Can I use Quick Cure and Coppersafe together to treat Ich? Is Coppersafe suitable as an Ich preventative?
I have both of these products and noticed an out break of ich in one of my tanks and had recently moved fish from that tank to two other tanks. Im treating the tank with the obvious ich with quickcure and put coppersafe in the other tanks as a preventative. Is this correct? Can I use both products at the same time? Does the quickcure kill ick at all stages of its life cycle? or should you treat for longer than 2-3 days.
What you are doing is the best course of action. While both products are effective at controlling Ich, Quick Cure is the more aggressive treatment and is the best choice to handle the quickest. You are correct that Coppersafe can be used as a preventative.
The Ich life cycle is five days, so I recommend leaving medication in for that time period. Raising the temp of the aquarium will help speed up the process as well.
