Anything that will add strength to the biofilter is a good thing. It still won't prevent the possibility of unstable water conditions once treatment starts though.

Cheers

Is it ok to use a protein skimmer, or will that remove some of the copper?

I have an extra prism I could use.

I think that it's not ok, but you tell me yes or no. TIA!

Nothing wrong with using the skimmer with Cupramine. Just be sure you monitor the levels to be sure. The main concern with Cupramine is carbon or other sorbant materials.

Cheers
Steve

Yes, the skimmer will help remove excess DOC before the bacteria can in turn convert all of it to ammonia. It will definately add benefit.

Cheers
Steve

Well the Naso has been in treatment, and I am begining to think that I made a mistake in my thinking. The lfs said that a young naso will have some juvenile spots as mine does. I was afraid that it was ick or velvet. I have been reading and it seems that what the lfs said was true. The spots are not bad, and there are only a few. What really tips me off, is when I mess around the fish in the tank, the spots increase and get real bright. What do yu think?

Yes some species of Naso do have spots in their juvenile stage but they are dark, flat and somewhat symetrical. I would be sure before removing the med. Any chance of a pic?

Cheers
Steve

I will try for the pic. The spots on the tang are off white, and they are not a consistent round color. They are also flat, not raised at all.
