    Yes, that is my preferred treatment for them. I have done it successfully.

    Mel, I cannot open this. It says page not found when I try. Can you look into it?

    This chart is super useful!! A big thank you to the OP for posting it and all of the great information in this thread.

    I have successfully treated both angels and tangs with coppersafe in qt. before, but I have always been super scared to put wrasse through a proper qt protocol. I have skipped qt with them in the past, but I will not do this moving forward.

    Isn't coppersafe the one I should use unstead of CP? I was under the impression they are two different medicines?

    The treatments fall under 3 main categories. Ionic Copper (Cupramine), Chelated Copper (Coppersafe, Copperaid), and Chloroquin Phosphate which we abbreviate as CP. It is not a copper product.

    For a melanurus wrasse -- is it recommended to use CopperSafe and a bowl of sand? I am not sure the final advice on substrate / copper and wrasses. TIA

    Yes - use a Pyrex bowl because glass does not absorb (but plastic will).

    I've read anecdotal remarks about not using copper on engineer gobies as they are scaleless. Does anyone have experience with this? These remarks are all 6-7 years old though and I'm hoping someone can offer more recent experience. Prefer to avoid TTM and just run copper on one tank. Not a big deal as I can use some 10gal's and do TTM.

    I only have 1 quarantine tank and I am bringing in a lot of fish that I saved. I am wandering the best quarantine practice I should use. The fish are as follows. zebra eels, marine betta, yellow tang, Vrolik's Wrasse, Pakistan Butterflyfish, Fu Manchu Lionfish,Dwarf/Zebra Lionfish. All fish are small under 3 inches with the exception of the eel. It is around a foot. I have Prazipro, Coppersafe, Cupramine, Rid Ich plus, Furan-2, General cure, Metroplex, Kanaplex. I would like to use just the one tank. I know some of these fish are not compatible with some of these medicens, I would like the best solution as these fish are coming from a not so good looking tank. I am also looking for a vet that will write me a script for CP but have be unsuccessful with the first vet I went to.

    Thanks in advance

    I used my python hose to empty my QT with cupramine by Seachem. I know. But it was it was an emergency. Is my my hose now ruined for regular use? I think it is. :( I ran 10 gallons of cupramine water thru it. The normal clear tube was changed to a small diameter piece of PVC.

    I may have answered my questions. I think the python hose is silicone. but what about the green plastic parts. more research...

    Thanks for posting!that’s a good question. I didn’t think about it yet because I’m just starting copper treatment for the first time and that’s a relief

    I didn’t know I could use sand during copper treatment I thought this was advised against because copper gets absorbed

    You have to measure copper daily because because the sand can change to amount of copper in the water depending how much the sand binds, and you have to discard the sand when you are done with the copper part of the treatment process.

    Hmmm now I have a decision to make because copper is stable and still on the rise to therapeutic levels my yellow wrasses hates not having sand but is also the dominant of the QT so I wasn’t to worried but I do hate seeing my fish stressed
