with just filter floss and a extra heater I have, but how long do i have to wait to move the fish? Would like to instantly. What decor should I use? Should it bare bottom? Should I run a light?
Thanks for all your help, hope I can fix this problem promptly.
Is a QT tank even my best option?
Ouch ... that sucks. With FW
you generally don't QT an ich outbreak ... but with SW
not sure the same rules apply as in FW
where you treat the whole tank.
For future reference, save the 20gal tall and maybe do a rubbermaid bin as a QT. No need for decor as mentioned, a heater should do with medical QT's, There should be more than enough PWC
's to keep any ammonia from building up so no need to fret as much about providing a filter initially.
Hope they all get cured .. good luck!
