Potters Angel Ich help please

I recently bought a potters angel. I made a stupid mistake of not quarantining him. I've been waiting for my LFS to get one forever and I was leaving out of town the next day and they wouldn't hold it for me. Looked fine at the store. I haven't added new fish in months so I didn't have my quarantine tank up and running so I just added him. Ugh ya lame excuses I know. Definitely paying the price. He has been in my tank for 3 days. I just got home today and it is covered in white spots. Probably the most depressing moment ever.

He is super active though which I'm hoping is a good sign. He didn't eat any food I added but has been grazing on the rocks all day. He along with a few of my other fish have been occasionally flashing so I'm assuming everyone has got it now.

I've spent the last few hours reading about it and I know I have to quarantine everyone which is going to be a nightmare but unavoidable.

My question is how big does the quarantine tank need to be? And what needs to be in it? What type of filter do I use?

Current stock: 72 gallon

Did you see him eat in the store before you got him? Potters are notorious for not eating any prepared foods in captivity. Unless he's eating I fear e won't last long in a qt setup. I'd want a 20g qt for him and keep it simple with a hob filter and PVC to hide in. Then treat with hypo. But like I said if he's not eating it will be tough
