Steve: just got some advice that if I put a regal tang in my system, he'll almost definitely get whitespot at some time...even if QT'd correctly...

Sorry but I gotta say it... BULL!

If you place any fish in a QT the stress from transport, acclimation and adjusting to a new tank will assuradley bring about the parasite if present. Changes in environment will spur the parasite as well the fishs' own lowered immune response would leave it much more susceptible. If so it can then be treated accordingly and be done with. If a fish developes C. irritans after the fact and the process was done correctly, it did not originate with that fish.

Cheers
Steve
