    Hi I just got this young orange shoulder tang and she is in my 40g quarantine tank. She's been eating algae very great twice a day. She's been in there for about two weeks now and I just noticed the spots this morning. The tank is a hypo-salinity tank at 1.017. I do that cause the medications are tough on the fish. I've tried googling the spots and keep coming up with black ich and it looks nothing like it and if black ich is anything like regular ich it can't survive at that salinity. Please let me know what you guys think. View attachment 190071 View attachment 190072 View attachment 190073 View attachment 190074

    Look up brookinella and cryptocaryons (marine ich).
