    Hello Everyone - Question

    I am currently doing the TTM and about to use PraziPro treatment before the 3rd transfer. I notice that one of the anthias has a red rash. Ammonia has been in check. I have other 5 anthias an none show signs. Can I use Melafix with PraziPro - or should I wait until the TTM period is over?

    Thank you.

    I would wait until 12 hours after adding Prazipro to add any additional medications. You don't need to wait until the 4th transfer.

    What do you mean bump up vitamins. I feed it different type of food. Mainly hikari, mysis, krill, seaweed. Am I missing something?

    Most foods have vitamins and aminos in it already.
    You can as I do 2-3X per week, add liquid vitamins to food while thawing. I use Selcon, but there is brightwell vitamin supplement as well as kent Zoe and other vitamins on market. The content in fish foods is just not enough.

    Fairy wrasses as a whole have been deemed safe for CP per talking to @Humblefish. Have two in CP right now with no problems.

    +1 Cirrhilabrus & Halichoeres are both safe in CP. Jury is still out on all other genera of wrasses.

    When using copper does it kill nitrifying bacteria? So lots of water changes to keep ammonia down?

    Yes, but surviving bacteria quickly repopulate themselves and become resistant to copper.

    My experience is that a healthy biofilter can be maintained through a copper treatment. It is very difficult to establish a biofilter, even using bottled bacteria products, while copper is in the water.

    Hi, can you tell me about if using another treatment like Hikari Prazy pro at the end of copper treatmemt can affect both (treatments and fish).

    Prazi and copper can be run at the same time, although I personally avoid doing so and mixing medication.

    It’s best in my experience to perform one treatment at a time.

    If you suspect flukes when treating in copper, you can remove the fish and give a 5 minute freshwater dip (pH buffered). This will remove flukes without killing them on the fish (causing secondary infections).

    It’s a much better approach than using prazi on a heavily infested fish straight away.

    The link above shows our current process, you can use them concurrently just ensure lots of oxygen via bubbler and powerhead to be safe during treatment. But yes it’s common to use Prazi and copper on a fish prior to addition to the display tank.
