    I checked the trigger this morning. Most of the spots are gone. His skin looks bad, spots of color but most of the color is gone. it looks kind of like sunburn on people. I've treated the tank with Maracyn and Coppersafe. Removed inverts and am hoping for the best.

    Copper is the most effective way to treat ich period! Unfortunately its not reef safe. There is a product made by instant ocean called LifeGuard which is supposed to cure ich. I am currently using this on my new Powder Blue Tang which broke out with ich in my QT tank. It seems to have cleared the ich with no ill effects.
    One thing that is a must when using copper is that you must get an appropriate copper test kit and measure levels daily. Too high and it will kill your fish. Too low and it wont kill the ich.
