Argg! Treating for ich, Bangaii with eggs...
I am removing all of my fish from my main 60 gallon tank and treating them in a 25 gallon tank for ich. These fish include 3 green chromis, a flame angel, a yellowtailed damsel (which I might not put back in the end), and a pregnant pair of bangaii cardinals. I have already lost a royal gramma and a blue atlantic tang to this parasite in the last week. Now, I don't want interrupt the male bangaii and his mouth full of eggs but I have to treat the other fish. Here is my plan, I want to know if this sounds like it will work. I want to move the female bangaii to the quarantine tank with the other fish and treat her with them, but move the male into a 10 gallon by himself. Then allow him to hatch the eggs and spit them out before moving him to the quariantine treating him also which should be around 13 days from now. Can the pair be seperated while he is carrying eggs? I know not to net him because he will spit the eggs out. Is that too long to wait before treating him? Can he be treated while carrying eggs? I haven't seen ich on either of the bangaiis but I wan't to treat them anyway. I feel like i shouldn't leave him in the main tank because the ich will attack him when the other fish are gone. Think this will work?
