Medicating main tank

Hi all,

I have been having serious trouble catching some fish out of my main thank that I want to qt. From other discussions, there is a good chance I have some Green Chromies with Uronema. Since I can't catch them (my tank is 450g with 380 lbs. lr) I was thinking I will medicate my whole display tank. Besides my 7 Green Chromis I have one Yellow Tang.

Is there a med that I can put in my main tank that will not wipe out my lr but will take out something like Uronema? I have a feeling this is probably not doable.

Unfortunately no. Formalin or nitrofurazone are the best remedies. FW dips with Methylene blue have been reported to be hit and miss, personally I wouldn't bother. You can do the "wait and see" in hopes it may burn itself out (which I highly doubt) but your options are limited. Untreated it usually leads to death.
