Using Baytril Injection

Baytril is the antibiotic enrofloxacin widely in the veterinary field and is also very effective for fish. Latest research suggest a single dose may be sufficient. 

The widely reported and generally accepted dosage of “n-cc per inch of fish” is based on a wrong assumption, and will ultimately under-dose big fish and over-dose small fish. In addition fish in show condition are significant more voluminous than normal specimens and will require more injection.

Use the injectable preparation. NEVER inject the Baytril 10% Oral preparation, it not sterile.
