Powder Blue Tang ICH

Have a nice 4" PBT that I have had for 4 days. When I first got him he was doing great for the first few day until this morning. When I went up the stairs to check on my tank he wasn't looking to good. He had brown ICH spots all over him. Do you have any advice?
I don't have quarantine or any room for a quarantine tank
I have an anemone in their and a piece of coral
Thanks

I have two of these fish and feed them daily with a garlic suppliment (New Life , Spectrum, Marine Fish Formula) this was recommended by my local fish stockist, he swears by it. No harm in trying.

Freshwater dips work well. Also cleaner shrimp will rid your tang of ich.

I think you mean cleaned it all off. It looks like you have a cleaner wrasse! Does the same job of a cleaner shrimp. Congrats.

Cleaner shrimp will not rid your tank of ich. They will eat dead tissue caused by the ich . Freshwater dips only remove the cysts on the outside of the fish . Neither are not now or will ever be proven to be a cure for ich . Hyposalinity or copper are the only 2 cures.

Well I apologize for missing that part. My comment was more toward the cleaner shrimp ridding a tank of ich part of the thread .
