Clowns + Velvet treatment results

Well after treating for 3 weeks with Coppersafe and seeing no improvement I broke my cardinal rule of mixing medications. I added 100 drops of quick cure to the big tank to mix with the coppersafe.

Much to my surprise most of the velvet spots had sloughed off pip within an hour. There are still a few spots remaining (probably much younger parasites) but the improvement has been amazing. I would imagine that recovery will be rapid at this point.

Something else amazing, my 2 Amano shrimp that I could not remove before treating are still alive! I swear these guys are like cockroaches... you just cant kill them..
