Treat the tetras and keep the temp in the hospital tank above 80. Keep an eye on the other tank for any signs of ich to determine what you will need to do with that tank. Khrister would have more info on the pleco than I do, but I've never had a problem treating ich in a community tank with plecos.

How long have you had the tetras in the tank, and what might the stressor have been to allow the outbreak? These are things you will need to assess as you treat the fish.

Plecos are more resistant and if they get it they tend to a week or 2 after the first fish shows signs. So watch him for 2 weeks.

What are you treating it with??, i would raise the temp to 85 i do it all the time, and use quick cure for a week or 2 i think it works pretty good..
