Chemical filtration means it can be removed by absorbent media such as carbon. That is why I typically recommend polyfilters. It will
absorb all forms of copper including chelates where carbon cannot. The problem with chelates is it is not easily absorbed by chemical media/resins which also means (thankfully) it is not readily absorbed by CaCO3
based animals, sand or rock. This still does not mean it's safe or should be used in a display tank.
>> is actually one of the better products available on the market today and gives you the benefit of both worlds. Fully ionic so it treats the parasitic problem and formulated like a chelate so it is not absorbed into the system. It is also one of the least stressful on fish in terms of toxicity.
