Will this kill my inverts?

So I am battling internal parasites. I am squirting this in the water everytime I feed them (as per instructions).

Will this kill my inverts?

Copper is not a listed ingredient.....

Thanks in advance,
Andy

Should be just fine.

I've used anti-parasite medications before with no ill effects.

What does the bottle say? If it says its safe for inverts, or doesn't mention that it specifically kills inverts, it should be safe.

The main reason some meds kill inverts is due to copper. Copper hits toxic levels very quickly in inverts as compared to fish or plants.

Many ich treatments use copper and will surely kill shrimp, crabs, crayfish, and most snails.
