Kind of hard to see but it that like a pimple or can you describe it better. Does it look like a piece of cauliflower? Just hard to make out.

i know, he wouldnt stop movin, so thats the best pic. it doesnt look like califlower. i guess more like a pimple, but it looks pulled out, thats why i think he was bitten by one of the other clowns that were in the tank. some of them looked a lil beat up, the ones i picked didnt have anything on em, i guess he netted the wrong one, got tired of me tellin him
"no, thats the wrong one." i didnt notice unitl i got him in the tank. they are in the tank now, im a bit mad at the lfs, but they are my fishies now. i will take better care of them, than when they were there.

so it turns out the clown had ich. the store wouldnt take him back, and now ive got an ich breakout.

i dont know what to do. i could take the fish out and treat with copper, but wouldnt the ich still be in the main tank? i cant take the coral out becuase they need the mh light, which means i cant do hypo in the tank either. what do i do???

in my reading, it seems that i can take out the fish, treat them, and just go fishless in the main for 8 weeks, and that will kill the cycle of the ick, do i have it right???

thanks for the links. i understand the hypo and copper treatments, ive got a tank up with some foam form the main tank. since its less stressfull on the fish, im goin to do the hypo.

my concern is with the main tank. is it true that if it is fishless for 8 weeks, it will kill the cycle of the ick?? i cant seem to find that info anywhere but on aa.
