Seachem cupramine. Salifert copper test.

Thanks everyone.

But . . . keep in mind the Hanna's margin of error is 0.05 ppm +/- :eek:
Wow..... I just read some of humble fish reports about copper and treatments, apparently cupramine is a copper that has extremely very little room for therapeutic level and that copper safe is much better to use. Oh well, live and learn.

"Chelated" coppers like Copper Power or Coppersafe are a larger dose of copper and a wider therapeutic range. Much more wiggle room for error.
That being said, with the Hanna, using Cupramine, is much safer to dose now than with those color matching test kits.

Thanks for the reassurance.
