My clown tang seems to rub his face(yes only his face), not his gills and body along the sand bed. Except there are no signs of ich at all(spots, heavy breathing) None of the other fish seem affected although that could be due to the UV
sterilizer. He's been doing it for weeks(4-5). I dont want to treat for something I dont know he has because I'd rather not stress everything in the tank out. I have a QT tank but I just set it up and needs time to cycle. He's eating algea sheets fine, actually he's ravenous. He also eats bits of krill.
He has no signs of anything else either. His scales, fins look perfect. The only thing I can come up with is maybe it's ich and the cleaner shrimp are eating it faster then I can see it develop. He does stop to get cleaned but the shrimp dont go after his gills like I've seen them do with fish with ich in a different tank I had. They seem to clean off his body more and his mouth.
I heard you can use garlic in the food help with ich and some other diseases/parasites. Does it need to be soaked overnight in the food? Should I put it directly into the tank everyday? Thanks
