  • If you're new to the whole concept of fish antibiotics, there are a few basics you need to know.  These are not antibiotics made out of fish.  Neither are they micro-pills you must cram down your guppy's throat.  In general they are pills or capsules of the same size and strength humans use.

Although you cannot buy human or even dog antibiotics in the U.S. without a legal prescription, a federal loophole allows these same antibiotics to be sold over-the-counter for aquarium use.  (Most physicians and pharmacists are unaware of this exemption.)  Many of these so-called fish antibiotics are the same quality and dosage as human antibiotics (USP grade, AB-rated generics).  Those who purchase these products are implicitly agreeing to use these antibiotics for aquarium purposes only.
