hmm. You have to be very cautious. Not sure which copper treatment you have but I'd pull him, put him in QT and begin treatment with SeaChems Cupramine, cupramine is wide range and effectively eradicates Oodinium, Cryptocaryon, Amyloodinium, Ichthyophthirius, and other Ectoparasites. Or Mardel's Quick Cure.

I think its Ich if its spots, not mucus. Hyposalinity will work for Brook or Ich (copper is not the only cure for Ich). I would QT them right away and I would go hypo. The dip will help a little, but will not cure. Leave the DT fallow for eight weeks while treating too. If any fish are in there, it has a host and it will live on.

Just went back and read some older threads and both Ich and brook were mentioned with your tank. What ever happened with those situations? Sometimes fish can just tough it out and overcome things like Ich. If it keeps coming back, I would do something to eradicate it in the DT or it' s just going to be an ongoing problem.

Corals and inverts can stay in the DT. They do not host.

If you have a lot of fish, I would consider buying a larger QT. You could also consider moving the corals and inverts to another tank and hypo the DT. Not sure how much you have or how tough that would be though. Maybe there is someone in your area that would loan you a tank for QT?
