Yeah I know lots of people that do, I am debating running it on an upcoming predator tank. Expensive, but piece of mind when feeding live feeder fish.
yeah I never intend on have inverts. This is a starter tank so I can learn the process. Once I have this fish only tank finally figured out, I plan on moving to a much larger coral/invert/fish tank.
Right now though, I clearly have some issues.
You never answered this one.
Ok I havent heard of this before.I always saw short term use in hospital tanks.
If you don't feed live foods and are done adding new fish you can stop your copper treating, just to save the money. If you don't plan on adding any new inhabitants and don't feed live food, then there is no way to add anything bad to the tank that would require you running copper to treat it. IMO
There are actually two types of copper you can run, copper sulphate and and ionic copper. The later is much more expensive, but IMO is the way to go.
And sorry can't help much with the fish, is there any spots or anything on him? Like white grains of salt? Large spots? anything?
I do Ro/di water changes from the local aquarium store. No problem about not being able to help out. This is odd to me too. I see nothing wrong with the fish on the outside. No spots or anything. This is frustrating but I guess there is nothing I can do really.
wont copper build up in the system and kill from to high of levels?
I use uv sterilizers on all 3 reef tanks.
