You need to do hypo for the fish not your DT...the ich in DT will die after 8 weeks,,but your fish in the QT's still have it ..it will just keeping hosting them and multiplying ...Inverts, LR,sand ,,,anything wet ,,can "carry"ich into your system....anything wet should be QT'ed before it goes into your tank IMO,,and i have done it ever since my disaster 6 years ago...live and learn

Those anemone's may be ball anemone's ,,goolgle those and see if it looks like them...they are fine to have

Chances are your inverts don't have it ...but say you picked some up from your LFS ,,theres a chance ich could be hitching a ride ...It can also live in LR and sand beds and be introduced that way..It has many stages of life ...I have done tons of reading on this little nasty thing and everything i'm telling you has been proven .
What about those nems,,did you check out ball anemones ?

OK ...what fish have ich??Your DT does have it,,so any fish that was in there will have it...I'm confused on what fish you have now(do you only have the one angel now) ,,i thought you were setting up the 40 to transfer the fish in the 20 to it..

Every fish i had in my dt died before i could move them. The only fish i have is my bi color angel in my qt i planned on moving him to the 30 gl but im leak testing it right now and i have. HUGE test tommarow so i wont hve much time for fish today.. The anems are majano.. With me doing fowlr i read it wont be bad but once i start to think aboit corals it woukd be pointless since they will take over them.. If i told you how many fish died in the dt im pretty sure people would want me to quit the hobby :/

This is how a lot of us learn,,don't beat yourself up about it....The bi-color will be fine in the QT(20 long right) for 8 weeks ...Just keep an eye on him...Personally i would do hypo on him anyway ,,but you don't have to,,if he has ich it will show up soon enough..good luck ,,and if you really want those nems thats fine ,,but they spread like crazy ...If not toss some peppermints in there

And let me tell you i get a weird twitch knowing i gotta wait evn longer than i did for it to cycle.. :/.. BUT on a lighter note.. Pretty sure a snail came alive from my lr.. I only had turbo snails in there and this guy aint big as a penny yet

The wait will be worth it(As long as you QT from now on)...in a year from now it won't matter that you didn't have fish for 8 weeks....
