Tank Transfer Method for ICH Treatment/Prevention (Does it work for 2 Fish at Once)?

I've done Tank Transfer Method to Treat Ich for fish Successfully.

WORKED each time so I do it for all new Fish as part of QT before DT (even if no signs of Ich)

I've always done one fish at a time, however I have opportunity for 2 Newcomers AT ONCE.

CAN I just do TTM with Two fish in One QT system at Once?

I actually have THREE 10 Gallon QT's so I could actually do some Cross Transfers between the Transfers (Splitting them up on Transfer 1,3....or 2,4)

So long as the fish don't fight and ammonia doesn't creep up within the 72 hours, you can perform TTM on multiple fish. (You can dose an ammonia reducer every 24 hours if you suspect ammonia is going to be a problem.)

Thanks for the reply and Vote of Confidence.

Two Fish in QT. Already did First Transfer Today.
No issues with Ammonia/Nitrites since I used DT water, and a bit of Active Seachem Matrix from SUMP (and a few drops of Stability)
Both Fish look super healthy (Yellow Tang & Copperband Butterfly).
Both Eating....and Getting along like buddies).

Keeping Fingers cross all continues as good as it started.
