that's what i was thinking...a sudden raise in salinity could kill a fish.

Throw some numbers up here on your tests, or people aren't going to be able to diagnose the entirety of your situation, and you may just be back in a week because we overlooked something due to insufficient information.
Salinity:
Ammonia:
Nitrite:
Nitrate:
This list at the very least. If you get a guy at the fish store to do them, have him write them down and make sure they use liquid tests, not strips.


Secondly, there were multiple links posted on exactly how to cure your fish. Use your previous tank as a QT and go through the steps and wait it out. There is no one-step cure all for marine ich. Simply raising the temp will only make this much much worse. It's a ton of work, but you made the commitment to the fish, they don't have anyone but you to help them.

Make sure you wait the entire period in the articles no matter which route you go, ich lives not only on your fish but on the rock and sand, if you don't wait, its just going to happen all over again.

Best of luck!

I don't have the numbers on me, but I did go to the fish store and tested fully the water, including Salinity, Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate and everything came back perfect; but my fish died with the white spots on them.

I'd say ich for sure, start the treatment method of your choice ASAP and next time you get the water tested, make sure they write the numbers down for you. Most of the time its just someone who is trying to make a sale, so they tell you that you are all set so you want to take home more.
