    Hi there

    My bi-color fish is fully covered with Ich, almost like a white matt color covering his body. What can I do to treat it as I cannot catch it so will have to treat whole tank - 900lt?

    Had the fish for 5 months and suddenly went backwards this past week. All tank parameters within limits and no new fish added for at least two months. Have a few LPS.

    Is there anything I can use / suggestions?

    Much much appreciated
    Herman

    Garlic guard and fresh chopped up garlic cloves 2 to 3 times daily with frozen cube food. This helped for me. It helps strengthen their immune system. Itch attacks fish with a low immune system due to stress from another fish fighting with it or water quality or food variety etc.

    Another option is to move all your fish to a hospital tank to treat them and so that the itch dies off in the main display because of the lack of a host.

    Cool. Try the garlic guard and put your skimmer off for an hour or 2 during treatment.
