I recently moved my fish from a 375 and 470 gallon tank to my 300 gallon stock tank. Ich has always been in my system (9 years), but I rarely lost a fish. Now I have an outbreak that has killed my Emperor, Orange shoulder tang, Klein Butterfly, and four or five other fish at least. I have 3-4 fish looking bad and another 10-15 fish looking ok.

I have about 400 pounds of liverock, lots of inverts that I've had for years as well, giant starfish, anemones, some corals and snails. Any suggestions for treating this tank?

IMO, I don't see any other way, than to catch them and let the tank go fallow for 72 days. I would recommend 90 days.

I might just scoop up the clown at the top and put her into hyposalinity, or since she is bad off, should I use copper?

In the DT or the QT? In the DT, no. In the QT, you could use Cooper, but I would not do both, hypo and cooper. I don't use cooper as too me it's to dangerous for the fish. If you have ich, TTM will be the best effective treatment.
