Best Ich Treatment - keep cupramine handy

Comments Cupramine is the best treatment for parasites including ich. It is a good value, not toxic to fish, toxic to parasites, stays in active soltuion, and can be removed by carbon filtration. Caution: do not treat invertebrates with copper. Keep a bottle of cupramine and a quarantine tank (QT - no substrate, air pump, QT rocks or PVC hiding place for treated fish) ready for signs of ich. Do not use carbon filtration in QT; cupramine copper can be removed with carbon filtration. The therapeutic dose is reached within 48 hrs (0.5mg/L); treatment lasts two weeks beyond the end of signs of ich. Toxic levels of copper (0.8mg/L) are well above the recommended therapeutic level. A copper testing kit is recommended if re-dosing or you have calcium levels above 400 ml/L (which causes more copper to be in solution).


Liked about it (1) Effective, safe ich treatment in QT
(2) More control over copper concentration as therapeutic dose (0.5mg/L) is significantly lower than excessive dose (0.8mg/L)
(3) Good value saving fish and avoiding display tank (DT) ich problems


Didn't like (1) Use in QT; invertebrates cannot be treated with copper.
(2) Best to monitor copper levels with test kit. Do not use carbon filtration which will remove copper from QT.
(3) Dangerous in eyes: rinse and immediately seek medical attention.

Used with effective results.

General I have used this product on a couple occasions for treating ill fish and have found it's claims to be a milder version of a "copper" treatment to be correct. I have not used other copper-based products on the market personally but have heard mixed reviews. With that said, my experiences with this product were both successful and relatively easy. Because of it's effects on invertibrates in the reef tank, this product is to only be used in a quarantine tank. My method is to dose for a month with weekly water changes and a renewed dose of this medication. The instructions on the bottle are easy to read and understand. After treatment, the effected fish returned to the display with little signs of the previous disorder. A second dosing has never been needed for any outbreak treated.


Liked about it Little visible ill effects with q-tank treatment over long-term and during dips for new additions.


Didn't like Nothing at this time.

Never use another parisite medication again

General This is the best stuff I've used in the qt period. Haven't lost a single fish to ich or velvet since I started using it.


Liked about it Easy to use, follow directions, and the best part you can remove it.


Didn't like The applicator is hard to get out of the bottle.
