Yup, she has ich. can see it in the picture. All the fish in the tank will need to be treated in qt. What size qt tank do your have and how many fish?
As for copper level, what brand of copper? What do the directions say? Do you have a copper level test kit?
You can get that ammonia down with water changes.

do not repeat dosage.

These guys need to be treated in qt and the main tank empty of fish for 6 weeks to allow the parasite to die off. The inverts and rock can remain, they are not hosts. Even if the fish doesn't show it still needs treated. If there is a fish host in the main system, the parasite will survive.
Never heard of that copper, is there a testing kit that goes with it?

My fish are OK, my mistake was not keeping them out long enough last time.
The copper may be OK, but how do you measure the level? Too much copper can kill the fish and not enough copper will not cure them.
Beat the high ammonia with partial water changes.
