I recently purchased a Regal Tang (Hippo Tang) and placed it in my main tank since it was the first fish I am introducing to the tank (except for 2 emerald crabs.) After 2 days I believe it he has Saltwater Ich. He's not scratching but he has white dots over his body and fins.
It's the first fish I have in the aquarium so I didn't quarentine him.
is 8.3, Salinity is at .024. Temp. 75
I've done all the tests (Ammonia,Nitrite,Nitrate) and everything is ok.
What do you think happened? The LPS
is very credible.
Should I treat it with hyposalinty? If so, should I do it in the main tank because there is no other fish in there (except the crabs?) or put him in a QT
? What about my LR
? Will the medicine affect the LR
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
