if its ich he should be getting more than just one white spot. you cant use any type of cure stuff in your tank. do you have a quarantene?

I don't have a quarantine tank, that is my quarantine. It looks like there are other spots too.

AOA since no one has said it. You need to get him eating alot more and fast if he has ick. In that pic he is very thin. He should be plumped a little more. The reason I state that is that he is a tang and tang are prone to get ick. If it is indeed ick and it gets worse and the fish does stop eating he is gone. Its good to keep them eating when they get ick. I get ick all the time, why I dont know. I dont do anything, my cleaner wrasse gets what he can and the fish survives. They never stop eating or anything like that. I do no treating at all.

He is eating. Would a bluehead wrass clean him? Or just a cleaner wrass?

I wasnt saying anything about him not eating now. But just watch him because he has ick and is a tad bit on the skinny side. BUt yeah a cleaner wrasse will work.

I think liveaquaria may have starved it before shipping. :( He is eating alot, so he is doing better about food, but I'm noticing more ich spots. :(
