Salifert Copper Test Kit Information

Salifert Copper Profi-Test
  • Copper is often used as a treatment for parasite infested fish and it is essential that the correct concentration is used as too high levels can be toxic to marine fish and invertebrates.
  • Tap water can also be naturally high in copper and it is therefore advisable to test for this on a regular basis.
  • The Salifert test kit offers a very sensitive and accurate test for measuring dissolved or weakly chelated copper with a pH of 7.5–9.
  • Lasts for several copper cures or provides sufficient for up to 50 tests on tap or aquarium water as a routine check.
  • Ca be used for marine, fresh and garden pond water
  • Strongly chelated copper will only be partly or not at all detected.

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Not for consumption.

  1. Add 2ml of water in the test vial.
  2. Add 5 drops of the Cu reagent and swirl gently for 5 seconds.
  3. Allow it to stand for 10 minutes. Some copper medications might use strongly bound copper and would require a waiting time of 20 minutes. In case of doubt compare the value after 10 and 20 minutes of waiting. The highest value should be noted.
  4. To obtain the copper concentration hold the test vial in front of you. Place the white part of the color chart firmly against the side of the test vial and look from the opposite side.

    A blue tinge lighter than the 0.1ppm value corresponds to approximately 0.05ppm.

    A color in between two color bars indicates a copper value in between those two values.

Comments: I have been seeking a copper test kit that can accurately and RELATIVELY EASILY measure copper in my salt water tank. Some do NOT measure the copper treatment that I have (SeaChem's Cupramine) which is a non-chealted form of the treatments. Some do not measure easily...the gradations between the color levels can be VERY difficult to read..not sure if others have same issues. I do like this one though I wish that either the test vial was more like a test tube OR they would use a larger sample of the aquarium water to measure. The relatively small amount of water in the test vial makes it a little problematic to read accurately and having the proper levels of the treatment is critical to curing.

Comments: I have always been satisfied with Salifert test kits in the past but their copper test kit makes no sense. The copper concentration for effective parisite treatment needs to be between 0.15ppm and 0.20ppm yet the test kits scale are 0.0, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50 etc. How does this make any sense?

Comments: I was pretty disappointed with this kit. It came with a plastic vial which stained blue after the first test which skewed every subsequent result. The regeant dropper is sloppy & I have to waste the first drop down the drain before I can get consistant drops to put into the vial. While it technically goes high enough to test for chelated copper, the colors are so ambiguous that it's difficult to tell of you have 1ppm or 2+ppm. It did not come with any sort of case or stand for the regeant/vial/syringe, and I was very disappointed in the documentation that came with it. The regeant label looked like somebody printed it out on their home printer & slapped it on with scotch tape. Sadly, I don't have another Copper kit to verify the results with. This kit is very unprofessional. I will not be buying any Salifert brand kits again!

Comments: I almost overdosed the copper since this test kit not detect any copper treatment in my hospital tank. Luckily that I have another API test kit availble to test and it was detected copper level after 5 min while Salifert test kit only showed the copper level after leave the test sample overnight. I guess I have the bad batch of this salifert test kit.
