I remember someone posting that they use Prazipro and copper at the same time......Who was it?

I just got off the phone with Hikari the maker of Prazipro and they advise against mixing any treatments. I wanted to get more information from people already doing it.

Thanks

I just recently finished treating with prazipro in a tank that is treated with copper. My treatment was very successful. I did do a water change about a week after treatment was done.

I spoke to Hikari today the makers of Prazipro and they advised against me mixing treatments. So I am not sure if mixing copper and prazi is a good idea............

I do it all the time with Cupramine. I would not do it with any other copper treatment though.

Introduce the two medications a couple of days apart from each other, not all at once. This gives the fish time to adjust.

Same reason Seachem doesn't recommend mixing Cupramine with anything else. They don't have control over or know what others put in their meds and what interaction they may have. Pretty standard practice.

I mix Cupramine and Prazipro all the time with no issues whatsoever. Other coppers I have no idea if there is an issue as I don't ever use anything else but Cupramine anymore.

You are correct that is what they said. They (Hikairi) has no control over what Seachem puts in their product to know if there is an interaction. My only concern is what if Seachem does something different with their Cupramine. Now all of a sudden the 2 products might not mix together....
