i guess im a cat now... also you could use 6x's the amount of water.. i know it seems weird, but that's for sure correct. Dilute it down 6x's and then you'd multiply by six to see what it is on your card... 6x's the water on card .4*6 =2.4 youre set then

Doesn't copper also kill the beneficial bacteria in the rocks and sand? I would've definitely gone hypo since it's much safer for the fish.

If you think about it, why would it kill ich and marine velvet but not the beneficial bacteria? The copper doesn't know the difference lol. If you haven't started yet, I would read up more just to make sure. Everywhere I look says to only do copper in a bare quarantine tank.

I know that ich is a parasite... which could change some things. But either way I removed some lr and placed it in a 10g so that way if I were to need it, its there...gonna watch parameters for next few days and then prob after a week or so if the treatment works, ill put the rock back in after doing a decent pwc... atleast that's my gameplan right now...
