Sorry about your loss. Just for future references dont go by the "no spots now" as they will fall off the fish and then while on the substrate over 200 little ones called tomites will come from each one that fell off. It`s better if you QT your fish as you get them and observe them for a while to see if they have any problems. Again sorry.

I was following this guide: Marine Ich or White Spot Disease

That started with the SG at 1.025 and said to remove 20% and replace with RODI....which would bring the SG down to 1.020 if I'm doing my math right. Since I was starting at 1.023 I brought it down .004 instead of .005. While doing this I just pulled out a gallon, replaced with RODI, then checked the SG then removed/added until I got to that number.

So I got the QT all setup and used water from the display. Put the fish in, and let her settle for a few hours (probably 3) and then brought the SG down. Was planning on removing 20% of the QT water and replacing with RODI every 12 hours until I got down to 1.009

Mike -
So, the white spots fell off and will produce a bunch of these parasites in the DT?
Is this cause for concern or should I just continue to monitor the other fish closely for the next couple weeks?

Very much cause for concern. Your tank is loaded with ich now. It can not live without a fish host though. I would suggest removing your fish to a QT and treating with hypo salinity and leaving the main fishless for 8 weeks and that should do it.

wow! my poor fish...

So I'll go get a 20 gallon for QT, that should be fine for the 2 clowns and goby for 8 weeks?
Other than some PVC is there any reason to add anything else to the QT for the fish's sake? I know the goby loves his caves.

well i havent posted here in months but i own a coral beauty and its a breed that must be QT'd before entering the main tank. Even after QTing it, it is very subsceptical to re-intrusion of ick and other parasites. Try a copper treatment for 3 weeks in a 10-20g QT tank. Seller should of told, or you can check saltwaterfish.com for info before future purchases.

Read that first link I gave you. Excellent info on a QT.
