Lawnmower Blenny in QT

Lawnmower blenny in QT starting today. The last fish I QT'd I used Mardel Coppersafe just as a precaution.

Is this OK, even needed with the Blenny. I think I read somewhere not to use Copper with scale-less fish?

BTW it is Chelated Copper Sulfate.

Don't use it unless you see a problem. If he goes 3-4 weeks with no signs of a parasite (spots or coating on skin), he is good to go into the display.

Also, if concerned about parasites, use hypo with this fish. I put mine through a hypo treatment with no problems.
I would not use copper on a scaleless fish.

hypo treatment
Hypo is low salinity, right?

Is there a procedure listed somewhere, a post of yours perhaps?
