I bought a powder blue tang two days ago from my lfs
, i was told it had been eating well and looked well fed, it's colours were bright and it was very active at the time I took it. It has now been in my tank for a day and a bit, there are small white spots that have come up all over its body including its fins,
I have had my tank for 3 years and been very successful with most corals and live stock but iv been lucky enough not to get ich in that time.
I know tangs can get stressed so would that cause ich? and that quickly. there was no noticeable signs in the lfs
of it being unhealthy and the other fish it was with looked fine.
All my other fish look fine and healthy, if it turns out to be ich what can I do? A QT is probably not an option as my small flat is limited on space. Sorry for the rubbish pictures, best I could get with an iPhone Cheers
