Hello all, Well I have had my tank running since Feb 1...On march 15 i went and bought 2 clown fish and a solar wrasse...On march 23 i went ans bought a blue tang...Now i have noticed that there are lots of white spots on the Blue Tang and a few spots on the other fish, but they come and go...Do you think this is ich and if it is what can i do?
I have have a blood shrip and i noticed today that one of the clown fish and the blue tang swim around him and he also grabs them and it looks like het cleans them...Is this good or bad?
It is indeed marine ich.:) Tangs are often known to be quite prone to ich so your blue tang is likely to be the prime suspect.
Read this one.:)
Ok, what is the size of your tank? And it sounds like ich to me. tangs are ich magnets. make sure you are feeding him and he is eating well. eating will keep his immune system up, so he can fight the ich. If you have no corals or inverts in the tank you can try slowly lowering the salinity to kill the ich, and slowl raising the temp. in the tank to speed the ich process up.
Re: Possibly Ich
last time I got it checked everting was good and I have a 55 gallon tank. Also does a blood shrimp clean off ich?
