Cupramine effectively eradicates Oodinium, Cryptocaryon, Amyloodinium, Ichthyophthirius, and other ectoparasites of both freshwater and marine fish.

It is superior to copper sulfate, chloride & 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), active at low concentrations, and is removable with carbon.



  • There is more than a four-fold concentration gap between the minimal therapeutic dose (0.2 mg/L) and the toxic dose (0.8 mg/L).
  • Cupramine is easily removable with chemical filtration.
  • It is highly effective and safe in freshwater as well as marine water.



Directions 

Before Treating 

  • Remove all invertebrates - these are extremely sensitive to copper and will not tolerate treatment with a copper-based medication.
  • Turn off UV filters, ozone filters, and remove chemical filtration like MatrixCarbon and Purigen.
  • Do not use in conjunction with any other medication.

Do not use any products which contain reducing agents (conditioners, ammonia binders, etc.) while using Cupramine. 

Treatment 

  • If the bottle has a dropper cap, use 20 drops (1 mL) per 40 L the first day, wait 48 hours, then repeat.
  • On non-dropper caps, each inner ring is 1 mL. 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).
  • 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 0.8 mg/L, it is not advisable to exceed 0.6 mg/L copper.



Finish the Full Treatment 

  • Ich, velvet, and many other parasites spend a large portion of their life cycle as a cyst that is immune to medication and hiding in the substrate of your tank.
  • Remember that you need to finish the full treatment even if you can’t see parasites on the fish!



After Treating 

  • Cupramine can be removed using carbon or CupriSorb.
  • Leave the copper-absorbing media in your tank for at least a week after the copper concentration has reached 0 to ensure all traces of the medication have been completely removed.
