I've never had a shark, but have had excellent results with tri-sulpha (or tripple sulpha). It does play a bit with the bio-levels but if you had a bacterial suppliment or as you say do water changes that may be okay.

Again I had great success with this product and it's reef safe.

How will a sulpha based med intended as an antibiotic help with parasitic related issues other than to aid in secondary infection?

Cheers
Steve

I'm no chemist or biologist, but it worked exceptionally well. The product advertises itself as being a remedy for itch and velvet.

Took about a week (less really) to clear it up.

Hi Steve,

Do you have any personal experience using Cupramine with a shark? Sharks don't get Cryptocaryon irritans. The best solution is to seperate the shark from the other fish that need treatment.

Cheers,
Terry B

No I have not kept a shark and was under the impression sharks where quite resistant to Cryptocaryon but not invulnerable, I guess I stand corrected. The reason for suggesting the Cupramine was the animals where not able to be quarantined or seperated and the shark would be treated along with the rest.
