Help with Ich Disease.

I have to Maroon Clownfish which I am having a big problem trying to pair, the samller one is in very bad shape because the female is chasing him everytime he on sight and yesterday when I came back from work, the male has white spots all over his buddy, I read this is the Ich Disease, but I cannot find any other way to treat this other than a QT tankl.. is there any other way to treat this?

If you can catch the clown it is better to just QT him. Do not use copper based meds in your QT (Oops, I meant DT). Copper is deadly to inverts.

Yes, my bad I thought that by "other than QT" you already had him quarantined.
