Can I use Fungus Cure and Triple Sulfa at the same time?

Mixing meds isn't a good idea....though I can't say whether there would be any synergistic effects between the formulation of the Fungus Cure and Triple Sulfa. What is it that you're trying to treat??

I have had lingering Columnaris-like infection in my 10g that has killed off about half the tank. Every time I thought it went away, I lose another fish to it regardless of water conditions and frequency of water changes. I have tried the no medicine approach and just put fihs in QT as they got sick but it is not helping the main tank. I have been able to save one fish to date, which is the Tetra in QT right now. It took 5x the reccomended does of Kanacyn to fix the Tetra. I lost another Tetra this weekend, and I bought a sick Betta that might have Ich, but it looks more like a fungal or bacterial infection. Now the Betta is in the tank, and I am sensing some sort of doomsday scenario in which I lose all my fish to the existing infection, and whatever the Betta has. This is a last ditch effort to rid the tank of infection. Triple Sulfa and Fungus Cure should be a good effort to clear up any bacteria or fungus infection.

Update: There is a note on the back of the Fungus Cure that says it can be combined with antibacterials so I went ahead and used both meds. Hope this whole mess clears up by the weekend.
