As long as he cleans it and there is no sand or rock, he should be fine.

Ive read many times that it impregnates the silicone, almost every ich article that advocates copper treatments states use teh tank for nothing but... or similar verbage

I wouldn't do either. Feed food soaked in garlic an make sure ur fish don't get stressed. I had fish fight ich this way. They are more susceptible to it when Immune system is down. The ich is in the DT and u won't get it out. Moving ur fish around is gonna just make it worse IMHO

Yea that may be true but u can always buy another for like 25-50 and sell the other for the same price for someone else to use as QT. It's better then having over $175 worth of fish die

Ohh its well over 175. I spent that between the lion, butterfly and puffer alone. Idk what to do does ich always mean certain death? Because my fish seem to be extremely healthy (they've become little fatties)and I already feed them garlic infused pellets. Just got home from work and my engineer gov't is literally swimming around the tank, out in the open. Irk what's going on lol. He has never done this, not even once.
What's my odds of not losing any fish if I just hold steady and keep feeding? Because if I have better chances in treating them (either by copper or hypo) ill sacrifice the 55
