First online order

Hello i was looking at doing my first online order. I was looking at a blue hippo and then either a leopard wrasse or flame angel. I was wonder if itís possible to put cooper in my qt tank or adjust them first then slowly add cooper?

Youíll need sand in a qt if you are getting a leopard. Theyíre not easy fish to keep and usually come with internal parasites. You can treat the qt with copper but like I said qt for the leopard is different than the tang or angel. Honestly with a qt itís best to just keep the fish in there for a little while and monitor before treating as treating can do more harm than good if thereís nothing wrong with the fish.

Isolate the hippo from everything else and assume it's ich until you know otherwise. Blue hippos are notorious for problems IMO. Tangs have messed up every tank I've ever had. Smh.

I say start treatment immediately because it won't hurt. Monitor feeding. Fish will eat normally in the beginning of an outbreak.

I hope your other fish haven't been infected.
