ick wont affect any inverts. if you move the inverts to the QT they will perish once treatment with copper begins. QT the fish and leave the main fishless for the 6 weeks. I am going to add my clowns to the main after an empty tank and qt period thanks to ick.

i have bought a ich medication for my fish.
it contain no copper and the instruction says that i can put the medi into the main tank that won't harm all fish, corals and invertrates.
is this safe?

If the med is considered invertebrate safe, it will usually also not be strong enough to kill a parasite.

What is the brand name?

It is a 50/50 chance wether or not the product will work. More often than not, it won't be affective. Ruby Reef and Fish-vet put out similar products and neither are 100% effective.

It has now been a full week since your first post. How is the clowns appearance?

Cheers
Steve

First be sure of what your treating. Faded/loss of color is symptematic of many illnesses. Has the clown developed any more/less spots or is there anything additional you can add description wise.

The med you already purchased should really be returned if possible. It won't be effective. As far as what you should get, it will depend on your answers to the above question. Sick fish that require medicating will definately need to be QT'd.

Cheers
Steve

How long have the spots been gone and are you noticing any whitish film floating about the clown or any red sores?

I think the word your looking for is "clamping". If you own a digital camera or can borrow one, posting a clear closeup image would help immensely.
