The nudi will likely starve in your tank. Takes a lot of care and special feeding needs so I understand. Besides with that copper having been used, I'd even be more concerned about a nudibranch. What about your snails and hermits? They doing OK?

Ray, that was my first concern. That he had wiped out his inverts with that copper. I have a feeling that he does not have copper and that it was an organic treatment. Well, I'm hoping anyway.

Just another comment... although it doesn't answer your original question!...

You mentioned the heat wave and high temps wiping out the ich. It didn't. Elevated temps won't kill saltwater ich. It may work with freshwater, but that's different. The ich is still there - especially if you just treated with a "reef safe" medication.

When i 1st started i gat infected with ick also and i used copper it killed all the ick but it also killed a lot of my bacteria, snails, starfish so i went to the pet store bout the stuff you can put in the water to start out the tank its like bacteria ina bottle stuff and i also added carbon to my setup and POLYFilter stuffs great to get copper out of the water i dnt remeber the brands the polyfilter changed color when it took stuff out of the water for example when the pad would filter out copper the pad turned bluish green good stuff it worked for me
