Mt tang had ich but a herbal medication and a cleaner shrimp seems to have done the trick....when the parasite falls off of the fish, it then lays eggs and hatches and that's what I'm afraid it is...

I was just told that ich doesn't turn white until it attaches to a host. Don't know how accurate that is though. So if it's white on your tank , you might be in the clear

You can also take a flash light to the glass at night. Mine are mosre active then. Wanna get really creeped out? Take a SERIOUS look at your rock. I mean really really look. You should have little creatures running around on that too. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
