My fish have got ick problem which is rubbing there skin on rocks. this leads to dot on fish very soon.
I've got couple of clown fish and demsil with corals around.

point is im worried if i use medication for fish then corals could die and produce poison in the water for other fish.
Is there any ways safe or safe medication that could work!!!!

please suggest.

farazmalik, its would be better if you could treat the fish outside the tank.
most medicines will hurt either the corals or the inverts in the tank.

You must catch the fish and treat separately. Your main tank should be without any fish for 6-10 weeks.

If you cannot catch the fish and treat in a separate tank, one option you can try is Medic from Polyp Lab. It might fix the problem. I've seen it in BPK I think.
