CopperSafe

I am treating my 220 gallons tank with CopperSafe for ich. Since a have the ammonia slightly high and therefore need to do some water change, I need to know what's the ppm capper value that I have to maintain in the tank during the treatment to be sure that is effective. I test it once and the reading is at 1.0 ppm. Is that too high?
Thank you,
Daniela

Coppersafe is a chealated form of copper and cannot be read by a standard copper test kit, you have to get a special kit which read chealated copper (Kordon makes one), to get an accurate reading. Copper should be maintained at a level of .15-.20 for therapeutic treatment.

Never heard of it, but if it will read chealated, it should work. Make sure there are not special instructions to read chealated.
