I have a 10 gal
tank that I had some black swordtails and a few black skirt tetras in along with an electric blue lobster. The fish all came down with a bacterial infection which I think was transferred from my 75 gal
cichlid tank. I moved the tetras to the 10 gal
and the infection showed up a few days later in the cichlid tank. The cichlids were medicated and are all healthy now, but of course it reared its head again about 9 days later in the 10 gal
. Even with tedious water changes and continuously medicating, the swordtails and the tetras lost the battle. The blue lobster seems to have been unaffected by the whole ordeal. I want to completely break down the tank and clean it completely (with vinegar). My question is is there any treatment that I could do to the lobster to rid him from carrying any more of this potential infection so that I could put him back in the tank and start over? He's been surprisingly non aggressive with the swordtails so I would like to add some more in the tank. I just don't want to put them in there doomed to get sick. Any recommendations?
