You should freshwater dip then quarantine. After the dip, it will be extremely stressed, causing the ich to come right back. Make sure it is eating food with garlic too.

I think the only way to evn keep white spot diseas in remorse is a U/V sterilizer.. Very strong little light that will kinda zap and keep control of the parasite.. Now thats IMO.. i still havenr picked up one and my queen angel is i think contracting a internal parasite.. Best luck to ya

I'm really amazed at how well the freshwater dip worked. He's still alive barely, but all the visible ich is gone just from two 30 second dips. Now how do I minimize stress so hopefully he can recover a little?

Put some seaweed in there. Also, if you can, get NLS Thera +A pellets. That's what mine eats.

Hmm I'll have to go get the pellets tomorrow morning if he makes it through the night. Everyone keep your fingers crossed, this is my first major ich problem after 2 years of the hobby so thanks for all of the help! You guys have been good advice. I will update in the morning.

You can try Praxipro. Its more for worms but try it and you can treat it in your main ndisplay tank. I just treated my yellow tang with it for yellow tang disease, seems to be working and I have inverts and everything in my tank included feather dusters and everything is doing fine. Just follow the instructions and don't over dose it.

Personally ,i would not add any kind of medications ...
Sounds like he's recovering the best he can from the FW dips( you can do another if you see more spots)...i would put some nori or seaweed in though..
UV does kill ich ,,but only in one stage of its life..the free swimming stage,,and it has to pass directly through the light..not very efficient IMO...Ich has many stages that only a fallow tank will take care of..

I hope he pulls through,,it sounds promising
