Fish Flox Forte® (Cipro) from Thomas Labs is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibacterial that is effective against gram-negative and some gram-positive bacterial pathogens of fish, including aeromonads, flexibacteria, and vibrios. This fish antibacterial is useful for control of some common bacterial diseases in fish, including columnaris infections such as fin rot, saddleback disease, and black patch necrosis. It can also help control fresh and saltwater furunculosis. Cipro inhibits unique target enzymes needed for bacterial replication and DNA repair; therefore, it may be effective against bacteria that are unresponsive to other antibacterials.
