Be sure to test the copper levels daily. When needing water changes (and you will) be sure to dose the change water so the proper concentration (1.5-2.0 ppm
) is being maintained at all times.
Any idea of how long a have to Qt for?
14 days from the time the correct concentration is reaching using 5ml/4 gal
of water volume. Once the treatment is done, do a few good water changes and run carbon to remove the med. The fish must remained QT
'd after that for an additional 3 weeks. This will allow for a sufficient fallow period in the main tank and observation time for the recently treated fish for secondary infection.
