I would not transfer the water, might have eggs floating in it. Wouldn't want to risk it.

So I was thinking of separating the Chromis. One of them is picking on the other pretty hard. the docile one will work well in the other tank.

Like the Highlander said, There can be only One. Unless kept in very large systems, Chromis will kill each other, kinda like the Damsels do.

Return of the Ich

So my Neon Goby is in quarantine with two clownfish and chromis. The neon goby is covered in Ich. It looks really bad. Ive been doing the guarantine tank with Ich-X for the last 2 days, and now.... My Gramma in my 29g tank just showed up this morning with white spots... >.<

Well, not for nothing, but if your running a QT, I'd run it for Hyposalinity. This works, period, end of story. There is no guessing with this treatment. The parasite can't survive in the sg pressure difference.

It's running in Hyposalinity. I made sure of it

Ah, very good. No reason to medicate then. If your at 1.009, it will take care of the ICH problem.
Oh, also forgot, if you have a very bad case on one of the fish, yoiu can FW dip them for a couple of mins, this too will kill the Parasite. Then put em into Hypo.

Snails come and go all the time. Thats a constant up keep. I've only got a few that have lived for a few years.
