That tank will probably not hold water. It was not designed for that purpose. Get a QT tank, a 10 gal tank doesn't cost much.

You may want to reconsider the copper and treat with
Hyposalinity

If its set up and holding water....go for it. Get them in there and start a treatment with Cupramine (if your LFS has it).
Leave the display void of fish for 6 weeks and you should be golden.
What type of filter do you have on the 40?

Millennium wetdry

My hippo Just died the strange thing is the yellow tang was looking out for the hippo, rubbing it with it's fins, protecting it with it's body, trying to wake him up for over an hour. Even now as I type the yellow tang is trying to wake him up My husbend who has naver been interested in any of my fish, now understands that they have personalites. We are shareing the sad moment together.
We want to move the hippo out of the QT but it is very hard to do. The yellow tang is still around the hippo and would not leave the site
My husbend wants me to move the fish out of the tank but right now I just can't do it maybe tomorry
this is so sad in my heart but I will make sure that I will have other hippo for my yellow tang

If it's holding water you should be ok. Start treating right away as Quarryshark said.

Get the dead fish out of QT tank. It will start to decompose causing an ammonia spike.

Agree, I know its tough, but its not good for the surviving fish.
