Seachem Cupramine effectively eradicates Oodinium, Cryptocaryon, Amyloodinium, Ichthyophthirius, and other ectoparasites of both freshwater and marine fish. It is superior to copper sulfate, chloride & citrate: it is non-acidic, less toxic to fish, remains in solution, and does not contaminate the filter bed. It is superior to chelates: it is fully charged (ionic), active at low concentrations, and is removable with carbon.
Instructions for Use:
Remove all invertebrates. Turn off UV sterilizer; remove chemical filtration.
If the bottle has a dropper cap, use 16 drops per 10.5 gallons the first day, wait 48 hours, then repeat.
On non-dropper caps, each inner ring is 1 mL. In freshwater use half dose. Final copper concentration is 0.5 mg/L (0.25 mg/L in freshwater).
Leave at this concentration for 14 days. Do not redose without testing with a copper test kit.
Do not use in conjunction with any other medication. Remove with carbon or CupriSorb.
