My tank is a 300L fish + LPS tank.
I bought 3 pcs of corals (2 hammers and 1 torch) 3 weeks ago, I put them into the tank without dipping them, (just did temperature acclimation) and a few days later, ich started to show up on the fishes. I didn't put in any medication into the tank because of the corals. I tried to catch the fishes, but no luck. So now, only 2 fishes remain, a purple tang and a mystery wrasses. Both fished have been in the tank for about 2 years. The purple tang have white spots on over the body and one of the eyes is affect as well. The wrasses seems un-affected, no sign of white spot on the body. Both fishes eat well, and look "happy". I am now feeding them with Nori and frozen food soak in Ultra food energizer from Fauna Marin. What else can I do? Thanks.

Thanks.
I tried catching them, but not success. And both scared of me now, and will hide away whenever I come close to the tank.
