I don't know. I treated for 5 days with the stop parasite and my results were compete mortality. All the fish showed signs of cloudy eye, fin rot (torn up), faded colors and labored breathing. All the mentioned signs showed up and fish died within 24-48 hours. From all my research online it points more towards oodinium then ich. I could be wrong, but the quick die off sucks either way

if you saw cloudy eye that would indicated a bacterial infection and you would of needed to treat for bacteria as well. sorry for your loss. I spoke to the manufacturer before using the product and they were very helpful.

what did you use to treat it. The only sure cures are copper and hypo other then that your taking a gamble on weather they'll survive or not.

Hey listen i have a blue tang and i had the same issue and the best treatment for ich is ich attack but put double dose if you use the one for the reef . It worked for me very well but after time i found a better way to cure the ich - (garlic) the next day the blue tang had no more white spots , it took few days for the white spots to despair from the eyes but now looks beautiful. Blend the garlic, mix it with a little-bit of water from the tank and shake for few minutes until the water gets white. Take the garlic out of the water using a strainer and add some food to the garlic (frozen recommended - brain or mysis shrimp) and leave the food to absorb the garlic water for few minutes then put the food with the water in the fish tank and good luck. Let me know how it works for you .
