API furan 2? Good or not

Hello, I was wondering if API furan 2 is a good product and if it can support scaleless fish like Cory cats? Pros and cons

It works for its intended purpose - Follow directions closely . Instructions are on the box also on their website . I would look their first - Get the info from the manufacturer

Iím not aware of anything with scaleless fish? Was there something online? Iíve got one note itís not skin absorbed but would think kidney or some organ failure may be more an issue if a reaction to it (but the bacterial infection worse anyways).

Ime it does a number on plants and weíve (expensively!) used it to treat BGA algae in a school display cichlid tank.

No there was nothing online about it that was the reason why I asked about scaleless fish but I ended up getting API euthromycyn, I think that’s how you spell it so it is all figured out thx for responding tho appreciate it

That's interesting it attacked plants. Any particular species, such as vallisneria, or was it more generalized?

Maybe itís something to do with my water as well? Anything noted over there with furan and plants (itís really rare to use it here).

Mainly stem plants, aponogeton, bolbitis fern got taken out. Last time I dosed it more and lost most plants. It really did a number on the bolbitis which in general Iíve noticed doesnít like much micro ferts dosing and is a bit temperamental.

The Java fern and Anubias was pretty fine.

Nothing else really different in tank and I think this is the third time now Iíve noticed a die off with furan dosing. Seems weird though - other antibiotics donít seem such a problem.

Found a little bit here on an old discus forum. Only vals were mentioned, but perhaps other delicate plants are vulnerable, too.

Many thanks!, I think the first time it did wipe out all the val which was getting to be a nuisance the way it was spreading. Surprisingly I have no trouble with crypts.
