Use Caution

I used this product to treat Ick before I had any time to thoroughly research other options. Though it may have done the trick, I do highly recommend slowly turning the temperature of your tank up to 86 degrees for 2 weeks (which I did in combination with using CopperSafe). The increased temperature speeds up the parasite's lifecycle and when the spots (parasite) falls off the fish it will die and not reproduce in the higher temperature. I would highly recommend CopperSafe if you do not have any plants. The plantlife in my 75gal aquarium took a big hit after using, and I am still trying to nurse them back to health. But I will say my fish are alive and well, so there is something to be said for that! All in all, I would recommend giving just the temperature method a try.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Pleco had outbreak of what it appears to be as Ick, he acually had it for awhile but i didn't catch on to it till it progressivley got worse. He got to the point where he looked like he was about to die. Went out and bought this since it was recommended, then came home & put it in the tank. next day It was going away. after 2 days now, it's completly gone. he's back to eatting! hoping soon he'll grow back is fins. but over all this is amazing !!! can't believe he lived.
I would recommend this to a friend!

My betta has been acting strangely for awhile, he just wasn't as active as he was and occasionally would dashing around his bowl and it took me awhile to figure out what it was. I figured out that he had some kind of external parasite despite never seeing any sign of ich or velvet or external parasites on him, but his symptoms fit perfectly. After I got this and added some to his bowls, he was back to himself within two days! My other betta is showing signs of fin rot so I'm going back to get some Maracyn.

After purchasing a fish, I got a case of ich in my tank. Coppersafe killed the ich within a week. My tank was clear and no outbreaks were noticed afterwards. Kills ich quickly and did not appear to stress my fish. I highly recommend this product!

One of my fish got Ich parasite all over his tail fin and a bit on top fin, CopperSafe took care of it VERY effectively! First day did not notice improvement, but end of 3rd day was clear from it as new! Most importantly - did not stain water as the blue medicine, and took care of Ich eggs (as it works for a month).
I would recommend this to a friend!
