Quarantine New Fish With Copper?

I have a clown fish in a quarantine tank right now. He currently has no signs of any diseases but after battling Ich in the past I am paranoid and I would like as a preventative matter to dose QT with Copper. Will that hurt or kill the fish if it ends up being it had no diseases to begin with?

No, you should be fine. I believe the therapeutic dose for copper sulfate is 0.15mg/L, but double check that. Cupramine is a recommended product. Hypo is good for ich alone, but won't affect other diseases that are more rampant like copper will. Don't forget to redose accordingly after water changes.

Ok Thanks. I think I notice 1 white grain of salt looking thing on the white part of the clown. I don't want to misdiagnose like I did last time which did not end good. So I will do copper just to be safe since it won't hurt either way.
