I just took my new hippo tang out of quarantine 3 weeks ago, where he did very well for 4 weeks after I purchased him. I had left the main tank fishless for 7 weeks after a bout of ich a couple of months ago. This morning, I see the dreaded white specks, and the tang is rubbing all over the sand and rocks.
Unfortunately, I have 4 tiny blue reef chromis in the quarantine for observation right now. They are (were, I'm afraid now) due to be released into the main tank next week. I also have two O. clowns in the main which will also need to go into QT.
I'd like to do the hypo treatment for all these fishes, but my QT is only ten gallons. Is that big enough to house these residents for the duration of treatment? I'll probably have to end up doing water changes daily
The tang is about 2 1/2 inches from nose to tip of tail, the clowns are 2 and 2 1/2 inches, and the new chromis are 1 inch each. Is this plan doable?
Oh, did my water changes yesterday, and parameters are the same for both tanks:
Thanks, one more time, for any advice.
