remove her to clean saltwater, I've seen some recover from copper shock. sorry she's not doing well

If the first step toward recovery is admitting you have a problem...then I will stay in denial ;)

Can I mix Prime and Kanaplex? I cannot contact Seachem as they are closed now. I don't want my fish to die! Someone please say they have done this before without any ill effects?

I noticed a lot of posts going back some time saying that some combination of prazi + something killed their fish. I treated my fish in hypo with prazi because prazi is a relatively mild treatment and also it is indicated for freshwater as well, so obviously hypo shouldn't be a problem.

I noticed my water in the hospital tank got very cloudy and the fish started to become listless/lethargic. Not acting like themselves, not swimming around much. Then I noticed the chromis start gasping at the surface.

I tested the water and ammonia and nitrite were zero and nitrates weren't too bad either. I started doing a bunch of searches and research and learned that the prazi can cause bacterial blooms due to the carbon in it and that the bacteria quickly use up all the oxygen so you need to more aggressively oxygenate the water.

I hooked up a powerhead that has an airline to aerate the water aggressively and within an hour or so all the fish were back to their normal selves.

I also learned an interesting thing that chromis are actually like canaries in the coal mine. They are more sensitive to low oxygen levels, or so I read. At least now I know what to look for.

Anyway, with all the discussions about prazi, I thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth of experience.

Don't use ANY water conditioner with Cupramine, it will make the Cupramine much more toxic at a lower dose. To the Prazi question I would want to know what your trying to treat and with what? Why do you want to use formalin and PP?

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs
