Ich!

What is the best way to treat ich in a reef tank? I've done research and a lot of people say to take all fish out and leave the tank farrow and treat fish in a quarantine tank for like 8 week! Is that the best easiest way all I have is a 10 gallon for a quarantine..

UV used correctly can be very helpful in treating many aquarium diseases, but can affect the effectiveness of medications. A UV sterilizer should be turned off when medication is administered, especially chelated copper treatments

My yellow tang got ich a year ago.  Immediate quarantine and treatment for about a month, kept in 10 gallon quarantine for a few weeks after no visible sign.  Worked great and he's healthy pig now.  Obviously don't add copper to your main tank.  I usually soak food in garlic now to be proactive; haven't had another problem since.
