Can anyone advise the strength Coppersafe needs to be at I know copper power is 2.5 for 30 days any difference ? Used copper power for the last 3 years with no success wiping out parasite from my DT (fish Only), hoping Coppersafe works better also Hanna Checker fine with copper safe. Thanks

Theyre both similar with same treatment regimen. Coppersafe may be a little more effective but not significantly

It's real hard to keep copper at the proper dose in a display tank. Probably why the Coppersafe is not working.

+1, Coppersafe, when measured at the dose listed on the bottle will test out at 2.5ppm. Oddly, the instructions say to dose it at 2 ppm.....

My tank was framed! Do you have a rimmed or rimless aquarium?
