Ya it only took 3 days a 55 gallon and a 20 gallon. My wife wants to kill me, all she can hear is water everywhere!
But I'm gonna keep these corals and inverts away for minimum 10 weeks!

Did you take all the sand out? I hope so because the copper tretment will bind to that sand. If you didn't you will need to remove and replace all the sand before adding back corals and inverts.

Oh really? I was thinking anything that could affect the rock could affect the sand also. I looked on their website and say they do address this question. Here is what it says.

Our Cupramine is the only copper based remedy of it's kind on the market as this technology is very unique to our company. This copper based remedy is complexed to an organic (amine), hence the name Cupramine. This complex is very stable in water, meaning it is the least likely of all the copper remedies to "stick" to a gravel bed or live rock.

It says it is the least likely to stick, but it does not say it won't. I dont want to cause you anymore trouble but I would hate for you to lose inverts and coral.

Well I made up my mind I'm gonna need a bigger tank for when I'm done treating them and letting the LR sit with no host for 10 weeks, just to be on the safe side!!!
I'm looking at a 250 gallon. Should that be enough room for my fish, they are all pretty much babies!!! The biggest is Vlamingi Naso, maybe 5"???
Ooo And i tajnik that i lost a mandrin.

The Vlamingii Tang will not be the big one for long. They do get big though. Sweetlips get over 2.5' long and require a 500g minimum. If you still have most of those fish, I would shoot for a 300g and consider losing the Sweetlips at some point. The Vlamingii might be okay, but its pushing it for him.
