Special Notes on Coppersafe Solution
Copper levels are commonly measured as free or as total copper.
The unique formulation of Coppersafe solution maintains a total copper level of 1.16 ppm to 1.17 ppm when used as directed. Copper test kits that measure Chelated Copper will help you to actively monitor copper levels when using Coppersafe solution.
Coppersafe solution may cause an adverse reaction with some sensitive invertebrates. Invertebrates without an exoskeleton such as jellyfish, anemones, etc. should be removed before treatment. Coppersafe solution may be harmful to plants, amphibians and snails. Not recommended for use in Reef aquariums.
Do not use Coppersafe solution with fish species that have a known sensitivity to copper.
For infections of: Ick, Flukes (Gyrodactylus), Anchor worms, Velvet/Protozoan diseases and other external parasites. Ichthyophthirius (Ich) - White spot disease is caused by a parasite that attacks all freshwater and saltwater fish species. The fish appears to be covered by numerous white spots. The parasite is easily transmitted from one fish to another. Ich can only be controlled in the free-swimming stage of the parasite. Five to 30 days may be needed before the infestation is completely eradicated.
Coppersafe solution remains active for over one month in the aquarium. It is a safe, stable, non-staining concentrate that does not color aquarium water. Be sure to add Coppersafe solution to replacement water when water changes are made. This will maintain the therapeutic level of Coppersafe solution.
Because Coppersafe solution is so stable in water, partial water changes are the quickest way to remove it from the water.
