and the only fish that has the white stuff and doing the rub against the rocks thing is the coral beauty,should i only qt him??


also if i have to qt all the fish, what about the dt?? will the ich go away with the anemones,turbo,crabs,and star in it?? and is it on the live rock/sand??

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?

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.
