+1 most of those "reef safe" meds will not even do anything. Much more risk than they're worth.

Adding copper to a reef is a big NO NO
put the fish in a QT tank than treat
using copper in a reef can cause a lot of issues
1) copper will get exorbed into rocks and render it useless
2) you will no longer be able to keep inverts alive along with other micro oganisams and you won't be able to keep much coral if any
3) once copper is put in the reef it will always be there even if you do a total water
change as it gets exorbed in the silicone seals

Constant temperature swings are deadly. Stabilize the temperature, preferably under 82F. I will make no comment on the tang and tank size. I am kind of tired of wasting my breath. Good luck. Hope all works out.
