Acriflavine is a topical antiseptic. It is derived from acridine. Acriflavine was developed in 1912 by Paul Ehrlich, a German medical researcher, and was used during the First World War against sleeping sickness.
In the field of aquarium fish it is used to treat a variety of ailments from fungal infections in fish to disinfecting and treating open wounds. Acriflavine is also used to disinfect fish eggs, thus preventing egg loss to fungus. It may also be used as an alternative to Malachite Green for treatment of disease in scale-less fish such as catfish, elephant-nose, and some members of the Characin family.
In microbiology it is also used as a component in a selective supplement for the isolation of listeria.
