True Unicorn, and from my previous experiences, when you take measures freaking out like pulling a stressed fish out and taking him to a hospital tank with copper, at most cases he will get even more stressed, wont eat and maybe only get worse from there...I would observe the fish for maybe a week and see how it reacts...If you notice a disease "bloom", which could have been caused by something else in the water/tank, by all means separate the fish and treat it. But if your tank water parameters check fine, and you observe that everything should be ok(pumps, tankmates) then most likely is indeed a stress/immune downfall that could be overcome without medication/moving the fish or anything else.
At a last thought, make sure you keep the fish eating at the time they show some ich that you think could be stress related.. I feed mine live foods at that time, since the fish wont resist them...and that should give them what it takes for their system to rebound the stress...
