I’m about to execute such a big job which I do not have time for but will have to
Long story short I have ich in my DT and I’m going to remove half the way from DT to the other tank, place all the rocks and coral into the little tank, catch all the fish place them in a bucket. Put the coral and rocks back into the DT place the fish into the little tank treat with cupramine for 2 weeks in the little tank. Leave the DT fallow empty for 2/3 months.
In the last 2 weeks of being fallow I will do the TAnk transfer method on the fish just incase the copper didn’t work. Then put them back in the DT and live HAPPILY EVER AFTER PLEASE

I got you on the “itch” part but no time. I always wanted a second tank and I was lucky enough to picked one up from a member here. Then I got another little nano free from a friend. Now I got three! The second tank is running with only rocks and sand with all livestock’s are being so expensive now.

sometimes feels exhausted even though I got 3 days off mostly every week lol.

I hear you man. Seems like sometimes we just can’t catch a break. I spent months to set up my 73g and now my 120 is going down hill, corals are dying and things just don’t go the way I wanted. It’s kind of frustrating sometimes in this hobby.

Changed my mind I’m going to do the tank transfer method in small buckets for a 1/2 fish at a time and then place them in two seperate 80L tubs I have.
Not willing to risk copper not working or harming the fish.
Would this work?
 

Is there anything that grosses you out about saltwater aquariums?
