    Black Spot or Tang Disease - Black Ich Diagnosis and Treatment

    What is Black Spot Disease?
    Typically a "disease" that is most commonly associated with Tangs and Surgeonfishes, but one that can be contracted by other species as well, what is referred to as Black Spot Disease, Tang Disease or Black Ich is actually caused by an infestation of tiny Genus Paravortex member turbellarian flatworms.

    Although parasitic organisms that are much less dangerous and life-threatening, as well as rather easy to get rid of compared to other ich diseases such as Oodinium, Cryptocaryon, and Brooklynella, nonetheless it is a problem that needs to be treated upon recognition to eradicate infected fishes of these parasites

    Dude, that is mainly for extreme situations (where the fish is not feeding). Like I said, if the fish is feeding, just leave it, it will recover. :)

    oh and keep him with a cleaner shrimp,natures own parasite removal tool!also cleaner wrasses work but sometimes they die as they dont often take flakes etc.

    good to hear he is feeding:) i have sumped fish before so that I can monitor them closely and feed them specifically and know that they get enough food, but in your case so long as he is feeding leave him be :) can we get a pic of him though? such beautiful fish too :) just to confirm i mean for u to leave him in the tank and just feed :)

    I would just leave the fish in the tank rather that Quarantine it the trapping and cathing alone will stress the fish and add greater damage, like you said the fish is eating add garlic oil to the food i use garlic extreme by Kent, do the salinity technic to speed up the ick life cycle and you can also add a UV filter just my suggestion.
