Fish Zole Forte (Metronidazole) exerts a bactericidal action on gram positive and some gram negative bacteria. It is effective against a number of pathogentic bacteria associated with ornamental fish diseases, including areomonas and pseudomonas genera and mysobacterial group (gill diseases, chondrococcus). It is useful in the control of “Hole-in-the-Head” and “Angel Problems” in Cichlid and Discus.
