    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    The parasite is already present, the other fish are just not symptomatic. Tangs seem to become symptomatic under any stress. Marine Ich is already alive and well on your other fish just to a lessor degree.

    As long as the tang is eating I would continue that course and watch your water quality or anything else that might contribute to stress.

    Good luck.
