Now you have all the 75G parameters matching except the ammonia which is worse in the 10G. Are you sure the ich in the 75G is cured? Usually we wait 3 weeks.

The fish remaining show no symptoms and the fish that died only one had it completely all over. I'm thinking I will leave them in the 10g. When I get home today I'm going to do another large change on the 75 and add my UV sterilizer to let it run a couple days before reintroducing the fish.

If you are leaving them in the 10G I would get the ammonia down below 1ppm. Make sure they have a filter and heater in the 10G.

Got home to the jewel having the noticeable ich on her body/fins. Got my old filter out and cleaned and I have had heaters in it so its good in that aspect. Sigh.. Treating a 10g is way easier than a 75g at least! Hopefully this clears it.

Well, unfortunately all but the catfish have passed on. Thank you for all of your helpful advice!

Hi

Please watch the youtube on how to use the API test kit correctly. Also please be aware that the API kit cant tell the difference between unbound Ammonia and bound Ammonia ( ammonium)
