Hi,
I have a question on UV use on FOT, Can we Run UV on tank treated with copper?
Thank you

Noooooooo. Bad idea - it makes the cupramine many more times toxic (deadly). Turn it off now if you flipped the uv on

When in doubt call the customer service number on the bottle, Seachem has excellent customer support

+1 I agreed with you it was a bad idea, sometimes people need to hear it from the manufacturer

Thank you. Actually I know that, but seems not much info on detail why cannot use UV. Found the water have some green tint on it, so thought of using UV.

Yeah dont do that. Many years ago when I worked at a LFS we dosed a store system with copper and forgot to turn the UV off. So many dead fish :(
