Well it's finally time....my patience has paid off and I'm finally setting up my 55G in my newly remodeled basement. It was a craiglist find, fixed up the tank, painted the background, and re-painted the hood and stand!!!
My question is...I posted a week or so ago about my sick molly in my tank, it has 'black spot' disease. I think it's a form of ich, but I could be wrong. I've been treating my tank for about 2 weeks now with a product reccomended to me at my LFS. Luckily, the Molly is getting better, swimming around some more, being more active.
I had planned on setting up the 55G, getting it up to temp and throwing on the 20G filter and moving the fish over, until the new 55G filter was established and then ditching the 20G for another 55G filter.
Is this still possible even though my fish is sick? Does the black spot disease on my molly effect the filter media in my current 20G tank? Should I not put that filter on the new 55G? I can always just cycle the 55G, but if i can avoid that, I'd love to.....Help!! haha
Thanks in advance for your help everyone! I'm so excited for this tank
