get him out of your main tank to a quarentine tank before he infects your whole tank. Keep an eye on the rest because some ich may have droped off him already

well what else is in there. is there rock, sand, inverts what, because if there is you can't treat the tank and without treatment the fish will surely die. A ten gal. tank is only about 15 or 20 bucks

Ya I know but their is only like 10 lbs of rock and 20 pounds of sand and both are live. My dad is arguing with me that u don't need a quarantine tank because he's only had freshwater tank. I'm the only one in the house who has the salt and I'm like arguing with him on how to treat it

If you just leave the system fallow(no fish) ick will starve and die in 6-8 weeks ..
