It could be ich...it could also be caused by having too many fish in such small tank let alone a tang. If it is ich chances are the tank too will succumb. I've never treated ich but I would plan on setting up a QT tank and getting the fish into it. I'm sure others will have some more details on what to try..medications, garlic, hyposalinity etc.

OK...first, hexagons are show tanks so they are much taller than wide. This means that they are entirely unsuitable for many fish, especially ifit is already only 35 gallons. The tang in that tank is completely unhumane. Read a little more about the fish that you have. What kind of damsels, you might be able to keep them. From what you are saying it sounds like ich (not ICK). Good luck, and give the tang to someone with a larger tank
