Ick!

I just bought a six line wrasse from my LFS and it is showing signs of hawing ich, little white spots. i have invertebrates in my tank so i was wondering what is the best medicine for Ick that doesn't have copper in it.

Really doesn't exist. If you don't have a QT tank for him, you need to go get one. If you can't afford one right now, I would take the fish back before he really infects your tank.

would a 5 gallon be fine or do i need more volume in the hospital tank to keep parameters more stable for the sick fish?

make sure you cover the QT tank with eggcrate or mesh so it does not jump out.

if the fish looks healthy and it is eating leave it where it at the more you move it the worse it will get if you do not have a cleaner shrimp know is a good time to invest in one they will help alot but before you buy another fish get a qt tank i help run a salt water fish store and have done this for about 7 years thats what we do
