If you are using copper treatments, you MUST have a copper test kit to ensure the copper is at the recommended theraputic levels (0.5 ppm or 0.5 mg/l). A Salifert, Red Sea or Seachem copper test kit will show you the correct levels in your tank. An API test kit will not work with Cupramine.

he never even mentioned testing it he said keep it in there for 3or4 weeks.if he does'nt eat he will be dyeing sooner than that.it has been near a week since he last ate.it sucks ,he is the only store for 30 or 40 miles.i will never get one from the mail.i paid $40.00 for a copperband and 40.00 to ship.of coarse it arrived when it was 10 degrees out and arrived dead.they did say they would give me another but i would have to pay for shipping.$120.00 for a fish when i can get it for 35 at the store,never again
