Fish Aid Ciprofloxacin is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotic that is effective against gram-negative and some gram-pos-itive bacterial pathogens of fish, including aeromonads, flexibacteria, and vibrios. This fish antibiotic 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. Ciprofloxacin inhibits unique target enzymes needed for bacterial replication and DNA repair; therefore, it may be effective against bacteria that are unresponsive to other antibiotics.
