Loaches & Erythromycin

I wondered if anyone has ever used Erythromycin (Maracyn) on their Loaches. I've been told by an aquarium curator that I need to use it to kill a plague of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) that is taking over my aquarium. Should this be used in 1/2 strength on the Loaches and Corycats or can they stand it at all.

Sharing your experience with this med is appreciated!!!
