Hippo Tang with Ich

Hello all,
I have a hippo tang with a slight case of ich in a 10 gallon QT tank. I have treated the water with Copper safe. My question is how long do I leave the tang in the QT with the copper? He does not look very happy as of now...but it has to be done.
thanks
Travis

Three weeks minimum. 4-5 weeks is even better.

Except in very advanced stages, it has been very successful for me.
