If you are sure it is Amyloodinium
, copper should be very effective. The loss of appetite is normal especially when using copper meds. What type/brand of copper are you using and are you monitoring the levels daily?
What are the exact symptoms?
As a rule, FW
dips will also help with velvet and should fall from the fish in under two minutes. Just be very very sure the ph
and temp of the FW
match the current environment. If the fish becomes overly stressed, place it back in the QT

You were misinformed. All fish are at risk of catching it once an infected fish has entered the system and all fish should be treated accordingly. The main display should be left fallow for 4-6 weeks to allow the parasite to die off.
