MedFinn is a medicated feed based on Romet-TC. Romet-TC is a proven effective broad spectrum antibiotic used in the commercial fish farming trade, and is one of only three antibiotics approved for use in fish by the FDA. AquaFinn has used their knowledge of commercial fish farming to design a version of Romet-TC for the Koi and goldfish enthusiast that adjusts dose and duration to safely maximize effectiveness. MedFinn combines the safety and effectiveness of Romet-TC, with dosing formulas to help you calculate the proper amount of feed needed based on the weight of fish in your tank or pond, producing a very effective tool to help eliminate internal bacterial infections.
MedFinn will treat most gram-negative bacterial infections
- Ulcerative hemmhoragic septicemia: Large ulcers on the body of the fish
- Hemmhoragic septicemia with abdominal distension and exophiala: General bleeding under the scales with a bloated abdomen often accompanied by pop eye. May be called pine coning.
- Mouth and Fin Rot: Degeneration of the tissue in the mouth and on the fins. Affected areas are being eaten away.
- Columnaris on skin and gills: May look like white tufts or patches and will lead to ulcerations and massive tissue loss. Can cause rapid mortality when in the gills.
- Bacterial Gill Disease: Like columnaris and can cause rapid mortality.

What does MedFinn treat?
MedFinn was developed to treat gram negative bacterial infections found on the inside of your fish. MinnFinn was brought to you to treat any of the external infections you encounter. Now AquaFinn is closing the loop with MedFinn to treat those stubborn internal bacterial infections that can cause dropsy and ulcers.
How many treatments of MedFinn are needed?
The MedFinn treatment protocol is based on that that was developed for treating fish in the aquaculture industry as specified by the FDA. At the labeled dose for the antibiotic Romet, a ten day treatment at the calculated quantity of feed per day should eliminate most bacterial infections.
What is the active ingredient?
The active ingredient in MedFinn is Romet which is a potentiated sulfonamide antibiotic. Of the three antibiotics legal for use in fish, this one has some of the best responsiveness for treating these bacterial infections.
How long is a MedFinn treatment?
MedFinn needs to be fed out over 10 days at a specific rate. We have developed a calculator sheet that the store owners will have which will tell you how much food you will need. The duration of the treatment and the dose in the feed is as specified by the FDA to ensure a proper treatment and to minimize bacterial resistance. All you need to know is the length of each of the fish in your pond.
How does MedFinn compare to other medicated feeds?
MedFinnis based on the science behind the treatment of bacterial infections. The dose of antibiotic in the feed, the amount of feed used and the duration fed are all very specific. The directions and antibiotics used in other products are often vague and you the user are often left guessing. If the feeding is done incorrectly there is a good chance you can either get an ineffective treatment or cause health issues in the fish.
Why do I need to treat with MedFinn for 10 days?
As with any antibiotic, if you do not use it long enough or at too low a dose you can create resistance to the antibiotic in the bacteria you are trying to eliminate. With the misuse and broad use of oxytetracycline over the years, there are many bacteria that are resistant to it thus we lose a tool in our toolbox. In the development of MedFinn it is not the medication that is different, it is the care we have put into the way it is used. We ensure that the quantity in the food is at the correct level and then we help you determine the amount you need to feed to ensure a proper treatment.
How much MedFinn do I need to treat my fish?
For each pound of fish in your pond you will need 0.15 lbs of MedFinn for the 10-day treatment. Each day 0.015 lbs will be fed for each pond of fish.
