i wouldn't use a sterilizer personally, it kills anything that passes through it, good and bad

Did you ever read the articles Melosu58 posts? They are done by Steven Pro about ick and QT, pretty good articles. I lost most of my tank to ick, and saved 2 clowns by doing hypo (I just ordered cupramine to run prophalacticaly in my QT as well as prazipro). If you treat just two, and put them back in the rest will still have it and it will be a battle until well, unfortunately your fish die.

Also, I think you told someone that kickich or something like that worked, I hope you go back and let them know it did not work (so they can read those articles before the next outbreak in two+ weeks). Good luck with the QT, you have a lot of nice fish and I hope they all get better soon!!! Also if you are using cupramine there are only 3 test kits that work properly with it, seachem has two and salifert is the other. Can't wait to see the progress on the tank.
