Hospital tank help

Hey guys so I need alittle info on setting up a hospital tank. I just bought a 10g with a small heater and thermometer and a small hob filter (ill remove the carbon) also got a small net and the copper. I have a sick tang with ich and I don't think I have time to let it cycle if needed. I'm planning on just filling it up with ro water and mixing in salt and then putting the tang in there. Is this ok? I have little time so I gotta get this up ASAP

you will need to monitor the ammonia and nitrite levels very closely you also need to get a copper test kit to check the copper levels because as the levels rise ( ammonia , nitrite) you'll need to do water changes and that will remove some of the copper so you will need to and more to keep the levels up.
