On second thought...

I thought my Naso was sick before and then after noticing my clown covering her in sand as she swam by I let it go. The spots have never dissappeared and there aren't very many, very very tiny. But she is getting thin and her fins look a little ragged at the very tips. Also noticed my clown has what appears to be rubbing marks though i have never seen him rubbing. I have a QT not big enough for all those fish. Can I QT in a rubbermaid container? A very large one. I know observation will be next to impossible unless I find something in white...but will it harm the fish? Also would I be jumping the gun by throwing everybody into QT?

Don't know what to tell you there without seeing them. From what you desribe, you may have something going on...not sure.
Keep a close eye. Sorry, I'm not much help.

Actually it makes me feel much better now to know I have the means to treat them. Purchasing another tank is out of the question right now. I am waiting, but if the tang starts looking any worse i am pulling them all.
