Ich treatment without QT

My gramma has ich, keeps trying to scratch and what not. Can I use 3 gallon bucket with heater and water from tank?
What more would be needed?
Now if I dump a quart a day from quarantine bucket and replace from DT will that keep oxygen up?
Please help I got blue spotted gobie that is healthy

Do you have an airstone? That would be the best for oxygenation in a bucket.

By putting him in a bucket your doing absolutely nothing. The ick will live for 8 weeks in your main tank so unless you remove all the fish and treat them and leave the tank fish less for 8 weeks your not doing anything.

After doing a little digging realized that if I was using water from DT I would be reintroducing ich. Lol wow nobody caught that 8)
That would have been such a nuisance

If you use copper, the iCh would die, even from display tank water. I am dealing with it now.

I didn't know that! So when you QT a fish...you have to use whole new water?...that makes things so much more complicated

No, you don't have to use all new water.
