how long to medicate a fish
 
so i got some buffered active copper to treat my fish with a parisite and forgot to ask how long to medicat. i have no desire to go back to the store as i would have to take my cusion with me and he is 3 so if you've delt with kids you know why i don't want to go back.
i was wondering if any one knows how long i should medicate this fish before it is healthy enough to go back into my main tank?

It probably says on the container how long to medicate. I'd say to medicate until the fish don't have parasites any more, but sometimes (depending on treatment) you need to medicate for a longer time. I once a guppy die from over dose because another fish still had the disease and he didn't.
