I would double check.
The active ingredients say malachite green and formalin. I bet if copper were in it it would be an active ingredient, lol.
Is FW and SW quickcure the same?

Yep they are the same. I've had awesome experience with quickcure and have seen ich disappear within a couple days. I hope it's safe to use cuz then it'll be a great relief.

I remember calling the number on the bottle and asking if it was safe to use in my tank. They said not to use with corals, invertebrates, or live rock.

IMO, any treatment should be done in a QT.

Or, are your concerns the fishes sensitivity to copper?

Best to call and ask.

From the things you can't use with it I would think it has copper. Odd. I wider what the other ingredients have side effects with? I would definitely call

I never tried it on SW but since I have some I don't see why not unless it has side effects, but yeah I'll call first

Wow. That almost sounds like my sisters experience with her last lionfish. She had the lion and two eels in a tank. The eels paired up and ripped the lion to shreds!
