Re: Cupramine for Flame Angel
Because some fish tend to be a bit more sensitive than others, there is no way to guarantee a medication 100% safe for any fish. Cupramine is the gentlest copper medication available, and most fish do very well with the treatment. We have had many people treat flame angels for for ich using Cupramine with no adverse effects on the fish. You may want to consider dosing the Cupramine to a lower concentration than recommended, as the therapeutic range begins at around 0.25ppm. As with any medication, the fish should be monitored for signs of stress during treatment, and you can increase the concentration to 0.5ppm once the fish seems to have acclimated to it.
