IMO, I had the same thing happen in my reef. My fish did not die but were visibly covered in ich. I tried some different treatment as I did not have a QT tank. What save my was rasing the temp to 92 degrees F for 3 weeks. It's stressful on the fish but the Ich cannot survive in it and it will die. It worked for me, is stressful, but can save you the damage by treating with other products. My inverts were safe as well. Just watch the temp daily to make sure your not any warmer.

Ok my last post in this thread. Raising the temp will not kill Ich. Only a copper or hypo treatment are proven. Spots falling off the fish is the normal lifecycle of Ich. They will cyst and grow in the sand bed for about 28 days. The cysts will then burst and the Ich will infect fish at night. The next outbreak is generally much worse.

I posted links to valuable information about the lifecycle and treatment. READ IT!

Fish are still alive in QT tank with the correct doses of cupermine, Purple tang still coverd in ich and clowns are covered in it as well.

When I do water changes I add the correct dose of cupermine to the new water.

We'll see what happens!

both clowns went belly up!
Purple Tang back in Main display tank to see if he makes it. If not well the tank will be a coral only tank for the summer!

So far since my tank started ive lost the following.

Two pairs of clowns
Two Yellow Tangs
Maybe soon a purple tang...

After the clowns died I decided to put the Purple back into the DT. So far it looks like he might fight off the ich but we shall wait and see. This is day 5 of ich.
