I had to order through petsolutions. I could not find any at local fish stores, I called 10 of them. If my bottle comes in today I can give you some. I am near Dekalb

I would consider using Paraguard in case your diagnosis is incorrect or there are other issues to deal with.

I have an almost full 4oz bottle of it you can have, I'm in buffalo grove near 53 and Dundee rd. You're welcome to it. Found it today while I was going through my fish stuff.

No. You cannot. You also cannot mix formalin with cupramine either. That will kill all your fish.

Thanks everyone! I actually got some paraguard, and formalin in the mail today. However, I am running a QT right now with both clowns using Cupramine... The tank is fallow and will remain that way for 10 more weeks... If I don't see a drastic improvement with copper or worsening occurs. I am going to rid the copper and start with formalin dips...

Thank you everyone for the offers!!! Only the female (black ocellaris) has what looks like brook, although it could be Velvet too, I don;t know... I lost my Kole tang last week to Ich for sure, so it could be Ich too I'm not sure... All I know is it's been 72 hours since the black one has been in QT, and she's showing better life! We'll see what happens... If it gets worse I may do a formalin dip and leave the copper going as well... But not mix them!
