The heavy breathing is not always a bad sign with regals. They are quite excitable and just about anything gets them "pumped up". Be sure there is plenty of surface aggitation and check the ph/ammonia to be safe. Any sign of secondary infection, the eye's are clear?

C. irritans will embed itself into the fish and can be uncomfortable to say the least. The regal will continue to "scratch" until all the trophonts are gone. As long as the "spots" are not coming back in new locations and the existing ones are disappearing, I would continue as you are. If the spots keep re-appearing, then the treatment is not working.

Cheers
Steve

Ok thats is Exactly what I wanted to Hear.. For water movement I have an Aquaclear 30-60 that came with my 55gal tank.. I think its plenty of water movement for a {EDIT}10gal tank.. pH is 8.0 and Ammonia Is still 0 so I am safe there.. I have been monitoring quite excessively to make sure.. How long should it take for her to stop scratching.. Temp is at 80f Should I bump it up a bit more??? Thank God for QT tanks and this Website.. lol BTW the Eyes seem great.. Everything looks great with her except the Ich... And well since i couldnt tell if scooter had any spots on him prior to the tang due to natural look I guess they are now both getting treated for Parasites for extra precautions.. My wife is very protective of her "Dory" and often wakes me up.. "Is Dory Ok?" lol

Thanks Again,
James

Sounds like you are doing all the right things. I would leave the temp be though.
