Use 5 ml (1 tsp) per 4 U.S. gallons (15 L), or 8 oz (1 cup) per 190 U.S. gallons (337.5 L). This dose maintains a total copper level of ~2.0 ppm, no redosing is necessary for up to one month. Treatment time will vary based on the infection you are treating.
  • For best results, use Coppersafe in a quarantine tank.
  • Remove ion-exchange resins and heavy metal adsorbing filter pads during treatment.
  • Discontinue use of skimmer during treatment.
  • Carbon does NOT need to be removed during treatment.
  • UV Sterilizer can be used during treatment.
  • Use with caution on aquariums with scaleless fish and other copper-sensitive livestock - do not use Coppersafe solution with fish species that have a known sensitivity to copper.
  • No contraindications: can be used with all other Fritz products and meds.
  • NOT SAFE FOR USE WITH INVERTEBRATES: corals, snails, shrimp, clams, jellyfish, other crustaceans or molluscs; remove these types of livestock before dosing.
  • Coppersafe may be harmful to plants and amphibians.
  • Only one dose is needed to achieve the therapeutic level of 1.5 - 2.0 ppm copper. No second dose is needed during treatment.
  • To prevent accidental overdose in an unknown volume of water, add approximately 1/4 or 1/2 dose and test before adding additional copper.
  • If water changes must be performed during treatment, treat the volume of replacement water with Coppersafe to maintain the therapeutic level.
  • Perform large water changes immediately until a test kit reads below 2 ppm copper.
  • Test with a reliable copper test kit that measures above 2.0 ppm Total copper, or a kit that measures chelated copper.
  • After treatment, remove copper with water changes, or use a copper-specific adsorbing resin or polyfilter until the copper level returns to zero.
