Nope, I'd say tangs and surgeonfish are more susceptible and probably from a weaker immune system and lower toleration for stress than other fish. Most lfs' have a flow-through filtration system which almost guarantees all fish are sharing each others bacterial or parasite problems and any heavily stocked fish, such as a royal gramma, are bound to show signs consistently.

Just a theory... but I think you just read about it more because royal grammas seem to be fish that most beginners get early on... before they realize the need to quarantine, and before they can spot a sick fish in a fish shop. So unfortunately, they become "practice fish" for a lot of folks.

Well my Royal Gramma died recently after an Ich outbreak, and my Clown made it through in good health. I think I was just one more with bad luck, but truly I was a beginner when I got it and knew nothing of QT/inspecting the fish for sickness.

My Royal Gramma has major ich and has affected my clown as well. Couldn't catch it to treat it. My clown seems to be more resistant. I won't be getting another (similar)fish anytime soon.
