+1 as fragile as fish can be they are by nature resilient. let them try first. but take this as my only real experience is fw.

Feed them well, and let them go through one ich cycle. If the ich comes back after it has fallen off, then do a hypo salinity treatment since this will cause the least amount of stress on the fish and won't ruin a tank.

I had a tomato clown who had ich when he arrived. I think it was due to the stress from shipment. After a week it died down and never re-appeared. I also fed him alot with thawed mysis that soaked in garlic. Most important is not to stress them, that lowers their immune system badly.

In my oppinion and experience is that ich is more stress related AND the treatment we usualy expose them too (change in environment, medications, moving them around etc) makes it only worse

Im sooo scared that its gonna wipe out my tank. The only reason I say that is because I've heard some horror stories and plus its spreading soo quickly. Im going to leave them alone for now, they are still eating good. But I wonder if it continues to spread like crazy, could I do a copper treatment one fish at a time in a 10g?

You can definitely do that, but while you are treating the first fish, every other fish has the possibility to die. And then when it's done and you put it back into the display tank, it gets ich by the next day...

Sitting on ur hands and doing nothing is terrible! U feel like you need to do SOMETHING. but I seriously wouldn't know what else to tell you. A tang in a 10g sounds like torture to me

Make sure u feed the garlic stuff, that's sadly my best advice next to "don't do anything"... So sorry, I know how u feel

d@#n ich! ok ive calmed myself down as much as possible. im going to watch them closely over the next 24-48 hours ( swimming habits, feeding habits, physical appearance) and if the ich doesnt atleast slow down some, im going to transfer them to my 55 and copper treat. I know that copper isnt the most ideal treatment but i feel that in my case, its the most definitive. i did however want to grab a few pictures of my engineer goby out and about. here he is.

That's why I'm stressing the fresh garlic so much I don't trust the processed stuff
