Not correct.

Good reading. Yes, SOME carbons are washed with Phosphoric acid, some are not. There are over 100 types of activated carbons, some for atmospheric use, some for water.

Those treatments won't work. You need a quarantine tank to drop the salinity to 1.008 in. Leave the tank fish less for 6 weeks. Leave your inverts in the tank.

6 to 9 weeks. 6 isn't necessarily long enough. I am a believer of strong health in the fish and the ich will go away on its on. That's how I did it

Correct. I think almost all tanks have some level of parasites in them, the ocean certainly does. The over all health of the fish keeps them disease free.
