ive been battling a fungus type of ailment for over a month and whatever this is the meds dont touch it so i saved the last girl that came down with it with salt it dosent look like columaris because it looks like fungus ick like salt but its fungus. as a last resort i bought some kens medicated pellets and she got better so this morning its back so i broke out the empty 10 gallon put the rest of the girls there qt 2 more in 1 gallon bowls. my question is whats the best way to clean whatever it is out of my npt there snails in the tank or should i just qt the plants and chuck dirt rocks and all thanks in advance

most things that attack fish need a fish host to survive, but not knowing what it is I dont know if the tank going fishless for a week or 2 will help so yeah I would give a try of it being fishless for 2 weeks and if that does not work you might just have empty the tank and start over.... or maybe treat the tank with some Malachite green but you will have to take the snails out, it's plant safe and safe for most fish it should kill the fungus
