If your going to add shrimp don't add medicine to the tank shrimp are very sensitive to medications. Pick up a qt tank and add a pice of LR from your cycled tank and some filter media from an established tank and treat in the qt.

At this point I'm not adding any livestock to this tank. My two Chromis seem okay, but one of my clowns is probably dead with the second on its way out.

For a small QT what do you use for filtration and water flow?

Filling Up My Tank

Are you using a hob filter for your main tank? If not a cheap power head is fine. The aqua clear hob filters are cheap but reliable aswell

Yes, my display tank is using a HOB Penguin or Emperor. I think it is a 350 or 400. I have two Hydro Evolution power heads. One is a 750/850 and one is a 1050/1150 gph.

I would take the filter from your main tank and put it on the qt that should allow you to put your fish in right away and start treating. Put all the fish in even if they look fine and treat for the ich. Check for ammonia and nitrite daily and do wc's as needed in the qt

What about treating the display tank as well?

Oh sorry so what I would do is leave the tank empty(of fish) for 8 weeks and I would turn the temp up to like 85. The increased temp won't hurt your bio filter

Do you have any recommendations for treatment products?

Saltwater ick isn't like freshwater. The statements made about temp raising and such don't do anything on the salty side of things. You will want a copper based mad to treat in your QT tank. This will be a long process and you will need to leave your display fallow for the 8 week life cycle to ensure there still isn't any living in your sandbed.
