    Blue Planet Aquari-cycline Tablets


    Aquari-Cycline is a broad spectrum Antibiotic in tablet form effective against a wide range of bacterial infections in fresh and saltwater aquariums. Aquari-Cycline tablets are formulated specifically for aquarium use with inert carriers which dissolve rapidly upon contact with water. The active constituent of Aquari-Cycline, "Tetracycline Hydrochloride", is now legal for open sale (S6) for use in ornamental fish.

    Bacterial diseases can be devastating in aquariums and rank along with other water quality problems and protozoa as major causes of loss of aquarium fish. Aquari-Cycline is active against a wide range of Grampositive and Gram-negative bacteria including Aeromomas and Pseudomonas sp. At the recommended dose rate Aquari-Cycline is bacteriostatic against Bacterial Septicaemia, Coldwater Disease, Columnaris Disease (mouth fungus, cottonwool disease), Furunculosis, Fin and Tail Rot.

    Treatment at the recommended dose rate for three days with subsequent partial water changes has not effected nitrification. However prolonged treatment of mature aquariums with antibiotics will affect nitrifying bacteria. The use of a separate treatment tank is recommended where only a few fish are infected.

    Blue Planet Fluke & Tapeworm


    Blue Planet Fluke & Tapeworm Tablets is a treatment for flukes and tapeworms in ornamental fish. BP Fluke & Tapeworm Tablets have been developed specifically for in water medication of fresh and saltwater fish. The tablets have been specifically formulated with inert excipients to prevent pollution of aquariums. The tablets dissolve rapidly, releasing 95% of the active (praziquantel) within 10 minutes. Praziquantel has been known to effectively control flukes and tapeworm in ornamental fish for a number of years. However, the only products available were formulated for treatment of tapeworm in Dogs (Droncit, 50mg Praziquantel) and posed problems with polluting excipients and high cost of treatment when used in aquariums.

    Flukes: (Monogenetic trematodes) are common parasites of freshwater and marine fishes. Many hundred species are known, the most common groups being, Dactylogyrids (parasitising gills) and Gyrodactylids (parasitising gills, skin and fins). Dactylogyrids known as Gill Flukes, commonly infest all species of ornamental fish, particularly Livebearers, Goldfish, Discus and Angelfish. Gyrodactylids also frequently infest all species of ornamental fish. Fish infested with Gill Fluke show signs of respiratory distress, rapid gill movement, hanging at the surface etc. Fish with Fluke infestation of skin and fins exhibit signs similar to external protozoal infestations such as small red spots on skins and fins and scraping on objects in the aquarium to relieve irritations. Emaciation, inactivity and colour changes occur in chronic sufferers. Flukes can sometimes be seen with the naked eye as tiny pale worms 0.1 to 2mm in length, identification of the particular species is not important as treatment is the same for all flukes.

    Tapeworms: (cestodes) are most common in newly imported fish or wild-caught fish. When present, they are found in the intestines, attached to the intestinal wall by means of a scolex, a head-like structure with suckers. Signs of infestation include enlarged abdomen, and ill thrift.
