I use copper power. But there are many if you do use a copper based treatment no inverts can go in the tank and nothing from this tank ( fish excluded) can go in your dt

So it looks like my other clown is about to die. This leaves me with two Chromis and two snails.

I took my live rock out of the DT to put in big gray tub filled with SW. I put my snails in there too. I don't have my QT setup yet, so I had to leave remaining fish in DT until later today(Saturday).

You don't have to take the LR out

Yep, just leave the big tank alone and move the fish only to the qt. DO NOT add any live rock to the qt if you are going to treat with copper, it will make the rock unuseable in the future if you do. Just a large pvc pipe so the fish can hide in there and the filter and heater. All you need.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The treatment I bought said not safe for invertebrates or live rock. Says it will stain silicon too. Rethinking using this product.

All copper based products are like this. This is why we recommend only treating in a separate QT tank.

ive used copper power before in the presence of silicone tubing, it def stains it a blue color, although i dont remember it staining the actual silicone seals.

So I have my 20 gal QT put together. I filled it with new SW today. Temp is fine, but how long do I need to wait to put in my fish which need to be treated?

get the temp and sg as close as possible between QT and DT, then you should be good to go. if not, you can always acclimate them to the QT
