Using General Cure:Im doing my first quarantine and Ive been doing cupramine. I now want to add api general cure as humble fish reccomends. I think he reccomends doses 7 days apart but api says 48 hours. Just little confused.
I think humble fish reccomends to do copper and GC at same time in QT right? I cant find it and I think hes not around so thought id askUsing General Cure:
Using a brine shrimp (fine mesh) net, pour the packet into the net. Lower the net into the tank and massage the net expressing the GC into the water.
Wait 5-7 days. Do a 25% water change. And then re-dose the General Cure.
Again wait 5-7 days. Do a 25% water change.
Observe for 10 days or so. Sometimes a second round of GC is needed.
Thanks that helps. makes senseYes, you can do both if you feel the need based on the fish's condition. I prefer to do copper first (to head off Velvet, Ich, etc.) and then the GC after the copper is out of the tank. It's lower stress for the fish's immune system, gut, organs. But if my fish were showing signs of internal parasites or flukes and no velvet or Ich, I'd treat with GC first.
