Not Sure Best Approach - Upgrading Tank

    This forum has been so helpful as I learn more about the hobby so wanted to start off with a thank you to everyone.

    Here is my current situation:
    I currently have a cycled 10 gallon with 1 panda Cory (getting 5 more), 4 neon tetras (getting 5 more), 4 pygmy corys and 4 nerite snails.

    I recently purchased a 29 gallon and added a 2nd sponge filter into my 10 gallon 4 weeks ago (so i have 2 cycled filters).

    My plan was to move the fish I have to the 29 and quarantine the new pandas (already bought and need to pick up asap) for a few weeks.

    The wrench in the new plan is that 1 pygmy developed a fungus spot on the top of his head.

    Since I only have 2 filters and snails, I was thinking the following.

    Put the new panda in the 29. Add the snails. Add a filter. Treat the entire 10 gallon with jungle fungus clear.

    What are you thoughts on this plan?-

    The pygmy will still carry the fungus, so you'll need to leave it behind in the ten gallon until it has cleared up :)
