    My friend those seem to be extreme cases.  I've seen fish die with so little ich it looked like they had some salt grains stuck to them.

    Since the coloring of the fish is throwing you off, try looking at the fins of the fish.  Small tiny white white dots on them can be ich.  IMO I'd administer Greenex.  It is copper-free. Hurts no-one, but the ich.  

    Oh and by the way those fish covered in ich in the pictures.  I think are really really tough fish, I have never seen ich get this far along  with any fish.

    THE PROBLEM W/ THIS GREENEX STUFF IS THAT ONE WEB SITE SAYS IT SUCKS AND KILLS EVERYTHING INCLUCLUDING FISH: GREENEX ONE SAYS ITS COMPLETELY REEF SAFE MAYBE ITS THE DOSAGE.  DAVID DID YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BOTTLE OR DID YOU ADD LESS?

    I added 30% less than was instructed, because I didn't actually have any ich. The directions say 1 ML per gallon. So I put 7 ML in my 10 gal. However, in the tank for the office, with the ich infested tang, we put 55 drops, as directed for a 55 gal tank. It cured all the ich. All corals are safe and still alive. All fish are good, aswell as all the inverts (snails, shrimp, hermits, and seastars).

    I strongly recommend it. Personally, its never let me down.
