Yellow medication?

Hi:

We live in China, so most fish care products here we don't even know what they are called in English, however, all the websites use either English or Latin names for medication they advise the fish fans to use on their fish.

I was wondering if any of you might know what an intensely yellow powder meidcation is called.

It gives water a yellow tint when added to the tank water for treatment purposes, cures fin rot, scales issues, bites, cuts (worked for us on those), different bacterial ailments and dropsy (haven't tried it for that one, but the LFS said it does).

Does anybody have any idea what it is?

The last medication I used that turned the water yellow was Furan II.

You may want to google that and see if it is what you are looking for.

Hope that helps,

It sounds to me like Nitrafurazone... might want to check that one out, too.

Here is the thread where the picture of the medicine can be found.:) I think I've seen that package before. Furan would be my guess.

All future responses regarding the medicine should be maintained here. I might have to edit the other thread to prevent any confusion between traffic.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Looks like it

Yes, looks like that's the one, same color, same effects.

Thanks a lot
Now I know what I'm using.

Any known side effects?

If it is Furan II, I have seen no side effects. I always follow the exact directions for dosage amount, carbon removal, and water changes and have had good results using it.

Hope that helps,
