I did not have a royal gramma but I did have 2 clarki clowns the reason why I resorted to water changes is cause I could not catch them to treat them in a qt so I was literally changeing 10 gallons (in a 55g) every other day for 2 weeks and here it is 2 months later and they are both very healthy

They are healthy becaue their immune system is strong enough to fight off the ich. The water changes didn't get rid of the ich. But whatever, I probably have ich in my system too, but all my fish including an Achilles Tang are healthy enough to fight it off and they look great. Perfect water conditions, correct size tank, aquascaping with hiding places and proper nutrition can work wonders.

I saw they only form in cycling tanks, mine is over that stage.. So why are they forming still?

maybe because of the water changes youve been doing are you using ro water or tap water?

Tap but this is the first time i seen this since my tank has fully cycled. Could the medication be doing this?

And could i possibly use the filtered water system that came with my fridge for better water quality. The ro di units are a lil too expensive for me right now.. And wondering if that would work. It would take alot more time but it may be worth it?

Yea its the tap water the brown diatoms live on silicates that are found in tap water ro di units are a good thing to have they filter out all the bad stuff
