Hey everyone. Had a velvet outbreak from a non-QTd fish and learned our lesson, everything to QT from now on!

We were able to rescue 5 of the fish and get them into a hospital tank that we’ve been treating with CopperSafe and testing every water change. All water is medicated before being added in water changes so there are no drops throughout.
We started with a Seachem copper test but found it hard to read so switched to a Hanna checker on 12/18. I’m attaching a pic of our levels as measured but I’ve seen some conflicting info about the therapeutic dose for CopperSafe.

I initially read 1.5-2.0ppm but have seen suggestions as high as 2.5ppm. With the attached levels have we completed a full treatment or are these fish in for another month?
