Seachem Kanaplex  – 5 g


KanaPlex™ is a blended kanamycin based medication that safely and effectively treats several fungal, and bacterial fish diseases (dropsy, popeye, fin/tail rot, septicemia). Because it is absorbed by fish it is useful in treating internal infections in those situations where food is refused. It does not adversely affect the filter bed and is easily removed with carbon. When used in a medicated food mix, it is excellent for treating bacterial infections in tanks that contain invertebrates. For use in freshwater or marine aquaria.

Types of Infections Treated ( Fungal / Bacteria )


Dosing in Water

Remove all invertebrates – these are extremely sensitive to medication. Turn off UV filters, ozone filters, and remove chemical filtration like MatrixCarbon™ and Purigen™. Use 1 measure (included) per every 20 L (5 gallons). Repeat this dose every 48 hours to a maximum of 3 doses. In cases of severe infections, it is possible to carry out two rounds of treatment back-to-back. However, this should only be done if fish show no signs of stress at the end of the first round.

Dosing in Food

Feed the medicated food mix (recipe below) every day until the infection clears or up to 1 week. This medicated food can be refrigerated or frozen between feedings.

  • 1 scoop KanaPlex
  • 1 scoop Focus™
  • 1 tbsp food (preferably pellets or frozen food)
  • A few drops of water if using a dry food

To enhance palatability use with  GarlicGuard™ or Entice™.

After Treating

When the treatment period is over, KanaPlex™ can easily be removed using activated filter carbon . It does not linger in the substrate or filter media of the tank.

Active ingredients: kanamycin sulfate (32%) Inactive ingredients: excipients (68% )
