sick tang!

All my hippo tang has been stressed and has shown small dots of white all over his body the size of a grain of salt . I've been watching and havnt done anything because it seemed to go away. I just started seeing my skunk cleaner all over the tang(hippo). The spots and skin discoloration seemed to clear up nicely but I came home and tonight one if his eyes seems swollen and looks as if Its protruding from it's socket! Is this a n advanced sign of ich, what is it, anyone seen it? What should I do ?

Sounds like popeye and ich. Only problem is ich usually doesn't just go away on its own. It falls off fish gets into substrate and comes back even stronger. Numerous ways to treat. Depending on if you have a qt

If it is popeye. I would do a partial water change and treat tank or qt with maracyn 2 for saltwater. I think they make a fresh water version as well. Don't let it go to long like that

As far as the ick they will need to be treated. Read these on the parasite and how to treat.
