    Default Acriflavine dosage

    Due to some intense bullying, one of my Discus is missing a few scales on one side of its body, and a couple have "bruise" marks on the pectoral fins. I'm a bit scared that fungus or some other infection might appear. An experienced friend says dose with acriflavine. I have a bottle of 1% solution of the stuff. How much do I put in my 200-litre tank?

    Since posting the question, my pal has seen the fish and recommended 4.4ml which I have now added to the tank. Apart from the
    symptons mentioned, the fish are in excellent condition.

    The brand is Kusuri, it's a 1% solution of acriflavine. I'm in UK, not certain if it's available in USA.....

    The scales have grown back but there is still a whit-ish patch on a pectoral fin of one fish. After 5 days acriflavine treatment. I'll be changing 50% water daily for the next week and hope that will get them OK again. Otherwise the fish look good.
