Seachem Kanaplex Marine and Freshwater Medication Description

Seachem KanaPlex is a blended kanamycin-based medication that safely and effectively treats several fungal and bacterial fish diseases, including dropsy, popeye, fin/tail rot, and septicemica.

  • Safely and effectively treats several fungal and bacterial fish diseases
  • Useful in treating internal infections
  • Marine and freshwater medication

Because it is absorbed by fish, Kanaplex is useful in treating internal infections in those situations where food is refused. It does not adversely affect the filter bed and is easily removed with carbon. To enhance palatability use with Garlic Guard. Food may be refrozen.

Directions: Use 1 level spoonful (180 mg) for every 20 L (5 gallons). Repeat every 2 days as required up to a maximum of 3 doses. Turn off UV, ozone, and chemical filtration. To feed, blend 1 measure with about 1 tablespoon of frozen food paste. Food may be refrozen.

Must-have medicine for your fish

This medicine, combined with nitrofurazone (which works against both gram positive and gram negative bacterias), is one of the better combinations for addressing bacterial diseases, and needs to be on hand for when fish get sick. This is one of the only medicines that is irreplaceable, meaning that I haven't found a better quality product containing the same medicine. I've shifted towards pharmaceutical grade medicines, dips, and salt in treating my fish, and this is a core weapon in my treatments. It binds to and helps fish to absorb nitrofurazone (which is not absorbed through their skin and addresses topical issues only when used alone, while kanaplex can be absorbed through the skin and gills) to address internal issues. It also helps combat fungal diseases, though I've not had to deal with any such issues yet. The time to order this is now, before your fish are sick, not after your fish are showing signs of illness. It's no fun frantically waiting for medicines not available locally to arrive by mail and desperately hoping that your fish hang on long enough. This should be one of the first medicines everyone purchases!

This medicine works well to kill fungi to my guppies

This medicine works well to kill fungi to my guppies. I'm regret to buy this medicine late, otherwise, it will safe more of my guppies life.

Excellent product and service

I was dealing with a particularly stubborn disease (columnaris aka "mouth fungus"), I'd tried 6 separate medications and lost 17 fish. I was literally on the verge of scrapping my 20 gallon and buying a whole new setup. Kanaplex finally cleared up my tank! I now have 4 platies and 7 female guppies living happily in there. In addition, my shipment was lost, and when I contacted Pet Mountain, they IMMEDIATELY sent another container.

Saved our Goldfish!

This product is a life saver, literally. Our fish showed the signs of Dropsy. This medication combined with a known system of helping the fish saved and cured our fish of the things causing the symptoms of dropsy. This is the only medication that is not hard on the organs of your fish with dropsy.

"Cleared up infections"

My cichlid had an infection. Not sure if it was columnaris. Used in conjunction with Furan 2 and the infection has cleared up within 5 days.
