General rule of thumb for me is not to add ANYTHING to my DT until I know that I've erradicated whatever caused the problem for the sick fish...to each their own, and I'm likely overcautious, but that's how I run my ship

Good luck - I've had mixed results fighting off ich (mostly in freshwater environments).

Well if there's no filter or heater on the QT then there's no sence putting him in now. Put the biowheel on your DT now if its not already on it. Get your heater tomorrow and see where he's at.

Well since you'll be treating the QT it doesn't really matter which water you use. You do however want to put the biowheel on the DT asap. If at all possible move some LR or even rubble into the QT also so it doesnt cycle.

Once you've treated the ich in he QT, DO NOT put the water back in the DT. Throw it out. Your DT has already cycled, why would it cycle again?

Ok, sorry I wasn't understanding you. I thought you had a biowheel just for the QT. If you're buying a filter tomorrow. Put the new one on your DT and the one that's on your DT on the QT. Your LR in the DT will keep everything in check and the biowheel going on the QT will have established bacteria. Crisis averted lol.
