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.

You can try decreasing the salinity.

Check your water for everything you can. Bad water stresses your fish.
Find out what is stressing your fish and they will heal.

If not, a quarantine tank is the only other solution.

First check for stress on the tank I wholly agree treat the cause not the
quick fix.
Some time ago I had a little 10G up and running and had bought a striped
damsel with White Spot. The addition of a Peppermint shrimp fixed the
problem. It was Ich just like in fresh water tanks.

The bonus of peppermint shrimp is 1 they take care of Ich and 2 they eat
Aptasia like candy. The problem is they also will nibble other anemones.

perhaps a skunk cleaner will cure the problem safely. They will both eat ICH
as soon as it get near them... breaking the lifecycle.
