You can use a smaller dose. I QT all my fish the same way some people do it different I guess it works for them so they do it that way this works for me since the first time I tried it.

Oh ok. Just always read under .50 wouldn't kill ich but flame angels I know can only handle like .15. Just for future reference bcuz I'd really like to have a flame angel but don't want to go thru all of this if I can't treat it for ich and actually get rid of the ich.

So say I wanted to just take all the rocks and sand and everything out of my 120 and just treat all the fish there.. is it true that the copper stays in the tank and you can never have corals in that tank again after that? So like I wouldn't be able to put my starfish or crabs or anything back in the tank?

I never tried that so I do not know. But from read its not a good idea. Don't think you want to take the chance of copper getting into you rock or sand.

I have missed some of this posting, but your reference to copper levels doesn't seem right. Remember, there is a huge difference in cupramine and pure copper. Chelated copper, or cupramine is less reactive and therefore less toxic, which is why you need higher levels. But it is more stable and doesn't bond or chelate so is easier to work with. hence the preference in most medication. Perhaps that is why it requires a higher copper level than you think your fish can survive. 0.5mg/l is a typical cupramine dose and should be well below the lethal dose for ANY fish.
