Adding fish.

I have a 90 that had an ick outbreak two weeks ago, i have all the fish in Qt. I plan on leaving the 90 gallon empty for six more weeks. When i add the fish back into the main tank how many should i add at a time and how long should i wait to add the others. I have a ceylon puffer, 3 chromis, a clown fish, and a coral beauty.

I would suggest adding a few flakes of food once a week to help keep the nitrifying bacteria going in you main. It will turn into a small ammonia source that will feed it. I would add them back maybe a few a week. Make sure to add the most aggressive ones last.

Agreed, maybe flakes twice a week in that large of a tank. Make sure you keep a check on your parameters, you don't wnat to add too much flake.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
