    Well... basically, I just started stocking my new reef tank with a few kewl fish, (ocellaris clownfish, tailspot blenny, two-spot goby. (RIP) ) and everything was going fine, until I started hand-feeding my clownfish, since I saw a few people online doing talking about it, and now that I started...

    So recently, I've noticed white spots near the head and tail of my royal gramma and the head of my bicolor blenny. I've struggled with ick in the past and have overcome it with surprisingly great success. My problem is that, with all of the live rock in my 60 gallon tank, there is no possible...
