Please help! I have a saltwater reef and believe I have an outbreak of brooklynella. The tank started with a royal gramma, azure damsel, and t/r clown. The tank had to move, and during the move I lost the gramma which I assumed was just from the move. About a week later my clown died as well, which I attributed to the move. I added 2 clowns from a reputable store, and shortly after the azure damsel died. Now I recognized that something was wrong, and noticed my clown has something white covering his body which looks a lot like a sunburn peeling/powdery white substance. I think it is brooklynella. The black clown has been shown the white for the week I have had it, and having never owned a black fish, I thought it was just sand kick up and other things that you can see on black fish but not on colored fish. The issue I have is the tank is in college, so there is no possiblity of a QT tank.. I simply can't afford any more room. There are corals in the tank so I can't really treat these fish, so I have no idea what to do. Al that is in there is 2 clowns, blood red shrimp and crabs/snails. I read the only way to get rid of brooklynella is to go fishless, but I have nowhere to put the fish for 6 weeks to treat and kill the parasite in my Display tank. It's awful and this is the last thing I want to do, but I don't know what else can be done except not do anything and if they die, go fishless from that point. Again, a QT tank is impossible with the space I have. What can I do?!?!
