    Hi, so I was feeding my nano reef and noticed my neon goby with some small white spots, and then I saw my clowns had some too. I'm really worried, what can I do? I've experienced freshwater ich but never saltwater, could anybody help?

    I can provide pics if necessary

    after just battling it myself. Best thing you can do is pull them out put them in QT and treat with Seachem Cupramine. The longer you prolong the odds of survival go down.

    Ok, I've just taken my old Qt down and converted to a freshwater, guess it will have to wait though. I really hope they survive, what are the survival rates and did yours survive?

    Ps will feeding garlic help?

    Garlic helps with getting sick and/or picky fish to eat. It doesn't actually treat anything by itself, but can help a fish stay strong because they often go off their food when sick. Food = strength, vitality and better overall health.

    Survival rates are pretty high if you can act quickly.;)

    Ok, I'll keep feeding to be on the safe side!

    I'll head to the lfs and see what they have.
