You could put the star and the hermits in the 5 gallon for the hypo. Do you have any live rock or live sand?

I do have LS but no LR yet just 60-80lbs of base rock.
I was looking at buying LR this weekend but wouldnt add it untill after it was cured.
but will probably hold off until i treat the Ich. I also have a 10 gallon tank that i coiuld use for qt but has no filter, but the clown is the only fish with spots so i figured on treating him in the mini 5 gal. whats the chances that the others develop ich if i treat tonight.
thanks for your help (newbie here)

Actually, good thing you didn't get the rock yet, this will work....OK..
Set up the 10 gallon and move the inverts to it. You can then treat the fish in the mains with the hyposalinity treatment.
I gave you a link in an earlier post that explains the procedure, refer to that for specifics.
One piece of equipment you will need to get is a refractometer. The swing arm hydrometers are too inaccurate to use for this. Several of the site sponsor sell them.
Maybe you could start another thread and we can talk you through this. Where in Ohio?

You should be set. Once you have the refractometer, you can start lowering the SPG , over the course of 2-3 days until you get to .009 spg. I treated my fish at this level for 4 weeks with good results. You can then observe them for 2 weeks to make sure they are clean. Watch the PH closely, the changes in the SPG may do funky things to the PH, so you may have to buffer.
after the tretment is finished, remember to bring up the SPG very slowly, like .001 per day. Bringing up to fast can hurt your fish.
Call your LFS first, I couldn't find a refractometer around here, I had to order it online.
Here is the one I ordered, it works great
