Cupramine™

Copper treatment for external parasites

Active at low concentration (does not precipitate)

Bound on amine so it is not as toxic to fish

100% Removable with carbon or Cuprisorb

 

Overview

Cupramine™ effectively eradicates Oodinium, Cryptocaryon,Amyloodinium, Ichthyophthirius, and other ectoparasites of both freshwater andmarine fish. It is superior to copper sulfate, chloride & citrate: it isnon-acidic, less toxic to fish, remains in solution, and does not contaminatethe filter bed. It is superior to chelates: it is fully charged (ionic), activeat low concentrations, and is removable with carbon.

 

There is more than a four-fold concentration gap between theminimal 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 safein freshwater as well as marine water.

 

Indications

Cupramine™ is appropriate for treating a variety ofectoparasites of both freshwater and marine fish. Below are some of the morecommon infections treatable with Cupramine™. Be aware that many diseases andinfections share similar physical and behavioral symptoms, e.g. clamped fins,lesions, loss of appetite.

 

Ich (White Spot)

 

Velvet

ich

Ichthyophthirius (freshwater) / Cryptocaryon (saltwater)

Looks like salt sprinkled on the fish’s body and fins.Usually accompanied by twitching, flashing, and other signs of stress andirritation. Several parasites are grouped under this name, but the symptoms arealmost identical. Ich is among the most common infections of fish, and isentirely treatable with diligence and attention to water quality.

 

Suggested Treatment Period:

14 days at full concentration (0.25 mg/L for freshwater, 0.5mg/L for saltwater)

 

Special Considerations

It is very important with this parasite to maintain thecopper concentration for the full treatment period. A drop in the copperconcentration will allow the parasite to multiply and reinfect the fish.

 

Due to the nature of this parasite, it is normal for thevisible signs of infection to get worse before they get better. The medicationis still working, but it takes some time for the salt-like cysts on the fish toclear out. Keep up the treatment and the visible spots should clear soon!

 

Directions

Before Treating

Remove all invertebrates – these are extremely sensitive tocopper and will not tolerate treatment with a copper-based medication. Turn offUV filters, ozone filters, and remove chemical filtration like MatrixCarbon™and Purigen®. Do not use in conjunction with any other medication. Do not useany 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 40L (10.5 US gallons) the first day, wait 48 hours, then repeat. On non-droppercaps, each inner ring is 1 mL. In freshwater use half dose. Final copperconcentration is 0.5 mg/L (0.25 mg/L in freshwater). Leave at thisconcentration 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 fishtolerate 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 portionof their life cycle as a cyst that is immune to medication and hiding in thesubstrate of your tank. Remember that you need to finish the full treatmenteven if you can’t see parasites on the fish!

 

After Treating

Cupramine™ can be removed using carbon or CupriSorb™. Leavethe copper-absorbing media in your tank for at least a week after the copperconcentration has reached 0 to ensure all traces of the medication have beencompletely removed.
