I needed to QT ALL the fish then why not just treat in the display tank?
Copper will kill your inverts or possibly future inverts. Mosy/everything on your LR will perish also.

Same thing with hypo, except it is not a long term problem. If you treat with hypo, your LR might perish along with the inverts and this could cause you another cycle. All the die-off will produce lots of ammonia, then nitrites, both toxic to fish.

It would be impossible to catch all the fish without removing all of the LR.
You can build traps and get them out that way.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

For starters I repoved the infected Percula. He had a cotton like white spot on the leading edge of his dorsal fin and another on his side at the junction of his pectoral fin.

I put him in a temporary QT. I put a HOB on the QT tank with the sponge media from my display tank HOB. This should provide plenty of active bacteria. How slowly should I drop the SG and what would be the ideal temp? How long should the fish remain in this QT environment?

There is alot of info on this site for hypo. Go to the sick fish forum and look under treatments. Do you have a refractor? It isn't safe to do hypo without one from what I have read.
