Such little copper is in the fish that it doesnt really matter, ive treated many fish with copper in QT and put them in my reefs with 0 problems.

I'm sure you didn't, but it was a crossing thought. The aquarium I have now is pretty new, but I'm not new to the hobby. Hope you find out the culprit soon!

Maybe get 3 more chromis and only drip for 20 minutes. See how that goes? Or maybe 1 as a test.

If I get one today, and two later, would they kill each other?

Chromis usually always drop off, some say that they kill each other after time, until theres 1 left. But no, they wont kill each other. IMO i would get 3 so that the 1 doesnt feel lonely.

I got one today and it's currently acclimating. If this one survives, I am getting two later on my water was tested, and nitrites, ammonia, and nitrates is 0. Ph is 8.0 and salinity is 1.023
