    Hi everyone,
    I recently purchased a blue tang (juvenile) she was in my display tank for a few days and i noticed white spots on her so my LFS said to put her in QT with a dose of copper which i have done.
    She was looking good yesterday and eating alot but today shes just sitting on the heater not moving with her mouth wide open.
    Not sure what i should do!? or if this is normal when they have had a copper dose?
    Also i stupidly took a tiny bit of water out (5-10mls) and soaked mysis shrimp in it to feed her...then i fed some to my display tank!!!!! and only just realised this morning that i did it...woudl that tiny amount of copper hurt my display tank (120litre) ???
    thats what happens when you only get 3 hours sleep :p
    all the fish and corals in my display tank seem fine but i'm just over paranoid that it may do something to them.

    thanks :)
