I've had a 90 gallon tank running for about one year. It was running perfectly with 2 anemones (pink and bubble tip) and one each of:
Clown Trigger (see below)
a leftover damsel
So I introduced a Powder Blue Tang 2 days ago, and it appeared very healthy at the time. When I got home from work today it was loaded with ich. I moved the anemones out and have started treatment with Rid-Ich (formaldehyde, formalin and malachite green). I am wondering if anyone has used this same stuff and, if so, what kind of success have you had? All of my fish are young - about 18" total.
On a side note... After cycling the tank I took out all but one damsel and brought in the trigger and clown. After about a month the trigger developed some type of infection on his eye. It looked like a real small spot of cotton about the size of half a pea. It went away in about a week and I thought all was good. Now (about 8 months later), as far as I can tell, he is about 90 percent blind. He goes to the top when I throw flakes in there and darts in the general direction, but instead of stopping and inhaling it like he used to he blows right by and runs full speed into a rock or the side of the tank! He will eat if I put food on the end of a stick and hold it in front of him for awhile, but he gets nothing from a normal feeding. Any ideas here?
