If you need a reliable solution that will efficiently get rid of ectoparasites in your tank, then grab the Seachem Cupramine Copper from Pet Store right away. Ectoparasites are small organisms that stick and feed on your fishes' body. If not treated, your fish will not grow and develop well. Using this solution will help treat your aquarium water quickly. This is great to use on both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. This is made of high grade chemicals that are safe to use. It is non-acidic making it safe for your inhabitants' health. This will not affect the mineral balance of your water when used. Compared to other ectoparasite treatments, this is easier to use.

It comes with a complete set of directions for proper use and dosage. Simply turn off your UV sterilizer and remove your invertebrates before treatment. The Seachem Cupramine Copper is a smart choice to buy. It costs affordable and is very convenient to use. An ml of this solution can effectively treat 40 liters of water. You can simply keep this solution inside a high cabinet to keep it away from children's reach. Your fishes will surely become healthy and free from parasites with this efficient formula. Grab one now.

SeaChem Cupramine ™ effectively eradicates ectoparasite of both freshwater and marine fish. It has all the advantages of copper sulfate and chelated copper, but not the disadvantages. Like copper sulfate, it is fully ionic and effective at low concentrations. The cupric (Cu+2) charge is fully active. Like chelates, it is safe for fish and is not precipitated in the filter bed. Unlike both, there is more than a 4x concentration gap between the minimal therpeutic dose and the toxic dose. Unlike copper salts, it is stable in the aquarium, and, unlike chelates, it is easily removed by chemical filtration. Unlike other copper products, it is both highly effective and safe in freshwater as well as marine water. It does not damage the filter bed. Cupramine™ contains 10,000 mg/L of copper and 100 mL treats over 500 gallons. Do not use in conjuction with ParaGuard™. Test for copper with our MultTest: Copper™ kit. Marine or freshwater use.

Caution: Turn off your UV sterilizer while treating with Cupramine. UV will break up the ionic bond in Cuprimine; causing it to be much more toxic.

Use it for ich. Product Review by MIKE WEIXELMAN (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I've been using this product, exclusively, to treat all my new fish which have been exposed to ich. It works well, and I haven't had any signs of the parasite since I started treating my fish with it 6 years ago.

Cupramine For ICH treatment Product Review by ALFREDO FARINA (Posted on 1/25/12)

Comments: As you might have imagined I bought this product in order to treat for ICH in my quarantine tank before introducing new acquisition to the Display Tank. The product works great, and its a lot safe than other copper medication I have tried. They have great customer support when I contacted them with a question! Overall I cant complain it has been great!

Seachem Cupramine Product Review by Jojo (Posted on 6/5/11)

Comments: Works great for SW Ich. I recommend this for it over Paraguard to make sure it does the job right the very first time.

I've used this in a FOWLR tank with LR and LS (which isn't the recommended method of treating fishes) but I didn't have a big enough tank to QT 3 triggers/2 angels/3 tangs/8 chromis and other misc fishes without major ammonia spike and increased stress on the fish.

With LR/LS in the tank, it took about 2.5x the amount recommended since the LR/LS absorb a little. After a week of dosing, I was able to get a stable reading of .5.

I treated for a 4 week period to make sure ich was eliminated. After using about 3 Polyfilter pads to remove the Cupramine in my 125 (150 gal total) for about two months, I introduced two cleaner shrimps/emerald crabs/ RBTA and soft corals into my tank without any issue with Copper poisoning.

I highly recommend Seachem's version of copper treatment for ich!

Excellent product Product Review by grantypoo (Posted on 5/28/09)

Comments: I think this is a great product. It's easy to use and 100% kills ich, which is what my intentions were for it. All it takes is two weeks of monitoring your copper levels with an appropriate test kit. I used Seachem's copper test kit and had no problems. Two weeks later, my fish are all ich free and happy. I have some delicate fish and none of them had any problems with Cupramine, which has to do with it being an organic chelated copper that is very easy on fish. Traditionally delicate fish like puffers do very well with a copper product like Cupramine.
