Newby needs help setting up tank!

I currently have a 10g tank with live sand and live rock, inverts and fish. I have to treat both my fish for ich. ( I bought instant ocean lifeguard, by the way if anyone has reviews on it. )

I wanted to move everything into our empty 20 g. Should I put the fish in a bucket or temp tank while I clean everything out of the current dt, then make the current dt into the quarantine tank and then move all the inverts to the 20g to use as my new dt? Suggestions, advice appreciated

Well if you're wanting to use the 20 gallon, I'd move everything into a bucket or tub. Make that your quarantine tank for treating this bout of ich.

That way you can give the 10g a good scrubbing and store it away for if you need it again.

I just wouldn't put anything in the 20g until you're sure the ich is gone.
