    Reef Safe Meds??

    I have a young Regal Tank that has a small (not Ich) spot at the front base of its dorsal fin. I noticed it rubbing on coral occasionaly so I've concluded it has a parasite of some description. The other fish are fine.

    Capturing it isn't an option without totally destroying my tank, which I'm not prepared to do unless of course my other fish begin to show symtoms of the same thing.

    I think I know the answer to this question but here goes.....are there any meds out there for parasite irradication that are completely reef safe?

    IMO, none. I would just continue to feed with SELCON,GARLIC soaked foods and keep the water quality up. there are some ''medicated foods'' but I know nothing about these.
