I guess sicce its been some time since betting in the hobby, I'm rusty... I have my first livestock (2 occellaris clowns) in my quarantine tank for observation, 12 days now. I haven't treated anything prophylacticly. As of yesterday morning before work I noticed tiny white spots all over In the QT tank but when I returned later that evening from work they where not there. I chucked it up to possibly air cells. However this morning its present again. Attached is a picture of both fish, which makes me question ich. But I don't know why it would be present on the glass and then disappear. I notice this first thing I the mornings when I first turn on the lights for the day, does that have something to do with it?

I have a large sponge filter in the tank.

P.S. yes I know the darker one has a few nips on the fin, this was from an initial dominance play but appears to have ceased as of last week, the lighter one having laid claimed to alpha in the pairing process.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170824/39a68640d8a94a4adf165f427c07ae18.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170824/53f53dc57bb3b17181d1363cdcc5817c.jpg

I guess if no opinions one way or the other, I may just go ahead this evening and start a cupramine treatment. Im curious to see how they look when I return from work today. So I guess for water changes one justs pretreats the new water to the same level before adding...

Maybe try posting in a section with more traffic like New to the Hobby or Reef Discussion? Could also do the fish disease section. I dont know what is on your clown, but would advise against copper.

It looks like Ich to me, classic white spots. Is your tank fish only or reef tank?
