well one of the times ich come on is when a fish gets stressed. just because he doesnt look stressed doesnt mean he isnt. he needs to get moved asap or he will get worse and possible die.

Well think about you being stuffed in a meduim sized dog kennel. It would suck no matter how long it is for. It good that you are or putting up a 125 but hopefully the fish lasts that long. Like stated before ick is a sign of stress. He may be eating fine know but it can be overnight and things can go down hill. Also in a nano ammonia and what not will effect the fish alot quicker. Which can also leave to stress.

Who was it there are only 4 people that work there? Me and the 2 owners and and there friend. What tang was it? And when was it that you got him? But besides the point, that might be a factor why you have ick. We keep our fish in either 55's, 65's or 120"s. That tang was used to being in one of those sizes tanks and when you bought him and but him into your tank he m ight have got stressed. Im not saying he wont survive or anything Ibe seen strangier things working there. Theres nothing you could do but keep him eating alot of algea. As long as he keeps eating he will make it. As soon as he stops thats when the troubles come. If you csan try and get the bigger tank up and running.
