I had to remove all my rock a couple of years ago to get all the fish out. I placed it in some BRUTE 20 gallon containers. Thought I had lost my bi-color blenny as it was nowhere to be found. When I started putting the rock back in the tank it jumped out of a rock crevice back into the Brute container. I too the opportunity to re-aquascape the tank.

I only had 10 fish (all under 3" at the time) and they made it through hypo in a 30 gallon tank.

Yes, everyone gets along well. No new additions, the hippos were the newest fish (along with the yellow tang) but that was over a month + ago.

As for the Groupers, I'm planning to move them out with the clown when they get a bit bigger.

The only problemis that now you Ich in yor main tank. The only way to remove it is to remove ALL fish for at least 30 days. The removed fish should all be treated with hyposalinity for the same period. That's the lifecycle of the parasite, and it can't live in hyposalinty, so in 30 days you know it's gone.

Why not just take my corals out and take the whole tank to hypo? Something like 1.09?

Not just the corals but inverts living in your LR will be affected also.
