    Welcome to Reef2Reef, Hail_Kat_Reef. Let's see if we can get you some relief.

    WV Reefer's absolutely right about setting up a QT / Hospital tank. As long as there are fish in your display, you're going to have problems with ich, and as long as there are corals and inverts in your fish tank, you won't be able to treat the fish with anything that'll eliminate the parasite.

    There's good news, though - if you can remove all of your fish to a separate tank - how big that needs to be will depend on the fish; you might be able to do it with something like a 40-breeder - and keep them out for 76 days, any ich organisms in your display tank will die of starvation.

    With your corals and inverts safely over in the display, the fish in your quarantine tank can be successfully treated with either ionic (Cupramine) or chelated (Coppersafe, Copper Power) copper or Chloroquine Phosphate to eliminate the parasite from the fish. There's no reef-safe ich treatment that _works_, so you'll need both tanks to make it happen - but you _can_ make it happen.

    Here's a link to an article by our own @Humblefish regarding ich, its lifecycle and its treatments:

    Other than reducing nutrients or perhaps shortening your daily lighting schedule, I haven't got much to offer in the battle against GHA - but perhaps a member of the #reefsquad will.

    I would separate them, but that may not be the best idea. #reefsquad
