Im now treating the last two weeks with copper. The inly thing i'm not sure of is water changes and the copper content. It reads 2 drops per gallon then repeat in 48 hrs no carbon. Well so for two weeks i don't change water to keep that copper at a perfect level???

Another thing is this morning he has white places on him. I'm starting to wonder if all of this was injury spots from him rubbing up against LR and not the stupid solo cup i have in there. Ether way, the copper is in. Pain in the asssssssss

Be careful as the copper treatment is usually copper sulfate and the test kits some do not test that make sure bc copper sulfate content is different than copper and test kits need to say tests sulfate ......also use melafix all natural injury treatment

I never seen that but what you could do is call company and ask how to test for levels like what test kit to use ....I use coppersafe and most other do too not to familiar with that let me do some research and see what I can find
