opinion please on treatment options

OK, today I am moving all my fish to qt for ich treatment. I treated back in Jan with cupramine for velvet and am hesitant to nuke them again. Is hypo a sure treatment? I would hate to start it and have the fish go south. It takes too long to raise the spg in order to start copper.
Or should I just use the copper again?
Opinions please.
Thanks
Kurt

I'd say depending on the intensity of the ich you might just want to use the copper again, since you've done that before and it was safe for your fish... but saltwater isn't my expertise- that's just my opinion!

IMO hypo is the way to go, if you have a refractometer. Just keep an eye on alk/ph as you remove SW and add fresh.

I've used it several times before and it has been successful

God I hate this . I have caught 5 of them so far, 5 to go. Its so stressful on them and I unfortunately need to use a net with the depth of my tank. I moved 80% of my rock to garbage cans and drained about 100 gallons and its still a b...ch. I hope this is the last time for my fish sake.

Finally caught them all...what a job. The Royal Gramma was the hardest, she kept hiding in the rock. I felt so bad. My Angel is (was) very trusting and the easiest to catch , she looked at me like "why are you doing this".
