I like the qt solution much better. If the bioload give you a problem, you could alway upgrade to a 20 gallon. They really don't cost very much and you already have the filter.

Putting the fish in the 10 gal and letting the main tank without a host

This is the best solution.

Now to weigh in on the ick problem, I used Ruby Reffs "kick ick" sucessfully 1 time, had an out break of ick in my 46 gal, treated the fish right in the tank, snails, crabs, pepermint shrimp, pods, ETC. Everything survived except the ick. Now other people have used it with out success, I guess the difference is I didn't follow directions 8O , Instead of dosing every other day, I dosed every day 8O . Seemed to work

You mentioned a spare 55 gallon. If that is not hosting other fish, why not use that as your QT for the 6 week QT period?

I also recommend reading Hyposalinity

Keep careful tabs on your pH as it tends to go low in hypo. I suggest 10% daily water changes to help keep the water parameters stable.

It works!

Well i guess here is my plan: Im going to buy a 20gal tank and use the 55gal wet/dry on it. Take all my rock and inverts out and put them into my 55gal tank. It will then be easier to catch the fish and ill be also able to add more sand to the main tank(HD sand goes on bottom and my live sand goes on top). I will then put all the rocks and inverts back into the main tank and let it sit for 6 weeks while the 20gal goes through hypo.

one side note, I don't know that it would be a nice idea to return ich infested fish to the fish store.
