Any reason you're doing an additional dose of copper? Or are you just continuing a treatment schedule you have already been running?

Well when I completely changed the water I didn't clean either of the filters so that I didn't get rid of the beneficial bacteria so I wanted to put cupramine in just in case there was any ich living in the filter or something. I guess just to be safe.

So I switched from my 100(thought was a 120 til I saw someone selling a 100 gallon with the same dimensions as mine) gallon to my new 150 today. When I first started quarantining I had two cardinals two clowns and one other fish. Can't even remember. Well I messed up and put everything in quarantine too soon. Lost everything but the two clowns from ammonia. So two weeks later after the tank was good I bought a scopas tang just to have something to put in my tank besides two clowns after quarantining them. So he's been with nothing but two clowns for a very long time. Well when I switched over to the 150 I went ahead and put my kole tang, sailfin and hawkfish from quarantine in too because theyve been clear for two weeks. My scopas tang is so happy. He is in love with the sailfin. He immediately started following the sailfin around. They've been together since the second I put them in the tank. The kole has been hiding since I put him in there. I saw where he was hiding in the rocks for a little bit now I can't find him again. The hawkfish has been enjoying the Heck out of himself swimming back and forth and landing in rocks and swimming back and forth and landing in different rocks haha. Sorry so long just wanted to post how my fish were doing

I have a question for any of you still looking at this thread. Once I got the sailfin and the others out of quarantine I started getting a few more. I got a lemon peel angel and I've had him for about a month and half. Have seen no ich on him since I got him. A couple days later I got a barletts anthias. Also have not seen any ich on her since I've had her. A couple weeks later I got an ignitus anthias and also he has not shown any ich. A week after I got the ignitus anthias I started treatment with prazi pro. Did that for a week then started cupramine. Did cupramine for two weeks then my friend got me another ignitus anthias. I've had him in the tank for a week so he's only been treated for cupramine for a week. Yes I acclimated him directly to a cupramine filled tank it was risky but I drip acclimated and he's doing fine and eating and everything. He's been bringing out the other ignitus anthias. That one used to constantly hide now he doesn't. Anyways my question. Since none have shown any ich and the other fish have been treated with cupramine for three weeks even though this anthias has only been treated one week but he has no ich would you guys risk going ahead and moving the fish to the display or give it at least one more week?

I would wait. One more week should not hurt, but trying to save a week and something happening puts you back to square one again.

I've had my 240g fallow since mid-January and was almost going to put fish in at 10 weeks, but decided to give it just a little longer to be sure.

I'd leave it like todd said. And stop adding fish to the qt till the others have completed their treatment.

That is true. If you are adding new fish in with your previously QT'd fish, you are running the risk of exposing them to a fresh batch of something bad.

Yea I understand. A friend bought me the other anthias so had no choice. And I didn't start the treatment until I got the third fish and was ready to start the treatment so those three were on the same treatments. Should I do another dose of prazi for the third anthias added just to be safe or is cupramine enough?

I don't plan on adding another. I wasn't going to add another but my friend got me that one. I wanted to get a few and treat those few which is what I did. I started treatment when I had two anthias and the lemon peel angel and she got me that other anthias two weeks into my treatment. So go ahead and add prazi pro now and for the last week treat with prazi and cupramine or no? Since the last anthias added hasn't been treated with prazi yet
