the infection is fungal/bacterial.

Very good at treating Fin rot, gold standard.Sad news for any fish afflicted with dropsy however, from my 5 years of treating many hundreds of fish with Dropsy using Kanaplex, I would say the success /survival rate is 10%.

My betta fish showed significant improvement after using this medication within 24 hours. With an 80% water change and raising his heater temperature, he is almost cured. Thanks so much!

After my boyfriend decided to set up a 30 gallon fish tank with four blue spotted sunfish in it. He decided to throw a few minnows in it. One of them within a few days had a really nasty case of finrot which killed it in over 24 hours after that the fish in the tank started slowly but surely breaking down with what I thought was ich. So I kept treating with every ich medicine on the market. The minnows all started to do better but my original Sunfish were cowering into the back of the tank. One became so ill over a 48 hour period..It basically ate through his his fins snf took over his body in no time..I treated aquarium with salt pimafix melafix as well as finrot meds by API to no avail when I finally realize none of this was working it was too late. the rest of my fish were starting to go downhill one had clamped fins with fungus at the base of his fins. Really terrible feeling watching fish you become emotionally invested in waste away like this. I started losing hope when my Amazon shipment arrived and I quickly dosed the tank accordingly. By the next morning clamped fins were gone by the following day the fish were at the front of the tank being more friendly and eating better today is the third day in the fungus is dissipating and their fins are growing back😲💗 I pray that it keeps working but in the meantime I am so thankful for this product and so are my fish. Word of advice always make sure your fish are healthy before adding them to your community tank. And if you run into any severe funguses or any severe disease grab yourself some of this. Not saying pimafix and melafix don't work..just didnt work for me. Kanaplex is a winner in my book

I have a few goldfish and one developed dropsy. He was getting very sluggish and not moving much. It was over a span of a few weeks so I didn't even notice that he was so bloated! I felt really awful about it. To be honest it was an emergency situation so I called every local fish shop and had to drive 40 miles to get this product because Amazon wasn't going to send it on time (I needed it day-of). After about a week, I noticed he was getting better and looking less bloated. I read online that dropsy is almost always incurable but after a whole dosing period plus a break plus another couple of doses, my goldfish recovered. It was a miracle.I don't want to make it seem like this is the miracle cure for all dropsy but I was lucky and it cured my fish. Unfortunately a couple months later, he's having swim bladder issues and now developing dropsy again so we'll see how he does this time. I have a feeling that it's more severe this time so please pray for my fish :(

This has quite literally saved the life of two of my fish. Fish meds are really hard for me to find locally so when I came across a problem that absolutely required an antibiotic like this I had to wait on it. I couldn't be happier with the results. It brought both of my fish (two different times and unique problems) back from the brink of death to good health!This is not the solution to ALL fish illness. You have to know what you are dealing with and if it applies to your situation. If it does though, it is a life saver and does exactly what it is suppose to.I do however disagree with its claims to cure dropsy. C'mon Seachem really?

Kanaplex is the first product I use when I am dealing with diseases in my quarantine tank. It effectively treats a wide range of bacterial issues and does NOT harm the biological filter. This is a great medication and you can treat an entire aquarium in the water column since it is absorbed through the skin and gills.Columnaris: Kanaplex (combined with Furan 2) is the only product that has successfully treated columnaris in my main tank. However, the combination of the two mecications does damage the biological filter so watch closely for ammonia and nitrate spikes. My tank had a mini-cycle and bounced back quickly.
