I plan on adding my fish extreme melt slow. The angelfish will be added last and the aquarium will probably be a year old by the time he is added

I also would like to know that if I bought the tang from petco, will they take it back when it gets to large thanks.
Cleaner shimp will not help with ich. The ich is attached under the fishes skin where the shimp can't get to it.

Lemonpeels for sure have the blue lol

As for the cleaner shrimp I have not personally heard of it helping with ich but doesn't mean it's not true. My yellow tang loves the cleaner shrimp though and I often see the cleaner shrimp hanging off of it. I've read this is pretty common between yellow tangs and cleaner shrimp.

If you don't have one I would definitely recommend getting one if nothing more than entertainment. I have one and its my favorite this far and I want to get another. Lots of personality, the fish love it for its cleaning abilities and he even hops onto my hand every time it's in the tank. A must have in my opinion.
What cleaner specifically do you have?
I want to get one, but am worried my moorish idol will think he's a fancy feast!
