While duration of treatment depends on type and severity of infection, it is recommended that extended medication baths continue for a minimum of 5 days but no more than 10 days. Discontinue treatment if no improvement is noted within 5 days. To remove harmless yellow color, change 20% of water and use charcoal filter until clear.

Is it safe for human consumption
1 Answer
Yes, fish antibiotics. ... Fish are given many of the same antibiotics as humansamoxicillin, ciprofloxacin, penicillin and more—sometimes even in the same doses. These pills, which are intended to be dissolved in fish tanks and be absorbed through fishes' skin, can also look extremely similar to the human versions. Please don't take these as medication for humans because they are intended to be used in the fish tank for fishes.
