But I heard that if you turn on your UV during the time that you medicate your tank the solution will dissolve.
Never heard of it. Although I know little to nothing about UV...

I agree with Biggen and that is why I suggested to turn the UV on and feed the fish good stuff and let the natural battle begin...
Only my humble opinion !

What is the GPH flow rate thru the UV? This is CRITICAL in efficent operation of your UV unit. Do you know what the manufactures min/max suggested flow rates thru the unit are?

Well, My fish ae still eating. as for the remedies, I have been treating the tank with Cupramin & while keeping my UV sterilizer on. Also, I feed them frozen food once a day and put some garlic Xtreme in the food, then in the afternoon, I give them Spectrum pellets along with Formula One & two.

I have my fish in a qt tank now. I will keep them in there for a month to treat for ich with coppersafe. Can you guys reccommend a good testkit for copper. I want to make sure to keep the levels safe for the fish...between .15 and .25 ppm, right??

Coppersafe is a chelated form of copper and should be tested with a chelated test kit. Seachem makes a decent one but whatever you decide to buy, be sure it is intended for use with chelated copper.

5 ml (1 tspn) treats 4 gal of actual tank water and only one dose should be necessary. It stays in the system for up to one month and should be at 0.25 ppm.

Cheers
Steve
