Well I know many many people dont like UV units,but since I started useing them ive never lost a fish. At the end of the day they have an off switch.

Do not mock the snake because it has no horns.For who is to say that one day it may become a dragon,as one just man may become an army...Water Margin.

Quarantine as Hk does before the fish go in is great,however once the tank is infected I have had fish go back in after being in copper for weeks  and within a very short time they were infected again.
I hope your fish oull thru.

It's really hard to tell from those pics.  Can you get a better pic of any of the fish?

Well I have heard of them pulling thru if they keep feeding,I just prefer to keep a UV . Its all personal choice and what works for you.
It would appear to be totaly different imo to the freshwater beastie that shares a common name with it. We actualy realy know bugger all about its life cycle what other things it can live on whether it passes thru inverts like snails?


Ive often thought maybe it can lie dormant in a cyst stage untill something like the chemical signals a stressed fish sends out trigger it to hatch?

Yes I think like u say stress must just trigger it somehow.   My coral beauty doesn't look good struggling in the current and mostly hiding. The regal (magnet) is got quite a few spots on it but seems fine

Ah shit!  That really sucks.

I'd really encourage you to read these:
Marine Ich/Cryptocaryon irritans - A Discussion of this Parasite and the Treatment Options Available, Part I by Steven Pro - Reefkeeping.com (this is part 1, so search for the others too)
Marine Ich - Myths and Facts | Reef Sanctuary

There are a lot of myths due to the cross-over from freshwater, and misunderstandings.  Get it clear in your head, then decide what you want to do to cure it.  There's no easy way unfortunately.

Thanks:
