All you have to do is move all the fish to the QT. Crabs, snails and other inverts don't get ich. Keep your DT without any fish for 8 weeks and the ich that is in the DT will die out by itself for aa lack of a host(fish). How old is your tank? 3 anemones is allot for a 28g. and they don't do well in a new setup. what type of lights do you have?
ok so i found out that it is not ich... but it is an infection in the coral beauty,, im told angle fish get this offten,,or are more prone to catching things. lfs saye its pop eye,so im going to just treat the coral beauty.
Popeye and ich are two very different things that look very different. Ich looks like little specks of salt on the fish. Popeye can be from many reasons, but primarily a bacterial infection that causes the eye to bulge. It could be a secondary infection along with ich. But the two should be fairly distinguishable from each other.
