Can anyone recommend an antifungal treatment thats safe for axies, that can be obtained in australia??

I have just been through a tough time with my axies. They have managed to aquire a fungal infection on their gills.

I have searched though many posts, and spent alot of time finding out whats safe etc.

I know the usual treatment for this sort of thing is salt baths & refrigeration, and i have been doing these twice a day for close to a week. Thus far the salt baths have only seemed to stunt the problem.

Can anyone recommend an antifungal treatment, or offer me any reasurance that what i'm doing is the right thing?

I have bought a bottle of pimafix, which appeared to be the closet thing to furan 2 i could find, only to find out that it causes liver damage etc (and consequently i havn't used it).

I have tested my water, many times and all results are spot on, other than hardness which was a little down (i have added some aquarium salt to help this).

I know this is my first post and I am afraid of sounding a bit like a newbie, but I have already lost 1 so far (RIP Balls).
