[APD] RE: copper safe and fish drugs

Talking about how certain medicines are hard on fish, some of these sound down right nasty, maybe even to us.


All if it is a good read, but some of the scary stuff.

a.. Wear gloves and goggles when handling malachite green or formalin. Do not inhale the fumes of formalin and always handle in a well-ventilated area. Both are potentially dangerous. Malachite is a respiratory poison as well as being a suspected carcinogen. 

a.. It is likely that malachite green will be banned in the near future 

a.. Formalin should be stored in the dark and above 40C to prevent the formation of paraformaldehyde
