If protazin contains copper, your friend is right, as you wouldn't be able to keep marine crustaceans of any kind in the tank. Yes, you could switch out tanks, but it would take considerable time to clean out both the 26 and 75 as they would have to be pretty much sterilized before the change over.
More trouble than its worth, actually. Just buy another 75, use the 26 as a sump, and leave the Cichlids where they are.
