    Hi all,

    Eish, I've manged to get a nice case of white spot in my tank, sigh, my regal has about 4-5 decent spots on him. Bugger, next time I'll quarantine, promise.

    I'm having problems deciding what to do with the hospital tank aspect, I have two fibreglass boxes, 400x400x360high that I want to use. My fish have shown no aggression against each other and are all tiny. I have a regal tang, a pair of juvinile clowns, a cleaner wrasse and a flagtail that I just know is going to give me white spot while stressing out catching them.....

    Is it humane to put all these guys in a single hospital tank while treating them with hypo salinity, or should I split them up - and if so, which would you put together ?

    Thanks,

    Stressing Mark

    I'm planning a full 8-10 week for the white spot to disappear, don't want to take any chances on this....
