I’m not able to do anything this morning, but can set up QT this evening. I have this guy, a yellow tang, 2 clowns, and 2 flame gobies. Looks like gobies are affected as well. Best way to go about QT everyone? Thank you!

Yes :( it looks like Ich to me.

I just lost a tang I was trying to QT to ich.

I did hyposalinity without a refractometer (huge mistake).

All the LFS recommended copper treatment as being the easiest. If you dont QT now he will die within 2-3 days.

Confirmed ich
QT for at least a week. Do water change and siphon bedding in case any cysts are hanging in the bedding

Should I QT all fish together? I have a 20g long that should hold everyone somewhat comfortably for a short time.
Yes - this does look like ich. All the fish have been exposed, so they really all should be treated. Trouble is that you are going to need to be able to house them separately in a STABLE Q system for 30 days for the copper treatment, and then up to another 45 days to ensure that the ich tomonts in your DT have died out. Not good news, I understand.

Someone doing hypo without a way to check salinity should not give advice ;)

the fish will not die in three days, you have time To get everything situated, I would use copper power and hanna

Look up Humblefish on the web and in this forum and do exactly what he says. May not save these, but you will understand what you are dealing with and how to fix it. GOOD LUCK! If you have been around a while, we have all been there.
