    So, I am 5 weeks into a 6 week fishless session with my 180g DT. My sole survivor...my small/medium yellow tang...has been in my newly setup 30g QT with copper treatment during that period, and seems happy/healthy (although a bit skiddish at times, being a small tank with minimal hiding places)...
