What's the best way to prevent and cure Ich.. I've been having issues. The last time I got infested, all my fishes died. Now I have 2 cleaner wrasse and 2 clowns. Wrasses are now showing signs of ich, :(

Maraming factors kaya nagkaka-ich bro..

1. Stress
2. May ich na talaga yung ang acquired fish
3. Mahina immune system ng fish (not healthy) kaya madaling kapitan ng ich
4. May ich ang nsw

Solution: make sure na healthy ang isda (feeding them with garlic helps bigtime)
Many members here including mam jemzac experienced ich infestations in their reef tank. The solution, garlic & a healthy fish. A fish that eats have a very big fighting chance to resist ich.

for the garlic dip... just crush one piece garlic then place in a cup
add at least 3 tablespoon of ro water then add fish pellets... mixed it up
and babad mo for 1-3 mins... then feed the pellets only... :D

My sir, using uv, medyo controlled outbreak for the free floating, form last dec powder blue super dami s skin till now mga 2-3 lng seen in body, with sometimes meron bacterial s fins but it goes away...
Reef system i cant catch him, so i put 2 cleaner shrimp then another 3 so 5 in all. With six line wrasse, feeding them 3-4 times a day. With everything from live foods soak vitamins and spirulina. Flakes food with garlic ocean nutri soak with vitamins and spirulina, pellets soak with vitamins . And i put filter socks on the sump. This is just my regiment..
I have a qt and paraguard for curing but i cant catch him.
On my 50g reef tank. Si powder blue lng meron ich, the others no sign. 1 majestic, hawaian tang, 2 clown fish, 2 mandarins, starry blenny and now missing in action six line wrasse.
Very stressful when ou see him got ich, problem kasi s kanya very aggressive.kaya lag stress.

misconception na nagpapagaling ng ich yung garlic.. garlic entices a fish to eat and eat.. kaya mas maraming kinakain mas magiging healthy and the fishes' immune system will combat ich..

bro, baka kaya may ich kasi stressed siya palagi.. 50g is too small for 2 tangs and a large angel.. matapang pa ang pbt.. and super sensitive pa niya sa ich..
