Thanks Todd and yes I totally agree, just QT all fish to prevent sickness and disease.

Il keep you all updated on my progress.

One little treat I can buy myself to make me feel better is possibly a couple of new corals once everything settles down as they won't be exposed to the copper treatment. But hold it I should QT them too!

I'm not as good with reef advice, as its been many, many years since I've had one, but my understanding is that corals and inverts do not carry stuff like this. It could be in the water that they come with though.

coral dipping is easy to do and cheap. By a small bottle, a quick dip in a container with some CoralRx and poof, yer dun. Throw the dip out and add the coral.

I think you can get carried away sometimes but as a precaution a coral dip would be good. I recently lost the most stunning green hammer coral to brown jelly and was nothing I could have done about it as I didn't catch it in time. Lesson learnt again.... Dippy dippy!

On the fish side of things I desperately need to go out in the morning and grab some PVC piping as the fish look quite stressed with no where to retreat!

corals and inverts can bring ich into the tank, ich can not host on corals or inverts but when they drop off the fish they can attach to them during the reproduction cycle

Yes I think we know this is a possibility.

Coral dips will sort this out. Wait didn't we just say that?
