Hi All,

I’ve just set up a QT tank and about to start preventative treatment for Ich, velvet, flukes etc. I was wondering if anyone knows if I can run cupramine alongside Flubendazole?

Thanks.

Hi,  I don't believe you can.  Both the cupramine and wormer (flubendazole) say not to use with anything else.

Have you thought of having a UV on the QT ? Then you can worm the fish  ,I have only ever wormed Discus but I do rely on UV with new stock . In fact I have this on the main tanks and never use QT. As for worming obviously you cant do this in a display tank because of the inverts.
How serious is the worm problem in fish and is it with no intermediate host going to be a problem?

Hi Siniestro30, what time span are you thinking for copper treatment? I ask this as I've read to run it for 30 days, bit long, but apparently the trophonts are only killed in free swimming stage
