Matthew Grob Posted March 30, 2021 Share Posted March 30, 2021 I have a clown pleco I'm planning on moving from his current 20 gallon to a 10 gallon for quarantine. There's 2 reasons why I'm moving him for quarantine. I plan on rescaping the 20 gallon aquarium completely in the next few months. And most importantly, the 20 gallon aquarium used to house a handful of guppies but sadly each guppy passed from an illness I couldn't identify nor treat. Over the course of my fighting battle with the guppy's mystery illness I had used (these treatments were not combined, used separately) Kanaplex, E.M. Erythromycin, and Fungus Cure. Nothing worked, one guppy passed at least once if not every 2 months. The clown pleco that lived with them never showed any signs of distress and continues to act normal. It's been at least 3-4 months since I lost the final guppy, since then the pleco has lived on it's own. I guess my question is when I move the clown pleco to his 10 gallon quarantine tank, what should I treat him with so I don't run the risk of reintroducing the disease again? I'll be sterilizing all of the salvageable materials from the 20 gallon, emptying it out for awhile in the meantime before I start it all over again.
