Maracide and use with BN Plecos
 
Has anyone had any issues using Mardel's Maracide when treating BN plecos for parasites?

I'm having a Chilodonella (parasite) problem. I'm using coppersafe to clear it from a couple of tanks housing angels and corys. No issues so far. I realize many here oppose use of copper in a tank, but it's what I used, so that's not my question ;-)

I have a ton of BN fry w/parents in another tank that's likely infected as well. Since BN plecos are supposedly sensitive to copper, I want to find a safe alternative.

Also, for my future reference, has anyone ever use Maracide in a shrimp tank? Bad idea?
