Well it happened, my yellow tang finally got it off my clown goby I guess. The goby passed last week in QT and I thought my tang was safe enough but I Noticed the white spots on his fin late last night.
Getting him into a QT would be near impossible as he is faster than light and ducks into rocks even when I go to feed him.
I havent tested the water yet since I found this really late and am at work right now so Ill get those readings later but I wanted a head start in asking at least. Does ANYONE know of any reef safe ich meds.
I know Prazi Pro and paraguard were plant safe in my FW
tanks and worked with great success but I havent found much for reef except garlic and QT, and when I look up yellow tanks with ich almost everyone says they can never get their tangs into a QT.
I found this.
Chem-Marin Stop Parasites
Ich and External Parasite Treatments: Chem-Marin Stop Parasites at Foster & Smith Aquatics
Does anyone have any exp with it? I have a UV
sterilizer on my FW
tank I Can move over for a while with some work but Im wondering if its worth it. I am hitting the LFS
today for supplies so I will try to find something and maybe give the garlic a try but I have NEVER had luck getting fish to eat anything with garlic in it, they simply spit it out and there seems to be enough stuff in the tank for the tang to munch without my food for him to make his own choices.
Its a 29 gallon (the TANG is VERY juvie and I will swap him when hes to big) running a 65gallon rated skimmer.
Speaking of skimmers, Ive wondered since ICH is a free floating parasite, do they get skimmed out? I mean if the skimmer can do tiny particles of detritus wouldnt it grab the parasites as well? Im wondering if putting my own skimmer in conjunction with my new one to double skim a while if it would help.
