So the other day I started treating my ten gallon tank for Ich,
Originally it contained 4 guppies and 3 swordtail, since then there are now 3 and 2. All fish are infected to some degree. Just now I found about 13 baby swordtails in the tank. Is it safe to move them to my 5 gallon with my baby guppies, or do I run the risk of infecting all the guppies in the tank by doing so?
all help is appreciated

Won't they get eaten if I leave them in the tank?

keep the babies in a breeder trap or net in the same tank until you know theyre treated. That's your safest bet if you don't have another empty tank for the babes.
