Sick Tangs

I currently have a naso and a yellow tang in QT right now treating with cuprimine. My question is my yellows spots seem to be black now but still like ich and has white spots on its eyes. The naso's eyes are completely covered with a white hazy lens and he wont eat prolly cause he cant see the food. The yellow tang still eats like a horse though

Are these other simptoms ich related and will they disapear with the cuprimine?

Thanks,
Rich

The copper takes a few day, you should see a difference soon. Are you using seachems multitest to check levels?
Are they ich spots on the eyes, or are they cloudy?

quarryshark, yes I do use seachems test kit...the nasos eyes were cloudy unfortunately he died today while I was at work

The yellow tang is still dealing with ok, he swims around and eats so I think he'll pull through.

Thanks,
Rich

Sorry for your loss. The cloudy eyes as you already know are a bad sign.
I lost 3 to velvet before the cupramine cured the rest.
Stick with the treatment, it does work and should help your yellow.
Good luck!!
