Okay, I'm adding this so that you do not lose ALL of your fish.

GET THE FISH OUT OF THE DT, ALL OF THEM

Put them in QT, do hypo or copper (not sure on your fish types if copper is okay for all of them) and leave the DT without fish for at least 6, better 8 weeks.

Read every one of the articles melosu58 posted and get those fish on the right track before the next outbreak kills them. Then, re-read them, save them as bookmarks and keep reading them during the treatment time so you won't be tempted to put the fish back too soon.

I could be nice and say try this or try that, but that is how I lost all but my 2 clownfish. I did hypo with them for 6 weeks and they are healthy, and ALIVE.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Definitely listen to the above. I'm going through this right now. Only 5 days into my hyposalinity treatment in QT. It sucks, but I want to keep all my fish.

Thought I was gonna lose my tang...so far, so good
