I think it should be, if the stressor is removed. (In this case, that may be the CP.) I wish I could guarantee it, but guarantees are hard to come by for me lately . . .

It’s not so bad when you have a Hanna copper checked and a reliable copper product such as Copper Power! :)

Oh I’ve been there, and was currently until an infection took out the wrasse. Lost two supermale in two days. Believe me, I get it. It’s these gram negative bacterial infections that are killing me... hit in less than 24 hours and seem to be quite common.

I agree. I just finished 2 weeks of furan2 metro and Kano. I don't play I treat for ick last most fish can handel ick for a while if they are eating. But bacterial infections kill way too fast. Hopefully now I can do copper and get them all in the dt. Once they are there I'll feel so much better

I have a chestnut blenny (cirripectes castaneus) in QT right now. Blennies weren’t on the list above. I was hoping to use copper power. Do you foresee any issues?

I have not. I probably wouldn't risk it.

I have 3 lions 2 eels the two Wrasse a yellow Tang a panther grouper and a Marine betta.

Is there any way to treat them all in the same tank? I have already fw dipped them all and gave them a bath in reef rubby. They are in a qt tank together now. It was a fresh set up.

The lions and eels won't tolerate copper. The two wrasses may not tolerate Chloroquine. I don't see any way around NOT setting up two QTs for this, unless you wanna roll the dice on the wrasses + CP.

Yea that's what I was thinking. The only problem is the broomtail is not small. He is about 7.5 inches. What's the smallest you think I can get away with for him. Could I use a big rubermaRub tote?

Also how long will the dip and bath keep the symptoms at Bay for? Can I do another round? I really do not want to lose any of these fish.

Something like this ought to do the trick: https://www.target.com/p/sterilite-174-ultra-clear-storage-bin-clear-with-gray-lid-29gal/-/A-14757117

Not long, if the fish are being put right back into an infected environment. 48 hours (for velvet), 72 hours (for ich) if placed in a sterile QT after the dip + bath.

Ok thanks. I was just worried about tonight. I will get them set up tomorrow with all the right stuff. How fast do you think I can raise the copper for the to wrasse? Will copper be absorbed by the plastic of the tote?

Should I do another fw dip or bath before I start the CP and copper for the wrasse?

If using chelated copper, you can drop him in @ 1.0ppm and then take 2-3 days to reach 1.5ppm.
