Default White spot

Has anyone had problems with white spot on their fish. Would like to know
how to treat this as I also have corals and a clam alive in the tank and
don't have a quarantine tank to separate them. Any help very much
appreciated.

I don't want to be mean, but if you don't have a quarantine tank and
aren't quarantining new arrivals, then I personally feel that you
aren't doing a good enough job of being a caretaker for your fish.

Plenty of people who don't want to go through that much effort, who
just want something pretty that they can enjoy probably won't like me
for saying that. Too bad. These are living creatures. Creatures
whose well-being you have taken responsibility for. Just because
they aren't fuzzy and as personable as a puppy or kitten doesn't
mean that the assumed responsiblity is any less.

But enough of the rant, to the issue at hand.

Read the series on marine ich at "Advanced Aquarist". All of the
effective treatments involve multiple tanks as a part of the treatment
protocol (transfer + cleaning) and/or to protect inverts. This means
that you really need to spend some money on a quarantine/hospital tank
or end up with all of your fish dead.

Here are the articles:

Good luck! I hope you make the right choices in the days to come.

Ross
