Killer

Hire spot is a killer, thought I got rid of it as my marine Betta n lion dnt have it and it's been about 6 weeks with no sign, I put a yellow tang in and within 2 days he gets it, I no the only way is to take everything out the tank and leave it run for 6 months through a uv steriliser to get rid but realistically when u have a £700 pound coral that's the last thing I want to do, any1 no an easier option

You only need to leave the tank fishless for 6 WEEKS, not months.

You can put the fish in a qt tank while the main tank sits fishless. The corals will be fine.

How big is this tank by the way?

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

Tangs are very susceptible to parasitic infections compared to your marine betta and lion. They are especially prone to it during you first introduction to the tank. But if your marine betta and lion arent getting it, maybe just run the sterilizer with them in the tank and dont add anymore fish. I would say you could add a cleaner shrimp or two and they will eat the parasite, but one of your fish might eat him

Hi, I had a white spot outbreak two years ago after adding a yellow tang. After looking at all the "reef safe" chemicals I decided none of them were worth the risk. At that time setting up a separate tank was out of the question so I figured the fish in my system were doomed. As a last ditch effort I introduced 2 scarlet cleaner shrimp. Within a few days the shrimp had cleaned all the spots off my fish and I have never had an outbreak again. Neon gobies will also clean fish but I wouldn't add more fish to a system that already has white spot but, the white spot doesn't seem to effect inverts.

I don't know much about this someone local is trying it out and they had good luck with it the only thing that doesn't look great is the xenia .No-Ich by FishVet, Inc. So far so good it has been 4 weeks without any other spots on any of the fish all invertebrates are doing great, They are also using garlic vitamins and huffs (I don't know what huffs is the next time I go to lfs I am going to ask a lot of questions). This store is out of town so it might be a few weeks before I can get there.

They sell only through distributors to individual stores, but a quick google search shows that it is available through Pet Solutions or Amazon.
