I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My wrasses are the ones that have it worst... my gobies and clownfish have none (they don't ever see the cleaner shrimp either) My tangs are almost clear. But my wrasses are having a harder time of getting rid of it.

I use to get ich every time I added a new fish. Over the past 10 years, I have seen none. I believe the ich issues can also be controlled by excellent water quality, healthy feeding and lots of filter feeders in the reef.

I noticed the Ich on my tangs Monday afternoon and proceeded to monitor my tank. I couldn't see Ich on any of my other fish. My tangs didn't stay still enough for me to get a good picture of them, mostly the Ich was on their fins and face. But two of the less dominant ones had Ich all over. I watched closely all afternoon until lights out. When all that was left was the blue LED's I saw more Ich. My wrasses were covered in it. I couldn't see the Ich under normal light but under the blues was a different story.

I hope it clears up soon and you don't have to catch all of them.

I won't even try. As well things seem to be improving... (but it could just be the life cycle of Ich)

Adding to the saga of trials and "FUN"
Well something has happened that I wasn't expecting... I'm having massive Cyano die off and some type of green algae (that I have wanted to grow) has started growing. But today it was huge the amount of Cyano that was lifting off the rocks or just decomposing where it was. There is still lots there but I would say close to 20% is dead or dieing within just a couple days... I was not expecting this and I don't finish work till later tomorrow so I hope that there are no deaths while it goes through this transition. All of the die off of Cyano is creating an ammonia spike and it's at .5, Nitrites are at .3, and nitrates are at almost 0. I was not expecting the die off to happen so quickly so I don't have any bottled bacteria on hand to help to jump start the populations in the tank... I'll keep you updated over the next 2 days (I have Tuesday off so I'll post Tuesday night if not sooner)
