Raising the heat does nothing for ich in saltwater, that is a freshwater remedy. Your temp should be consistent always, I keep mine at 26 (degrees) which I think so around 72?

Well it's a hot summer here in Tallahassee, Fl. It's upwards of 100* each day. My reef tank is a constant 79* F. I only use the heater sometimes in the winter.

I just looked it up, 26 is about 79 so there you go!

How big is your tank and how old? What size and how long have you been keeping the powder brown?

Your profile says you have a 200 liter which is about 50 gallons. Tangs need a lot of swimming room and a tank of that size will not give them the room they need.

I hope its not too late to quarantine the tang. It needs copper treatment. The higher temp will just add stress to fish and only slow ich. Use Xtreme Garlic to boost fish immune system.

65 gallons is still not enough room for a tang

Just because the spots are gone does not mean the ich is gone, it falls off the fish as part of its life cycle. I would recommend treating all your fish in a quarantine tank with copper, if you don't you risk the ich infecting your whole tank...
