What med(s) would you recomend for ich and flukes and an bacterial preventaive(secondary infections) that can be used at the same time in the same tank for angels/tangs

Thank you for your inquiry. We do not recommend treating your display aquarium. However, placing the infected fish in a quarantine/hospital aquarium is suggested. Raise the temperature to about 80 degrees, no more than 82 degrees for about two weeks. Soak the fish food in Garlic Extreme as this will help boost their immune systems so they can fight off the ich.
Coppersafe can also be used to combat parasites provided a quarantine tank is used, along with Maracyn Two or Maracyn Plus for secondary bacterial infections. Please contact us with any other questions or concerns.
