I have a few tetras that have mouth fungus and I have been treating my entire 29 gallon for almost 2 weeks now with no real improvement in the tetras. So I would like to set up a hospital tank for all 5 of my tetras to treat to see if a smaller tank would help treat them better. I have a 2.5 gallon and a 10 gallon tank that I can use. Which do you think would be better? I have an extra 10 gallon filter to use in it hut no gravel or plants for it. are either of those needed in a hospital tank as well?
ps. I know tetras should be in groups of 6 and I had 6 but one died not long after being moved into the tank, not sure why

What treatment are you using? Id go with 10 gal. You don't need gravel or plants, but plants will provide needed shade/shelter or use plastic plants.
Have you tried adding a little aquarium salt?

IMO Pimafix doesn't work all that well either, I'd pick yourself up some kanamycin
