Personally I think 84-86Â° for any marine animal is too warm unless dealing with a region specific species that can tollerate it. In an FO

or reef and there could be additional concequences.
When you consider the time it takes for treatment: Cupramine 2 wks, ionic copper 3 wks and hyposalinity 4 wks + the watch and wait time
after treatment (2 wks) to be sure ther is no re-occurance or secondary infection, why bother? The parasite would not have a host to sustain it in a fallow tank and it would die anyway.
