Really a crappy position to be in, and unfortunately most of us have been there. Battled ich a few months back after picking up a pair of bangai cardinals. They died within 48 hours and unfortunately infected my 6 line, ocellaris and ywg.

I treated with Sicce Hypercure...but honestly dont think it had any effect.

I fed pellets with garlic and luckily they were strong enough to fight it off and survive.

If getting them out of there and into a QT tank or pail to treat with copper is an option id do it.

Best of luck!!

I used this stuff called ick spectrum shield. The powder. Works great. Contains chloroquine phosphate. Leave for 21 days eventhough I do 30

The Vortex XL Diatom Filter is one of the best ol school filters out there and it can really help out with getting ICK out there.

Check out this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIcru5_6YFQ

The only way to rid your tank of ich is to do copper, hypo, or leave tank fallow for 10 weeks while your fish are treated in another tank.

You could keep tank as healthy as possible, feed well, and hope for the best.

Filter sock, uv, or diatom filter can help control ich population, but is not a cure.

Kick ich, or any other reef safe so called cures are a waste of money.

1+ look at Paul's tank, I bet ich lives in his tank but his fish are so healthy they are able to fend it off like in the wild.

I was in the same position as u conflicted wether to run the tank fallow or ride it out I chose to ride it out soaked mysis with selcon and garlic and that really made a difference I lost a few fish but now got a uv sterilizer and still soak the food to ensure the fishes immune system stays strong good luck man parasites suck but we all deal with them try not to stress out the fish to much by putting ur hand in the tank or stuff like that
