    Thanks for posting. I'm always interesting in seeing how you experienced people deal with things like this just in case I have to do the same!

    ^^^ What Lady Hobbs said! ^^^

    I'm glad to read the powder brown tang is on the mend and with an appetite.
    Well done Cliff.

    Thanks guys

    I learned my lesson many years ago to QT fish you buy from the store. Regardless of how well the owners keep there display tanks, you can't trust their suppliers. Too bad I had to learn that lesson the hard way.

    It's a PITA, but all your fish will thank you for the effort

    Another lesson for people here; Powder Browns and Powder Blues will almost always come with Ich and thus will always require treatment. They are beautiful fish for sure, with that one small drawback. I still haven't seen the exception to this. lol Glad the fish is doing better. Marine Ich is really easy to cure in a QT tank. I'd rather deal with Ich then velvet or most other diseases in a SW tank.

    Thanks Goldbarb. I had read about that but was wondering if it was true or just some urban legend.

    Can the same thing apply to hippo (regal) tangs ? I had read they can be very prone to ick as well but I thought that just might be due to more hippo tangs being kept as compared to other tangs and that these tangs seem to be more common to people new to the hobby as well. My hippo tang never did come down with it while I QTd him and now Im starting to wonder if him & I might have been lucky there.

    No rock is "nonporous" enough to keep from absorbing cu Cliff. Better off with more pvc fittings. Are you susing cupramine and seachem testkit?

    Yes, we are using the cupramine and a copper test kit. I forgot what brand of test kit tho, my wife picked it Monday and I have been on the road since Sunday night.

    I know the rock will soak up at least some of the copper. I'll likely through it out after this. The tang seamed to be very freaked out by all the white in the tank so I added them to make him feel more at home

    I must admit, I had never run into that type of reaction before. I'm going to replace the white PVC fittings with some black ABS when I get a chance to go to the hardware store.

    Nope, not just lucky. Mine never had Ich either. I've only ever had one SW fish ever come in with Ich on it and that was a Sailfin Tang (Z. veliferum) but that was easily treated. Tangs in general are probably more prone to Ich than most other marine fish, but there are particular species more prone than others. Ironically, the more aggressive the Tang, typically, the more prone to Ich they are.
