Ick Help!!

I just noticed that 3 of my fish have white spots on them. My yellow tang, naso tang, yellow eyed kole. I also have a bubble tip anemone and a haitian pink tip Condy. What do I need to do to treat this?

What else do you have any cleaner shrimp or a cleaner wrasse. If so they should take care of it if not I would look into getting some. Or go into qt

The wrasse and shrimp work at a controlling level. They won't erradicate the problem. Especially with fish that are really suseptible to ich like tangs. Ich reproduces at an immensly large rate, larger than any animal can handle. With fish like tangs, you need to hospitalize in a quarunteen tank.

See, my fish are new also. How many cleaner shrimp do you recommend I get and what type? And how many cleaner wrasse do I need? I currently have 2 cleaner shrimp, and I just purchased 1 cleaner wrasse.

You have the same count as me just keep an eye on the wrasse that he eats well. He will make for great entertainment too he just happens to know how to push powders buttons and knows that powder can't catch him yet anyway lol
