Ich Quarentine Period

As a newbie to the saltwater hobby I have learned in a hurry the value of a Quarantine tank. I have had 3 Fish in quarantine for 4 wks and 2 days. I did not learn about Hyposalinity in time so I went with a copper treatment (Copper Safe).

My question is how much longer do they need to be in QT? They are doing great I havent seen spots for most of the QT process. They are feeding well.

My main display tank has been fishless for that time. A couple Shrimp and some snails have been living it up in the main tank.

1 Blue Ringed Angle
2 percula Clowns
Have been in QT

Leave the main fallow for another 2 weeks or so and you should be good to add them back.

Thank You,

I was hoping that I was done, but I surely dont want to do this again, so I will wait 2 more weeks.

Should I continue with the Copper Treatment in QT for that 2 weeks or start lowering the copper levels?

Thanks Again.

4 weeks is plenty of time for copper. You don't need to start lowering the level. You can just do water changes and remove the copper with carbon.
Watch for 2 weeks like Atari stated and you should be fine.
