    Woke up this morning and found all these spots on my foxface. My yellow tang has ich but i have been soaking all the food in selcon and is has seemed to be helping. But now over night my foxface has these like sores? on it. Not sure what it is. Not sure why the tank even has ich. I feed differnt foods every day,(mysis, brine, thera pellets, and a homemade mix with garlic guard and a lot of other stuff) I also put in half a sheet of nori every other day for my foxface and yellow tang to pick at.

    Also last night i fraged my torch coral. Cut 1 head off that i believe was affected by brown jelly disease. When i put the healthy head back in tank some of the jelly like stuff came off, not sure if that could have affected anything?

    Paramaters are always stable and good. Will test water tonight to double check nothing is out of wack.

    Hopefully pic is helpful. Also he seems to be acting normal(scared, runs and hides when i move fast, but still came out to eat this morning!)

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Personally I think your fish got stung by a coral or the anemone, perhaps while sleeping.

    If the fish is eating and condition does not worsen I would do a wait and see approach.
