I've gotten a couple direct replies to my question, suggesting that
I remove the infected fish, and medicate them in a seperate tank.
I've got a spare 10g tank around, that I could use as a hospital tank.
The affected fish seem to be:
6 glow-lite tetras: I noticed a spot on one of them first, but now I
can't find any spots on them
4 Neon tetras : Probably the most infected. 2 or 3 have many spots.
All 4 have at least one spot.
2 Kissing Gourami : Noticable spots on the tail
Will moving these fish to a hospital tank, and treating only the
hospital tank clear the problem? Or will they just get re-infected
when I re-add them to the main tank? The fish remaining in the
main tank would be:
5 cories, 5 tiger barbs, 3 otos, 1 raphael cat, 1 large ramshorn snail,
3 mt snails, 2 amano shrimp.
And if it'll work, what do I need to do to make sure the water quality
stays acceptable in the hospital tank? Frequent water changes? Or
some chemical ammonia neutralizer? I obviously don't have time to
cycle the tank. I've got a cheap box filter with regular floss media.
I'll need to get a heater for this tank. Let me know if this is my best
bet, and I'll get it set up today.
