Well if that's what's going on then ya quick cure. They did say ich was the problem in the beginning it would make more since to recommend a cheap simple fix. I have treated bad cases of ich with ich attack and the more severe cases the bottle says to double your dose. If it wasnt ich I wouldn't recommend you use it since you don't treat vomiting with a cough drops.

reality....disease for nemos are hard to gauge. is it ich; it looks like it cuz of the white dots. does nemo have labored breathing. did nemo stop eating after 1 day. try ich attack....if no changes in health by next day use quick cure immediately or death is certain. remember, best to place nemo in quarantine cuz if it is not ich parasite remains in mt approx over a month and will die; if you have fish most likely it will host/infect your fish bit not inverts. good luck to all of you

Sorry the fish died. Many advice (not all) here has been incorrect. There is no way you could cure the fish without quarantine never dose any meds in your tank especially not quick cure. It will kill corals, inverts, and most importantly BACTERIA! For the next time pick up a 10 or 20g to use as QT dose with quick cure 1 drop per gallon every day as well as 20-40% water changes every other day or so. After a week maybe less you can dose 2 drops per gallon. I hope this helped. Also almost every med that says "reef safe" doesn't work. I lost alot of fish trying to use that kind of med when I started SW but since I've quarantined ive lost 0 fish srry for ranting but I just thought it was needed here.

I lost all my fish in my 210 display tank because of ich.
I put in a uv sterilizer and let tank run with just my corals and inverts for 8 weeks. I also cleaned my sand bed with regular water changes. I did not use any chemicals or treatments. No problems since.
I also use a QT now with canister filter. No sand because that is where the ich likes to hide when it is not killing your fish. When I am not using my QT I clean the canister filter with RODI water and let it soak in it for 24hrs. Then I hook it up and let it run off my sump on my display tank building up the bacteria in the bio media until needed again.
