Man Podo, im sorry to hear about your loss. Are any of the other fish that are till living showing any signs of ich, white spots like sombody spinked salt on them or scratching on rocks or the side of the tank? Do they look stressed out, swiming circles, swimming into the current? I'm at a loss honestly. I would expect the tang to chase the beauty, angel and goby, mayby to the point of death. But he is daed too. Do you have a test kit? Check your amonia, ph, nitrite and nitrate levels.

I gave my tank the second 4 1/2 oz dose of No-Ich this evening. All still looks good. The tang and the tusk are eating. The tusk is eating is really well now, but i still see the white marks on his fins and tail. With the skimmer turned off, i see a film of crap forming on the surface area of the tank water yuk. Its still early in the treatment, so i'm still in teh waite and see mode.

Quick update: Everybody is still alive and eating. I'm starting to think that the white spots on the tusk's fins are fungle infections now, not the ich parasites. I will post a pic tomorrow after i give the third dose of No-Ich to the tank.

Tonight was Dose #3 of the No-Ich. Again, i do not see any aditional ich parasites on my fish, and the white spots on the Tusk's fins and tail are still there. The tusk did not eat much today, but the tang ate very well. I took several pictures of my tank tonight, i will be posting them as soon as i get a chance. Here are my water parameters taken 1/2 hour before i dosed the tank with the No-Ich:

Ca=390, Dkh=10.4, PH=8.2, Amonia=0, Nitrite=0, Nitrate=20, SG=1.023

Today i was taking pictures of my tank to post here on this thread, and i noticed for the first time a strange mark on the tusk's body. His dorsel fin by his tail looks a littel mangled and there is an ovel shaped mark about an inch away from his tail. I think the tang is picking on him. Oh yeah...Still no signs of Ich.

Tonight is the last dosing. I am happy to say that i suffered no losses
I do not see any signs of ich on any of my fish. It looks like I one of the lucky ones that this product worked for. 8O

I am not fully convinced that it was the No-Ich that did it. I am considering continuing the dosages for the extra 2 weeks, like suggested on the lable for very bad infestations. This way, if i continue to use it for next two weeks, and do not see any ich, i can be fairly certain that the infestation is gone.
