If I use a plastic storage box, can I add these (along with plastic plants / cave) to make a quarantine tank:

I have an air stone which can be used with the sponge filter. Guessing I don’t need a light?

Or should I be treating the whole tank in case any of the others have it?

Anyone used Esha products? They have good reviews online.

Thanks for advice.

If the storage box is small enough for a 25w heater, then yes. :)
I don't think Esha is brilliant for internal problems.....unless the use of 2000 and Exit together is good?
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! :D

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Mobiles are way too complicated for me, although I do have one now. ;)

This is the esha product

Should I separate fish or treat whole tank?

I'd treat the tank, just in case.

Still awaiting meds, been feeding plenty of bloodworm/garlic in the meantime though.

In other news, I got my floating plants!

Hopefully this works:

Meds added to tank. Fingers crossed it helps my fish babies.

I also took the purigen out my filter to regenerate (thanks for the guide MartyH!)

Meds added yesterday, the instructions say to perform a 20% water change after 24 hours with carbon in the filter.

When using carbon to remove meds, how long should it be left in the filter for?

The poorly looking Ram has been hiding at the back and not moving much. I’m not optimistic to be honest.

Carbon shouldn't be needed with modern meds, they don't hang around like they used to. Just follow the instructions on the bottle.

Fingers crossed now. :)

Thank you for all of your help so far Plankton!

I only put the carbon in because the instructions told me to! :D

Second course of treatment due in a couple weeks.

The ram in question has been hiding at the back and not moving much.
