copper, hyposalinity, or garlic?

I have a Powder Blue that has been doing well for almost a year but he now has ick. He is still eating well but the spots appear to be getting worse. I have a 20g tank I could use to try and treat with copper or hyposalinity but would need to catch him plus 2 percs and a bicolor to clear the display tank. In addition, I'm not sure how everybody would get along ...

green star polyps

I've just bought a colony of green star polyps. I've notices that there is a small fragment of rock attatched to the main piece by the mat of the polyps. Is it OK to cut the mat to detach the small fragment and start a new colony?

Clownfish Behavior

I have 2 ocellaris clowns (Amphiprion ocellaris) in my reef. I got both a couple of months ago. During the day one clown chases the other and tries to nip it's tail. No damage. But at night, they both sleep together in the same spot!

Are these two paired off or just crazy? The clown doing the chasing is slighty larger and has a darker coloration on the top of its body. images/smiles/icon_confused.gif
