Watch out and in a few days all your fish will start dying. You better read about how ich multiply

Agree with Jeff that you should learn about ich but disagree about fish dying within a few days. I struggled with ich for a blue tang, isolated it and after trying hypo salinity treatment re homed him to someone more experienced. There has been no signs of ich with my other fish and that was about 10mths ago.

When you raise the water temperature you accelerate the ich reproduction cycle. If you just wait and do nothing to treat the fish don't you believe the fish will soon start dying from ich?

Here is something for you to read and I did the same thing as what "Flower" did who used Xtreme garlic and I had the same result to save my blue and yellow tang. The thing to remember is that "ich will die without a host". With that belief I treated my tank with Xtreme garlic for several weeks may be a month or so and they all live until now. It was about a year ago.

They ich dies indirectly by starvation since Xtreme garlic boost immune system and ich avoid attaching themselves to fish.

killing ich with high temperature

Ok this is weird they are eating so that's a good sign it seems like when I fed them they are healthy and swimming fast and normally but well see throughout the day. Fed them some brine shrimp covered in rich algae says free of harmful parasites

If you have ich in your tank then your bat option is quarantine and treat with medication. Don't turn up the temp or go hypo salinity as you'll possibly kill your coral. And as stated above, your tank is no where near big enough for the tang, and that's most likely why this whole ordeal started

Ok agree with the tang but I'm going to upgrade 200 plus the tang is small now. Also it will be a pain to catch the fish so I heard people use ich attack for reef tank so it won't kill your corals have you heard of ich attack dont want to kill your corals
