A while back you suggested Maracyn and Maracyn 2 as an antibiotic treatment. You said to use them as directed for 5 days, and that the water may become cloudy, but that the bacterial bed would not be harmed. I just want to confirm that you have found this treatment to be safe for loaches - clowns and yoyos. How about cory / oto cats? I seem to remember further back that it was recommended to use the medication half strength for loaches. I think I might need to get started with this treatment, but want to make doubly sure that it is indeed safe for the loaches and cats, as directed full strenth for 5 days. No water change for 5 days? Or a water change between each treatment? I'm assuming no carbon and then to add carbon after a water change on day 6. Please confirm ASAP. Thanks. Jill
