Help I need some advice

So I had three fish (yellowtail damsel, jewel damsel, purple dart fish) in my DT and I thought that my jewel had ich then it and the other damsel died before I could confirm (two weeks ago). My fire fish has never displayed any signs of ich at all but I know only one stage is visible. What should be my course of action before I add new fish?

You could QT and leave the display fallow for the 6-8 weeks for ich's life cycle to make sure it is ich free.

So just move the fire fish over to the qt tank and leave it for 6-8 weeks. Do I need to do anything with the firefish?

You could treat to be on the safe side and just never saw the cist life stage on it.

If in QT, you treat with copper based meds or hypo salinity.

Well which would be easier for someone who is still fairly new to the hobby? Hypo or copper?
