Careful with copper products especially if you have live plants or inverts like shrimp and snails or if you ever plan to get any...it can really be hard on them and often kill them as well as some fish species.... it can also leach into the tank and stay forever...so be careful with it.....maybe only use in QT that you will toss or only use for copper treatment..it is great for velvet however.....hope your girls get better.....

Eesh, did you get copper sulfate or malachite green? I've tried Coppersafe twice with severely infested rescues and it was completely ineffective. Malachite green is found in medications like QuICK Cure, Jungle's Ick Clear, and many other ich medicines. It's sometimes called victoria green.

I'll be leaving to go get the meeds in about 15 minutes, so, Jungle's Ich clear is the way to go?

I have used both. They worked fine for me.. But I prefer the coppersafe... So you could possibly try both.

I ended up getting tetra ick guard, which had victoria green as the active ingredient, however it's in tablet form, and one tablet treats 10 gallons. How should I go about treating the girls?

I would just break off the smallest piece you can and add it to their bowls...

I'm really worried about being inaccurate... I have a 2.5 gallon bucket, so, I guess I could break it into fourths and then dose the bucket and pour the water into their qt tanks.

How big are the tanks? I was thinking you had a cup or some type of bowl..
