    so my Angel and tang have WS. I do not have a tank that i can setup for a QT.I do not have the space either. My idea now is to buy all my fish at once. Have the tank at hypo salinity to get rid of all the ws and once that is complete slowly increase the salinity and start stocking up on the corals.
    what would be the best salinity to get rid of WS?
    How long should i have the salinity at that value for?
    Any other advise?
    Once i buy all the fish i will do regular waterchanges( every 2 days if not daily) as well as dose stability.

    I know that this is not an ideal situation but i would rather have a bare tank now and healthy fish later on.
