OTC 20gram

RM 8.00

Oxytetracycline or OTC belongs to the tetracycline family of antibiotics. It works by interfering with bacteria's ribosomes, preventing them from creating proteins. It is therefore, effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria that infect fish.

OTC is against a variety of aquarium maladies. It can stop fin rot, a bacterial disease that attacks the fins of aquarium fish. Once the bacteria is killed, most fish will heal and regrow their fins in a clean aquarium. Oxytetracycline also treats dropsy or kidney bloat.

1/4 teaspoon per 20 gallons every 24 hours with a 25% water change before each treatment. Treat for 10 days. Remember to remove any activated carbon or Zeolite from the tank, since these materials will absorb the medication.
