    Here is a crappy pic. Fish swims to fast to get a good pic. If you can zoom in on it you can see some of the spots. [​IMG]

    One more thing. I have a small UV light that went into my old filter/skimmer combo. Will that help with the ich.

    I can barely make any out; maybe two total. About how many do you see? It is one thing if a fish is covered, another if there are just a few.

    Yeah that pic stinks. It's hard to take a good pic. The fish has to be still. Lol. You can really see a lot on the purple. I'd say at least 50+ spots on the fish.

    Well I've lost my coral beauty and my royal gramma to this ich. My two clowns have just been swimming in the same corner for a couple of days. They have never done that. Looks like they are next. This sucks.

    I tried but they swim around to fast when trying to get a pic. This is the best I could do. [​IMG][​IMG]
