Don't use copper, it's for parasites. What's your water quality like? You are pretty well overstocked with some big fish.

Actually no, it's not, it's properly stocked and most of the fish are rather small, the water quality is perfect, the fish can get it from shipping stress as well

I totally disagree. It's far from stocked properly.
dogface puffer - adult size 13"
Blue tang - assuming it's a hippo tang, adult size 12"
Blonde naso - adult size 18"
Red sea sailfin tang - adult size 16"
Emperor angel - adult size 15"

What is your definition of "perfect" water quality?
What brand test kits do you use and what are your water parameters?

Well considering I will be upgrading to a bigger tank, this is a great size for now,
Ammonia-0
Nitrate-0
Nitrite-0
Ph-8.2
Salinity-1.021
And I use an API saltwater test kit. I'd say that's pretty good water quality?

Why are you keping your salinity so low? Natural seawater is 1.026 and there is no good reason to keep it at anything but natural levels. Long term exposure to lower than natural salinity levels lead to kidney failures and early death.
