I agree, FW dips are kinda tough on SW fish.

I don't get it. You "think" you have a fungus, yet you treat for a parasite?

Nothing happens fast in this hobby...except failure. Don't be "pretty much winging this hoping for the best". Slow down. Identify the problem. Do some research. Read up on the life cycle of ich. Do you see those symptoms? Water changes are always good a good starting point.

If the best place in Houston recommended a fw dip with ich meds and didn't actually see the fish to identify the problem....they are far from being the best place in Houston.

Sorry Louise... but there is no "one-med-cures-all" for fish. It's no different than humans. If you think it's fungal, then treat for fungal. Have you moved the fish into a QT yet? If not, that's the best thing you can do, not only to allow you to maintain higher water quality, but to isolate it from other fish.

If you can post a picture of the fish, that'd sure help...

quick cure does promote on the packaging that it does cure all he listed. i know it is a long shot. but that is straight from there package. If your saying it cant cure, your saying its false advertizement. someone should take care of that. so have fun doing so.
