Copper Treatment

Hey guys, well I caught marine velvet in the dt and have transferred my fish to a 20 gal quarantine. I followed the bottle directions but am wondering what ppm should I keep the copper in my tank to kill off the mv on the fish.

If you are following the bottle instruction then you are good. You only worry about the PPM of copper on your DT but not in QT. You can even double the dose in QT if you need to when MV are becoming uncontrollable.

No corals or inverts in my quarantine.

ive heard that even treating fish with copper, then moving them back to the dt can kill/harm inverts and corals. if you have any in your dt, make sure you "rinse" your fish before putting back in the dt. simply place them in a 5g bucket of clean sw for a few minutes before going back into the dt. that way they don't carry copper over.
