How long has he been in the tank?
Did you just put him in today?

I know when I added my clown at the beginning of the week he looked pale (probably shipping stress and just being the on in a large tank! From a small bag stress)

I would say watch him and his behavior feed him a well varied diet.

You're not putting that into your display tank right?

Are you positive of the diagnosis? You will have issues dosing your main tank with copper since you have coral rock in the tank. It will also be toxic to any invertebrates in the tank.
Copper Power is dosed as per the label instructions to the exact volume of your tank (actual water volume, not it’s rated capacity). With a hanna meter or a good test kit, that works out to a 2 ppm dose.
