out of concern too, i put what i had left of an ick treatment in the tank overnight..it wasnt enough for a full dose but better than nothing. i have a copper based treatment but was told i couldnt do it in the main tank without killing hermits and other stuff. i hate to segregate these 3 big fish but i will if it gets bad. the stuff i have i think doesnt treat the ick but is an immunity booster for the fish so they get stronger and fight it off. if i remember right how this stuff works. id rather put something in that attacks the parasite but i dont want a death pool of crabs and such on my hands if i can avoid it. will try to snap a pic, but the blue tang is quite shy and rarely makes an appearance while im standing at the tank. he looks like he has white specks on him the same size as those white pods
. just hoped it was a temporary thing but im guessing i have bigger problems right now.
