 Update  of  the  month..!
 
    The  tank  has  progressed  I  can  see  good  coralline  growth  on  the  LR.
 
    But  recently  3  fishes  (Damsel,  Brown  Tang,  Clown)  died  due  to  white  patches  that  appeared  and  also  to  Ich,  i  don’t  know  why  it  happened  and  how  can  i  prevent  them??
 
   At  present  i  have  1  Yellow  tail  and  1  normal  Damsel  and  1  Goby  in  the  tank
   
   I  also  have  a  star  fish  which  look  nice  but  prior  to  the  death  of  fish  it  was  releasing  some  kind  of  Jelly  which  was  around  the  some  corners  of  tank,  so  i  added  some  fresh  water  to  the  tank  and  also  cleaned  the  Star  fish  with  fresh  water  out  side  the  tank.
 
 After  this  no  problem  faced  for  the  past  4  days.

 Muthu,
 Check  your  water  parameters  and  post  the  results
 search  for  the  word  hyposalinity  on  IAH  and  you  will  find  a  thread  -  go  through  the  links  and  read  about  how  you  can  fight  white  spots  in  a  invert  tank.

 Thanks  Nauzer,
 
   My  water  are  fine  the  reading  are  PH:  8.1,  Salinity:  1.023,  Nitrate:<1.
 
   Thanks  for  telling  me  search  for  "Hyposalinity",  its  really  one  must  read  and  under  stand  for  good  health  of  Fish  and  having  marine  tank  in  good  condition.
 
    At  present  will  not  be  adding  any  fish  for  couple  of  weeks,  I  need  to  catch  my  Damsels  to  treat  Hyposalinity,  it  is  very  difficult  how  can  i  catch  them  any  easy  idea??.
 
   I  tried  like  feeding  them  in  net  to  catch  but  was  impossible  or  can  I  live  my  tank  with  out  adding  any  more  fish  for  few  more  weeks  and  is  their  any  zero  side  effect  medicine  that  i  can  use  in  main  tank.
 
 Now  i  realize  why  we  need  to  adding  any  thing  to  the  main  tank  slowly  in  a  long  run,  is  to  have  healthy  and  stable  tank,  so  we  don’t  spoil  the  precious  reef  life  nor  lose  more  money  and  also  to  achieve  good  tank.

 yes  muthu  it  is  always  a  wise  option  to  maintain  a  seperate  hospital  or  Quarantine  tank  so  that  nothing  unwanted  enters  your  main  tank...esp.  if  you  are  maintaining  a  reef  tank  or  an  invert  tank  it  is  a  compulsion  that  you  quarantine  any  newly  acquired  life  before  introducing  it  to  the  system.
 I  have  seen  people  achive  limited  success  with  the  use  of  myxazin  for  treating  white  spots  in  a  marine  system  you  could  try  it..
 Do  you  still  see  the  fish  scratching  themselves  or  infested  by  parasites?
 the  UV  filters  are  also  known  to  take  care  of  the  fish  parasites  but,  the  dis-advantage  is  they  work  very  efficiently  at  35*C+  which  is  difficult  to  maintain  in  a  reef  or  invert  set  up  so  you  might  get  a  limited  success  if  you  use  a  UV  filter  (the  cost  of  such  UV  filters  have  gone  down  drastically  after  the  Chinese  companies  started  marketing  them)

 Thanks  Nauzer,  
 
 Now  i  don’t  see  the  fish's  scratching  them  self,  but  i  can  see  the  difference  in  colour  in  my  Blue  Damsel  a  kind  of  light  rusty  colour.
 
 I  have  canastine  filter  with  built  in  UV  now  i  have  switched  it  ON  24  Hrs  a  day,  let  me  wait  and  see  and  update  the  progress.

 Thanks  Madan..!
 
   Due  to  Marine  Ich  present  in  the  tank,  I  have  not  added  any  Invertebrates  or  any  more  fish.
 
 Just  yesterday  i  have  got  Quarantine  tank,  in  a  months  time,  definitely  there  will  be  some  Invertebrates.

 Very  nice  tank  ,  Muthu.  Good  growth  of  coralline  and  you  are  doing  the  right  thing  by  not  adding  fish  at  the  moment.
 To  get  rid  of  ich  though,  you  have  to  run  the  tank  without  any  fish  in  it  for  at  least  two  weeks  to  allow  the  parasite  to  go  through  one  lifecycle.
 
 Take  the  fish  out,  treat  with  hyposalinity  in   the  hospital  tank  for  minimum  two  weeks  and  then  reintroduce  them  back  into  the  main  tank.

 I  have  two  damsels  in  the  tank,  they  never  come  out,  and  their  body  is  been  infected  and  shivers  while  swimming.

 Ich  does  not  affect  inverts.  
 
 Do  not  use  melafix  or  any  other  chemicals  in  your  main  tank,  melafix  is  generally  used  for  external  wounds  like  fin  damage,  fraying  etc.  
 
 For  marine  ich,  you  will  have  to  either  use  some  copper  based  medication  or  leave  the  tank  barren  for  a  few  weeks...  these  are  the  only  solutions  that  work,  although  sometimes,  doing  nothing  also  helps!  Atleast  in  my  case  it  has  worked.

 amod  is  correct...  ich  will  not  affect  any  inverts  and  do  not  add  any  copper  based  medicine  to  your  main  tank  and  if  you  dont  have  any  inverts  in  your  setup  then  try  to  lower  down  the  Salinity  level  Â this  should  work..  And  never  ever  give  a  fresh  water  dip  to  inverts  ...

 Hi  After  a  long  time  to  post  my  tank  details..!
 
 My  tank  is  doing  well  now,  had  few  problem  green  algae  due  to  one  of  my  light  14K  white  loosed  its  Intensity  and  gave  a  boom  to  green  algae  growth.
 
 
   After  adding  a  Brown  tank  to  the  tank  it  has  changed  completely  now  all  the  LR  are  Polished  by  this  fish  and  also  i  have  changed  the  14K  tube.
 
 
   Also  recently  got  few  corals  Mushroom,  Sun  and  Polyps  and  Zoos  (Zoos  Given  by  Rahul)  and  they  are  doing  good  at  the  moment  after  i  had  Quarantined  it  for  10  days  and  moved  to  main  tank.
 
   Also  got  a  Big  snail  of  11  cms  long  free  of  cost  when  i  got  the  corals.
 
 Can  any  one  say  is  it  a  reef  safe  it  usually  comes  for  feeding  in  the  evening  and  in  day  time  it  gets  half  of  its  body  into  sand,  below  is  the  picture  of  the  snail.
 
 I  will  aslo  post  my  tank  PIC  shortly.
 
 Muthu

 Some  good  advice  from  everyone  here  on  this  thread  on  ich....
 
 Since  you  dont  have  a  lot  of  corals  n  inverts  you  could  move  them  to  a  quarantine  tank  and  then  slowly  lower  the  main  tanks  salinity  to  1.010  over  a  1  week  period.  
 
 If  you  have  a  heater  raise  the  temperature  to  around  29C  and  let  it  be  for  around  2-4  weeks  and  watch  the  ich  disappear....
 
 Do  not  dose  any  chemicals  to  clear  up  ich...there  was  1  by  Ruby  Reef  called  Rid  Ich  which  was  supposed  to  be  safe  in  a  reef  but  some  people  noted  problems  with  Xenia...

 Have  safely  used  Azoo's  product.  Now  dont  exactly  remember  the  trade  name.  Xenia  seemed  to  be  unharmed.
