ICH???

could this be ich?
i know my banded coral shrim dust him with sand every night and yesterday the spots were there in the morning but in the afternoon they were gone!

checked last night right before lights out and the spots were back???

i have 3 corals 3 hermits 2 snails 1 firefish and 1 banded coral shrimp

here is a pic of the fish and let me know if it is and what i need to do!

and i do not have a QT tank yet no room or money for one

also the colors are bright as ever no dulling at all just as perky as normal appears to be under no stress and does not rub against rocks or the sand and is eating very well

It really looks like it is. Good thing js with a small fish like that it's easy to get a ten gallon tank and give him a hypo treatment.

Inverts are not affected by ick so just leave the tank fishless for 6-8 weeks .

No that will kill the inverts. You need to treat the fish only with hypo in the qt. Maintain the main tank as usual.

Still crazy confused!
What appears to be ich disapears during the day and the "spots" are never in the sane spot!???

Did some reading and talked to my lfs guy and aparently firefish have slimmy bodies and have sand tend to stick to them especially a fine sand bed

It's hard to say for sure then . Just keep careful watch and hold off on any fish purchases until your absolutely sure.
