QT the fish and treat them for ich. you can treat the QT tank with copper or hypo salinity but that will only help the fish, the ich parasite will still be in yourr main system.

Marine Ich

cleaner shrimp can also help control it or eliminate it but i wouldn't count on it

if you ever need to QT them, you can always use a rubbermaid container to keep them in. its more just to keep them in a safe spot so you can treat them rather then a place for viewing

Qt is a quarantine tank. A small and very bare tank so that you can treat sick fish and a place to put your fish when you first get them for a few weeks to make sure they aren't sick.

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

You can just go to walmart and buy a 10g tank for like $12 and add a heater and a small filter. thats about all you need for a qt. No gravel or rock, but you can put in a piece of white pvc pipe for him to hide in
