i think you may have answered your own question by saying it is only a temp fix. so i guess it depends on your definition of "works".

Be sure to test the copper levels daily. When needing water changes (and you will) be sure to dose the change water so the proper concentration (1.5-2.0 ppm) is being maintained at all times.

14 days from the time the correct concentration is reaching using 5ml/4 gal of water volume. Once the treatment is done, do a few good water changes and run carbon to remove the med. The fish must remained QT'd after that for an additional 3 weeks. This will allow for a sufficient fallow period in the main tank and observation time for the recently treated fish for secondary infection.

Cheers
Steve

They will drop off the fish, but if there are more of them in the tank then yes the fish will become infected again.. It also depends on how bad the fish is too. So yes it does work.
