Can Inverts get Ich?

Can fish that have Ich infect inverts like, Crabs, Shrimp, Snails, or Starfish?

Just Curious.

But they can (although unlikely is possible) carry it into a system, so quarantining inverts is not a bad idea, if possible. It is not usually possible to quarantine Photosynthetic corals and anemones, but any mobile inverts...it's not a bad idea

Definitely. Just be completely sure that the quarantine system you use for inverts has absolutely no trace of copper whatsoever.
