Highlights•Effects of ciprofloxacin (CIP) on freshwater plankton communities were investigated.•Aquatic ecotoxicity of CIP is more complicated in a microcosm than in monocultures.•CIP inhibits cyanobacteria in monocultures but not in the microcosm.•CIP suppressed cellular processes in eukaryotic plankton in the microcosm.•Reciprocal and antagonistic interactions might both contribute to the result.
