Ok so I have now lost the kole tang and the royal grama. Now one of my clowns is full of white spots! I am going to empty my hospital tank and refill with DT water. After that I am going to call my LFS for advice. I don't know where to turn, I guess I will lose all of my fish one by one. I have not found any good information as to how I need to set up my hospital tank. Every place I see says just fill it up and put the fish in. I am lost help please!

I would take dt water so you limit the stress on the fish. They will be stressed as it is so any way to reduce it is good IMO.

Might as well treat all at this point and let your dt sit empty

So take all of the fish out? How do I make the qt tank safe for the fish?

Tank water, hob filter, heater, maybe an air stone or spare power head, and some PVC pieces so they can hide. Do you have filter floss in your DT sump? If so- put a pice in the filter. Make sure you have a copper test and dose according to directions. Also make sure to read the instructions for the copper test well.

I have all of that. The filter floss that is in my tank is only about a week old don't know it that is enough time? When I asked you a few days ago the coppersafe instructions said to dose up to 1.0 and a book I was reading it said no more than .25. I guess I killed the fish but don't want to lose any more.

Play it safe then at .25. They will be in there for a little bit. Try cutting that filter floss in half so there's at least some bb in there and then let the old half stay in the sump until another week. Then add it to the qt as well
