New yellow tang in qt

I have a yellow tang that has been in qt for three weeks alone. My problem is that he is so skittish that I can't get a good look at him to see if there is any ick or anything. From the few quick looks I get he is clear. He isn't scratching or anything but then again he stays hid all the time. Should I go ahead and treat him with copper? I don't have a refractor

Tangs do not react well with copper. But do not treat any fish with copper and your not sure if he has ick. You need to be absolutely sure. Being skittish could be anywhere from Current in the tank to bad parameters with your water. Post them if you can.
