well ich is going to be a common occurance with a tang. as long as you make sure he is well fed he should survive. do you have any corals or inverts?

One thing I will say is get a UV Sterilizer.

yes i do have coral and inverts , and a clown and bicolor , cleaner shrimp he is well feed daily has algie to eat from the tank do 20% water change every 7 to 10 days hope he dont spread he has 3 spots if it gets worse will it do it know or after a few days it may start to get better

yeah, unfortunately there isnt much you cant do to treat it in a reef tank. but like mike said, a u.v. serilizer would be a great investment for times like this.

hi i have a nano is there a good uv for that

frogman6 06-19-2007 08:51 PM

a nano is no place for a tang but most uv sterilizers are expensive

black&whiteclowns 06-19-2007 09:08 PM

ok, you have your tang in a nano and not a large tank? if it got ich that may be your problrm. its to small and to more than likely stressing it out, even if it is a baby.

black&whiteclowns 06-20-2007 07:49 AM

he doesnt look stressed eats great doesnt hide at all just when i clean for a few min,. he has 3 spots 2 on one side and 1 other both on fins not on body , and it looks to be losening if it gets worse im going to pull him but no wherer to move xcept back to the store , anyway i will just have too see what happenes im setting up my 125 this week so when it cures he will move over
