    This is the yellow powder, and one of the ingredient is Tetracycline (TC).

    I learn that using yellow powder you need to keep it totally away from the light. You have to cover the QT tank to be in total darkness.

    Bro Ashfaq,

    This medicine is called Elbagin. This is the medicine that I often use.

    I use this at 10g per ton dosage

    I use it for the following:
    1. Whenever I buy new fish, I ask dealer to put some elbagin in the plastic bag to calm the koi and to avoid further stressing the koi
    2. I use this along with 0.3%salt whenever I quarantine a new koi for a week. This mild medicine will not harm an established filter.
    3. I use this when transporting show fish to show venue
    4. A week before the show, i use this elbagin along with 0.3% to whiten the shiroji and produce a new slime coat

    Bro @HDCu,
    is elbagin the same as yellow powder?
    I was told it is not????
    does elbagin contain tetracycline?
