View Full Version : QT tank and copper ?

11/16/2009, 08:18 PM
I have had a fish in qt with less that the recommended dose of copper for 4 weeks. Am I wasting time with a gradual increase in copper? Should I increase to full dose and wait a couple more weeks before putting him in the display tank?
Thanks for any input.

follow the directions of the manufacture is the best place to start.

Yes follow the directions perfectly. I would also add the copper SLOW and wait 48 hours between and test between. Some fish are real sensitive to copper so the slower you raise it the better your chances of catching it to save the fish. I speak from expierience.
