URGENT RESCUE! Plz help!

Fish in bad shape really beaten up.

I replied to craigslist ad Selling cleaner shrimp for 10$ cause he is moving.

I WAS HORRIFIED BY WHAT I SAW.

90g Running For 2 yrs. He sold his live rock 2 days ago.
Now had;
cleaner shrimp- looks ok. $10
coral beauty- beaten up bitten. $25
tomato clown - ok $15
yellow tang $40- NO FINS AND HALF TAIL. I got so angry that why he let things go this far and didn't do anything. He said he had pink purple color fish beating on them. Not sure what it was but he sold it to the guy who bought rock.

Than he tells me it's not that bad just missing fins. Otherwise fish are healthy. What!

I was so upset I bought everything and he wouldn't take less than 80$. All I had was 70$ on me so i give him that to rescue the fish.
Fish are now acclimating, shrimp in separate container drip 2drops/sec.

Is it safe to add them to my system or do quarantine?
I only have 20 gallon hospital tank. That i am setting up now.

Should I move them all there?

Plz help!!!!!!!

The tang won't survive, if it's really in that bad of shape, it's going to die soon. You won't be able to put all of those fish into quarantine, it's just not possible. I'm sorry that I can't help you much.

I had set up 20 gallon and moved them all in.
In the morning I went to friends and picked up 2 10 gallon tanks.
10g - clownfish
10g - corals beauty
20g- tang

Grats on being a good person and resuing those poor fish! It's unbelieveable how some people treat their animals. Just appalling.

I;m glad the tang is eating, just baby those guys and you might have a great shot at them all doing well.

Good luck, and thanks for doing what you did.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The tang looks a lot better than I imagined it to be, as long as everything is eating, it is healing. The other fish look fine. You could probably put them into the main in like 2 weeks. The tang will probably take longer, it's important to keep it stress free, the tang could easily get ich.

Thanks Carey and Needmorecowbell

I have them eating now but how can I be sure they are disease free? So I can add coral beauty to my tank.

I noticed white blotches on them almost thought velvet but they would be dead by now if it was.

Just going to do water change and add skimmer today. Since it going to be a while.

THE TANG- doesn't it resemble lateral line disease?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
Heera

Its probably ich. Don't add them to your tank if there are white spots. Since your quarantining you can dose copper, which will kill it fast. Don't let any of the water get into anything with coral, it will kill it along with the live rock. I don't think it is hlle, just a lot of fin nipping, you could make a thread on it to make sure though.

Congratulations on qting, you made your life soo much easier

Big white splotches could be stress spots . If you do think it is ick and decide to treat it hyposalinity would be much easier on the fish than copper.
