I put the clowns and tang in a 10g last night using a canaster filter from the main tank for filtration. The copper level set somewhere between 1.5 and 2. The test kit measures up to 4. The wrasse and betta are still in the display tank. They do not appear to be showing signs of infection yet. I will probably finish treating the clowns and tang, then move them to another tank, then treat the wrasse and betta. How long should the main display tank remain void of fish before it is safe to restock?

8 weeks. Wow, thats longer than I thought. Ok, last question, how long do I need to keep the fish in the copper treated QT tank?

The fish need to remain in the copper at the correct concentration for 2 full weeks. After that you can remove the copper but the fish cannot go back into the main until at least 8 weeks past the last fish being removed.

Don't wait 2 weeks to remove the the remaining fish either. Velvet will kill quite quickly as the lifecycle advances and the dinospore density increases. Each cyst will release 256 dinospores.

Cheers
Steve

OK, thank you very much for all your help. The clowns and tang all look MUCH better since i put them in the QT. I will go get another QT this weekend for the wrasse and betta. Thanks again for all your help! I really thought I was going to lose all my fish.
