No, we did not QT them. My mother in law put them straight into the tank. The pleco was doing wonderful before the new additions. She said the male ram had something on him, and I asked her why she would get them if she knew they were sick and she said they "looked okay despite the stuff on one of them." The pleco just died.
The tank is a 10g and I test 1-2x a week for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. I also test for pH. The last test was done last night. I did not test for nitrate because I ran out of time.
Yes, I am well aware the fish should not be in the tank while it is cycling and yes I know a 10g is too small for a pleco. Now I just need to know what he had so I can treat the tank for the last remaining ram so she doesn't die too.
