Qt question with livestock

Ok long story but my tank got ick... I was wondering if my 20 gal long could house all my fish or I I should get a second tank. I'm hoping they all fit in my one qt. I really don't have room for a second qt tank. My livestock list is,

5 inch yellow tang
4 inch porc puffer
3 inch hawaiian blue spot puffer
4 inch naso tang
4 chromis small
3 inch clown
Med 6 line

There all normally housed in my 125 dt

I hate to say it but you may need a 55g or so to get all those fish in it. Ot maybe 2 29g tanks? Thats alot of fish......what size is your main tank? I'd hate for you to have to buy a whole new BIG tank but with those fish you may have to.

Sorry, good luck though hope it turns out ok.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

There housed in a 125. I have a couple 10g laying around but I want to keep for sure no more then two qt tanks. Already a headache making sure the tanks stay healthy. I'm watching cl for a cheap 55 or larger but there's no good deals by me right now. Might have to go buy another 29

Should I move my skimmer from my dt to my qt while the fish are going through hypo? Then let it dry out real good and move back to my dt after treatment.

Don't risk spread of infection by moving the skimmer around like that.

Go to walmart and buy a 30 gallon tote,put the bigger fish in that and the others in the 20..
you can move the skimmer ,,hypo will kill whatever it has in it anyway
