I agree with you. Great for boosting their immune system and inducing an eating response, too.

I don't know, it's worked for me. While it took 2 months to treat my newly stocked 180 GAL predator reef, I have not lost a salt water fish to ICK. Other problems like not eating or stress yes, but not ICK alone. I have almost 300 GAL of salt water aquariums running at this time, not counting sumps Ect. All I'm stating is, dragging a sick fish from one aquarium to a another is more stressful than treating the aquarium they are already established in. By all means use copper or HYPO in a OT tank and let me know how you do. Maybe a little draino would help?
