Sick Yellow Tang

I just completed my vodka dosing and all my levels are at zero. My yellow tang just started to rub "flashing" against my live rock. I am aware that this could be a sign for ich but I haven't noticed any salt crystals on his body, fins, or gills. I have a cleaner shrimp so if it is ich can he remove the parasites or does he have to be quarantined? I noticed he has been trying to let the cleaner shrimp on his body more frequently.

Shrimp won't cure him if it is. Read up on QTing and hyposalinity treatment. Heard many say that's the best alternative. Also keep in mind diseases like marine velvet which kill faster than ick starts in the gills and spreads fast and likely will kill.

Just read up, prepare, and be ready to treat as you continue to monitor, Best o luck.
