Hi, is this ich?

my hippo tang seems well and normal. Eating well, no unusual behaviour etc

it has been in my tank for over 9 months now.

I can’t see any spots on any other fish. Everyone else seems fine.

I have a QT tank I can get up and running if needed.

if this is ich can someone point me to a step by step guide on how to deal with it.

I have snails, crabs, conches, starfish corals etc in my tank.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Okay, this is definitely ich. I would recommend putting this tang into quarantine ASAP. I recommend buying some cupramine off of Amazon.com. This stuff has worked for me in the past. I will leave the link in here too. I hope that this works out for you my friend. Happy reefin!
