I think he is finally clear! Of course he doesn't stop moving long enough to get a really good look but I can't see any spots on his tail anymore. I had been noticing less and less spots and now I don't see any. Going to leave the copper for a few more days and then do a water change and watch for a week to see if it comes back. About time!

Well I left the copper in the tank and I kept testing it and it was still at the right level. I get up this morning and turn on the lights and now he's got a few more spots on his tail again. I was thinking about completely changing the water and washing the pvc and stuff with hot water and then refilling and maybe trying coppersafe? I'll leave the filters alone that way there's still bacteria in the tank. I know freshwater ich is different but we used coppersafe on my dads freshwater fish and their ich was gone in a week and hasn't come back since. So I was thinking of trying coppersafe. Would it be ok to use a different medicine or should I stick with cupramine

I'm also going to get a new copper test kit. Maybe mine isn't ready right. I've been hearing about salifert kits. What is the best medicine to use with that one?

Ok I did the complete water change yesterday and put half dose of cupramine in it. I decided to keep using cupramine. Well today the tang has no ich. Should I go ahead and add the other half dose of cupramine or just leave it?

My sailfin tang is still clear. How much longer should I wait before putting the fish into my DT?

I would give it a couple weeks and observe how it does. Has it been eating more lately?

He's always eaten like a pig. Even when he was covered in ich. But usually he's really shy and hides all the time and only comes out to eat when I'm around but he has actually been out every time and actually comes to the glass and he doesn't dart around anymore and he breaths normally.

Looks like you're making progress. If you're done with the regular cupramine treatment, I would definitely wait a few weeks and see how things go. If things are fine, I would add him to the DT then.

That's so long to wait! Haha. I went ahead and put more cupramine in the tank after I changed the water. I was planning on leaving it for a week which would be until Sunday and then doing a water change and leaving him another week. That wouldn't be enough?
