Hospital Tank Question
I have looked through some other threads but did not find an answer to my question. So hopefully someone could provide me with a little guidance.
I noticed yesterday that two of my platies had signs of ich. So I quickly set up a 3 gal hospital tank to separate them form the rest of my fish. I am slowly increasing the water temp (Currently 81 degrees) and added some aquarium salt (1/2 Tablespoon). After some advice from my local fish store, I added Copper power green to the hospital tank (no treatment in the main tank).
However, this is not my main issue, the Ich seems to be getting better. During their short stay in the hospital tank one of them decided to give birth. Now I have a tank with two sick fish (But getting better) and new fry.
So, the long and the short of it is, should I leave them all in the tank together? I am a little concerned about the Copper green and the fry.
Thank you for any advice you can offer!
