Ich?

If yes what's best way to fix? No other fish but the butterfly have it either yet

Looks like it from what I can see. Definitely set up a hospital tank and try either copper or hypo salinity. From what I've heard nothing else works. A FW dip causes some to let go, but I've only experienced ich once. Didn't go well :/

Ok after further investigation of the other fish I noticed a few others with it also...if I do the lower salinity in my dt and quarantine all the fish in another tank what about the invertebrates ? Will I need to remove them from the dt also ?

The whole idea of hypo salinity is to actually expose the fish to it. I'd also assume it would be really bad for inverts, due to the fact they're pretty intolerant

So just in my quarantine tank do the hypo treatment and in my dt do the copper and not the hypo so I don't kill my inverts?

I think I'm going to take all the fish out of the 55 and use my makeshift quarantine tank (Rubbermaid 30 gal tote) for them with a HOB filter and heater and I have another 30 gal tote and hob filter for the inverts and snails...and do the hypo on the dt and fish quarantine ...3-4 weeks seperate right?

copper will kill inverts, do NOT ever put it in your display. take all fish out of the display and keep them in qt for 6-8 weeks. the tank needs to be fallow for the ich to die off. inverts can not carry ich, you can leave your coral/clean up crew in while treating your fish. now that you introduced it, there is a pretty good chance all your fish could be infected so you will need to treat them all

Do I need to change filter media after fallow on dt or will it die with no hosts? The crazy thing is I was just thinking about me being lucky so far I hadn't gotten ich yet before I rearranged the dt...jinxed myself Doh!

it will die off completely, no worries to change anything. just think of the people that sink thousands into their tank and this happens!!!! now you know better
