Copper would likely kill it. 0.15ppm is the number you never want to get near with several angels. I'd go hypo, but make sure you have a refractometer, as hydrometers are not nearly as accurate. Odds are, if you do not have a filter already going with the DT, it will take a while to get BB. Some people keep a sponge in their tank/sump to pull out for QT. Use water changes and maybe go with a BB bottle product like Dr Tim's One &Only. That cycles a tank in days.

Also...if you have other fish, they are now potential hosts/carriers. Leaving the DT fallow for six weeks will allow the Ich to die off due to not having a host. Leaving fish in almost guarantees that the Ich will be there when you put the Angel back in.
