Copper is commonly used in medications intended to treat parasitic infestations in fish. However, high levels of copper can also be harmful to fish and invertebrates. Seachem's Cupramine treatment is specially formulated to be less toxic and active at lower concentrations to eradicate your parasite problem without hurting the rightful inhabitants of your tank.
Cupramine can easily be removed from your aquarium water using carbon filter media.
Before using Cupramine, remove all invertebrates from your tank. Turn off UV sterilizer; remove chemical filtration.
