    Good morning! New here but excited to be a member. Past few days my Dollyback has shown signs of ich. White spots. For a week now. The fish is very active and eats like a champ. My concern is what to do. A QT is not an option, I have a total of 7 fish, it will do more harm trying to catch them all and tearing apart the established corals and such catching them. I had red velvet about 3 months ago, wiped out the population in less than a week. I had to fallow the tank for 3 months. And here we are again. The other fish show no symptoms so far, but if the dollyback has it, it’s in the tank. Should I pull that fish out and give it away? Euthanize it? Just keep moving forward and see how it goes? I am concerned it will just keep hosting the ich as it reproduced each cycle. Thoughts? I am currently mixing food for all wish with garlic extract and mixing metroplex as a preventive and treatment. Thank you! 6BB8D222-CDF3-480A-B0FF-A0602925E21E.jpeg 8A5E5D8D-9D31-4515-9B58-9DC9A996FC5F.jpeg 3CDEBC61-54B2-433A-9A76-A94F5AABFD69.jpeg D5A8CC3D-F7DD-4CB5-A1C8-07355127D3D5.jpeg 46FBED76-4D2A-4BD6-818D-CBE65B3DA13B.jpeg
