Maracyn double strength?

I've been told to use Maracyn II at double the dosage, do I do the same for must regula Maracyn? I"m goiing to try and treat my few remaining fish if I can somehow catch them tomorrow.

Chris

Chris,
I just read about your problems...sorry man. I can relate, this year has been one big problem with my system. Don't loose the faith and stick close to the site. Lots of help and support here.
Ok, as for the Maracyn II I have used it a double strength with no issues in qt. In fact it worked quite well.

Thanks for your supports, I"M not going to give up even though I"m really discouraged at this point.

So I can use reguar maracyn I at double strength as well? It doesn't say to remove carbon but I'm assuming I should?

Ok, treated double strength and removed the carbon.

I lost a clown today in my hospital tank All I have left now is a yellow tang one more clown and a blue devil that I can't catch out of my 110

Assuming I catch and treat all the fish do I need to wait any certain period of time to add them back to my tank...I don't want them getting sick right away again.

Sorry...lol, I was wondering why you asked despite the topic and discussion so far. I'm treating some type of bacterial infection I guess. It's white fuzzy spots on the fish and one of the yellow tangs eyes is a bit hazy.
