With the introduction of a foxface we've come to encounter marine ich. Our powder blue and purple and yellow chromis have since passed due to the illness and now our two clownfish have been inflicted. Last night we gave them a fresh water bath with a drop of Quick Cure. The clowns are now sitting on the bottom of the tank, barely able to move, with white slough coming from their bodies. We fear the sand and rocks may be harboring the parasites now in a mass reproduction style invasion. Considering the soft corals in the tank, how can we cure the ich without killing any of the corals?
