    I dont think that was me sweetie. I know some other people in the industry, but I don't think I know him. I'll go take a look at the thread though.

    I have a question if I may in regards to copper treatment. I have a goby that I want to put through copper but he's literally no bigger than 3/4in, and I'm worried that he is so small that it'll be too harsh. I can certainly do ttm but with how prevalent velvet is I'm not sure I want to take that risk. What is your opinion on this situation @melypr1985?

    What goby is it? Yasha haze? yellow rose? I've put the yellow rose goby through copper no problem. I think with care, it should be just fine. The size of the fish doesn't dictate their ability to withstand copper treatment. it's an individual thing in most cases. Try it slowly, if they display copper intolerance, then you can always switch to TTM.

    Sorry it's a green banded goby. I've always used coppersafe.

    I think he will be ok. If you are worried, then going slow is always an option. :)

    Wish I remembered this list was here, as I just tried to put 2 already beat up Lyre Tail Anthias that I bought at a discount through CP. One died after 48hours the other 72hours.:(

    Never use CP on wrasses, anthias or Hippo Tangs. At least for the time being.

    Yes I know about the wrasses and tangs but did not know about the anthias. Lesson Learned!

    Thanks Mel, but I can't help it. I'm a nurse so having anything die in my care bites.
