Ill try the zoa con, ive been soaking food in kents garlic gaurd. I bought some metronidazole by seachem as it was fairly inexpensive, i want to add a tang so bad but i cant afford to keep loosing them to the ich thats in my systrm already by adding them to an ich tank. All my other fish build up an immunity, and my clown is able to keep clean with his nem so he hasnt had a problem but i see white spots on him occasionaly

It sounds like you may just want to keep treating for a while, let your tank mature a bit more and then go from there. I would wait a few months before adding anymore fish. It will help all the way around but by then the ich will sure to be gone. Also, why don't you consider going with a yellow tang. They are very hardy and do well in a 75. They will add some nice color in there as well and they will eat everything in site.

A yellow is all I have, it has survived a clown tang and powder blue illness. I love them very colorful and to me kinda a tank tradition. Sailfins are sweet also. Sorry to hear about all the bad luck, I've had a lot of issues in the past with other tanks, very discouraging. My watchmen I've had since 08' was missing for six mouths till he came out, pretty bad when that was when I had my 12g nano lol. Just keep your head up

Hey sorry i haven't been posting lately! Ive been dealing with fish dying i lost my tang and my damsel to ich. Wont be adding anymore fish for a few more weeks, although I did just purchase a HUGE long tentacle anenome for 50 bucks. Its bigger then my head ! And its foot is almost as long as my forearm! Im picking it up at 530 and going to be adding him tonight. Hope all goes well.

Sorry about your losses. What treatment are you using for ich? I just added a court jester goby 2 days ago and this morning I noticed a white spot on his tail fin. Not sure if its ich but if it is I'll need some ideas for treatment.

I used reefx. Worked like a charm, also dosed kents garlic extreme and used metronidazle as a food soak for infected fish

It's good to use preventative measures and quarantine if at all possible as well. I use marine Maxx almost anytime I add a fish and it also goes through a quarantine. This will save you a great deal of trouble esp when you get to a bigger tank and it becomes a problem to catch the fish or treat the tank as a whole.

Don't want to hijack your thread Dim. Thanks for the info, I'd love a Qt tank but space is an issue. Good news is my court jester goby doesn't have ich. No spots today! Yay.
