Did you test for copper levels when you added the cupramine?

Ahh I gotcha. Well, if both cupramine and prazi pro aren't working I would place my bet on an internal bacterial infection.

My only other thought would be that I cleaned the PVC pipes with goo gone but I rinsed them thoroughly, followed by a good 1-2 hour soak in hot water, and a soak overnight in salt water.

That is another possibility. Are you running carbon in the tank?

That much of a change is pretty insignificant for most fish and isn't something that you really need to worry about. It's the inverts that die from a drop like that.

So I guess I'm ok but he still doesn't look too good, I hope he doesn't pass.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
