For many years Elbagin has been a staple medication of Koi breeders, dealers and hobbyists around the world. Used in a number of ways, primarily as a supportive treatment against bacterial problems, and also when moving and handling Koi as a preventative treatment. However, last year production and distribution of Elbagin stopped. Japan Pet Design have released a 'new' version of Elbagin called Pafurazine F.
The product contains essentially the same ingredients as Elbagin. Clinical tests carried out by the National Fisheries University in Japan established its effectiveness to be the same as the original product.
