By Salifert 

Copper is often used as a treatment for parasite infested fish and it is essential that the correct concentration is used as too high levels can be toxic to marine fish and invertebrates.

Tap water can also be naturally high in copper and it is therefore advisable to test for this on a regular basis.

The Salifert test kit offers a very sensitive and accurate test for measuring dissolved or weakly chelated copper from 0.05mg/L to 2mg/L.

Lasts for several copper cures or provides sufficient for up to 50 tests on tap or aquarium water as a routine check.

Important Copper should never be used on a reef tank or system holding invertebrates. In fact we do not recommend any so called reef safe disease treatments, as all seem to affect one invert or another. Disease in fish is largely the result of stress, remove these stress factors and fish become more able to fight disease on their own. If all else fails remove the fish to a seperate matured sick tank and treat with copper to makers specifications.
