Well, he STILL hasn't been scratching. He goes after food like its his last meal and he's NOT breathing heavy, he's not behaving any differently - but still has some tiny white spots on him. So, I removed him and QT
him. I've been floating two large sponge filters at the top of the tank for about 6 days and they are now in my 20 gallon QT
tank in a hang on back filter along with a 5lb rock from my main tank. Hopefully that will be enough to handle his bioload. I'm not sure. I'll just have to watch the ammonia over the next couple days and stay on top of it.
Now, my other tankmates seem fine at the moment - yellow tang, 2 clowns, and a watchman goby. But, I'm assuming if it IS ich that they will all eventually get it and I should QT
them as well? The watchman is gonna be a pain to catch with all my rock work and I'm afraid my little 20 gallon won't be able to handle the bioload. I guess I just do daily water changes?
Could this maybe NOT be ich and perhaps its something else? The only symptom he has are the spots.
