ok sooo heres what i think i may do...give it a few more days..and treat with herbtana, if i see no improvement Quarentine my lionfish alone and get a huge rubbermaid to put the rest of the fish into to treat and leave the tank fallow for 6-8 weeks. Well see how it goes, my poor puffer has been toughing this one out for a while so i hope all goes well

It only eliminates what is in the water, which is not the majority of the Ich. The flow has to be set properly too or it runs through too quick and does not get all of it. Basically, UV helps a little, but is not a cure.

+1, Quarantine/Hospital Tank is the best way to go. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
