    So I'm going to guess my blue tang is dead, I haven't seen him in two days and he's usually out swimming during the day and eating, he was small, probably 2.5 inches in length. He had a small ich issue that was resolved with garlic pellets but I'm afraid it may have claimed him!
    The two clowns I have show no sign of ich, I'm going to look for his body after work, does that mean my tank will forever have ich?

    All parameters seem to be perfect so I'm gonna say it was the ich that got to him :-[

    Don't give up hope. I have had a blue stay sightless for over a week and the re-appear. They ARE MASTERS AT HIDING.

    I sure hope so, although with these signs of ich I'm worried
