You haven't been a pain in the butt. You need to make sure you keep all your thread on one page because it makes it hard for us to help you. Now, if Esau gets sick in another month, then by all means open up another thread. But, if you have two threads on the main page going.... we may be giving contradictory information because we may be asking different questions and only getting parts of the story.
First, make sure you purchase different equipment for each tank. That means different nets, different buckets, different hoses/vacuums, etc... anything that comes in and out of the tank you need one for each tank. This will prevent cross contamination.
Second, I would make sure you have a stockpile of at least a few medications. At PetSmart you can get API General Cure, API Fungus Cure, API Tetracycline and API Erythromycin. You can get Maracyn and Maracyn 2 there as well... but I'm still thinking they have Sulfa in them (although I can't find where I found that now, and my packets don't mention Sulfa in the ingredients). Also Maracyn's active ingredient is Erythromycin anyway.
I would keep him in the hospital tank.
