    Depends on the copper you using ....

    You should treat for minimum 28 days, I treated my Naso for 28 days, after day 10 he was much better no WS but taking from the learnings of @Nemos Janitor I went and treated him for the full 28 days to make sure any free swimming or eggs in the tank were taken care of.

    I am assuming you treating for WS?
