copper safe
 
so...my boyfriend keeps asking my thoughts on coppersafe.....i dont know much about it....do any of you lknow anything about it or have ever used it??

What for do you want to have it, i mean which sickness do you wanna cure with it?

Pers I'd not get it cause all my tanks are heavily planted for one, have snails AND shrimp (which I"d rather not kill either of them) and from what I found out, i'd not wanna kill them with it. I had ick 2x so far; dialed up heat and used QuIck Cure and all is fine incl my plants :-)

a frontosa breeder recommended it for our frontose they MAY have ick......

Well first I'd wanna make sure they have ick, which you WILL see in less then a 24hrs range. Then IF that's the case dial up the temp a few degrees every few hrs. Then pers I'd stick to just normal ick meds (just like I said for the safety of all inhabits in my tanks and the plants).

i agree with you 100%...i moved the front from the display tank into QT ...he has some white spots on his lower lip/jaw area but no where else
