Transferring fish to main right after Cupramine treatment

I purchased a yellow tang and a flame angel about 5 weeks ago.
I placed them both in a 10 gallon quarantine tank and 2 weeks after I got them I noticed the tang had ich, so I decided to treat with Cupramine. Tomorrow will be the 21st day of treatment which means I can start removing the Cupramine, here's the question.

Can I do a 5 gallon water change tomorrow morning and then in the afternoon transfer the fish to the main tank after a short acclimation.
The salinity is exactly the same and i'll match the ph, mainly through acclimation, but if it's far off, I'll adjust the ph prior to transferring them.

I know the main concern is the fish will have copper on them, but would it affect my 90 gallon tank?

They should be just fine. If you are that concerned about some copper on the fish...do a freshwater dip...but it really should be a null issue.
