Saltwaterfish.com ICK!!!!!

I just received my naso tang from saltwaterfish.com and it is fully covered in ick. Anyone know a good way to cure this or have a good instructional website to do this?

Do they have a 14 day stay alive guarantee ..Never ordered from them but i would take a picture and send it to them...
I would do a FW dip then QT in hypo...If they don't have a stay alive policy then i guess your SOL,,thats too bad that you got it that way

Yes they have a 15 day guarantee. I bought the instant ocean lifeguard that is supposed to treat the ick. I kind of want to stay away from the fresh water dip.

You're probably right once I put the tang in the QT tank the spots faded away but are still visible. Going to leave it in QT tank for about a week and if it goes away ill put it in my main DT. I'll update pictures tomorrow.

Somebody that I know bought that same Tang and has the same thing happen. The spots went away pretty quickly. I don't think it is ich.

Ok well I would qt for longer than a week just to be absolutely sure. You don't want to chance anything. I have been battling ick for not qt fish for months . Finally broke down today and rehomed most of my fish and went fallow today. Not something i would want anyone to go through. Good luck

The spots disappear when lights are turned on. Looks much better this morning.

I also bought a brown tang and two domino damsels along with this naso. The other fish are already placed in my DT. I hope they didn't have any ICK. I just set up this QT yesterday when I thought the naso had ICK and I leave for a 5 day vacation next week. I don't have an auto feeder for the QT.

Do you think the naso would be fine if not fed for 5 days?

I have a salifin tang / Brown Tang / Naso / 4 damsels. 150 lbs of live rock. Do I have too many fish in my 90 gallon? ( 30 gallon sump )
