Seachem Cupramine 100ml

Buffered active copper for marine or freshwater.
R 237,00

Cupramine is superior to copper sulphate, chloride and citrate: it is non-acidic, less toxic to fish, remains in solution, and does not contaminate the filter bed. It is superior to chelates: it is fully charged (ionic), and active at low concentrations, and is removable with carbon. 


Remove all invertebrates. Turn off UV sterilizer; remove chemical filtration. Use 16 drops (1ml) per 40L the first day, wait 48 hours, then repeat. In freshwater use half dose. Final copper concentration is 0.5 mg/L (0.25 mg/L in freshwater). Leave at this concentration for 14 days. Do not redose without testing (MultiTest: Copper). Do not use in conjunction with any other medication. If tank has ever been treated with an ionic copper (e.g. copper chloride, sulfate or citrate), test copper level after initial dosing. Although most fish tolerate Cupramine to 0.8mg/L, it is not advisable to exceed 0.6mg/L copper. Remove with carbon or CupriSorb. 

Cu+2 concentration = 10,000mg/L

100ml treats 2,000L
