Ich or not Ich? That is the question

We went away on vacation for a few days, and when we returned noticed our Sharknose Goby has white dots all over him. Normally, I would say it was “Ich”, other wise known as Marine Ich (Cryptocaryon irritans). What I find abnormal though, is that he is very active, aggressive when eating (I just watched him pack away 5 pellets), and is the only fish that has any white spots. Plus, there is tons of them; I would guess 15-20 on his tiny little body. With this amount of Ich, I would think he would be acting much more abnormal.

I am posting this question to Michigan Reefers, a reef tank forum that is very helpful. We will see what they have to say. More to come…
