Can you move all inverts to another tank? If you could then (providing that all of your fish are hypo compatible) you could run hypo on your main? You'd have to provide a fishlist or do a search to find out more about the compatibility between hypo and your fish. You may also want to move your LR for the time being.

How's the fish doing today?

Good luck.

What species of starfish and what other inverts do you have?
You will also need to house the LR somehow. A large rubbermaid tote with SW, a powerhead & heater would do.

Cheers
Steve
