Well you could always try one of the reef safe products out for ich and that. Ruby Reef Kick Ich, Kordons Attack Ich, Chem-Marin's Stop Parasite. Some people say these were miracles, some say they're a waste of money. That's one thing to try if u can't QT him or anything. Better than nothing IMO. Good luck and keep us updated!

When I freshwater dipped I didn't notice any difference either. It was a long time ago but I quarantined and ended up treating with medication. This may be your best bet to make sure he survives.

If its a black spot or what they call black ich it's actually a type of flatworm. Here's a link with more information:
