Just leave them in there. Just because one fish has Ich doesn't mean they all get it. It's all in how healthy your fish are.

From what everyone here says, Ich is always in your tank. Weather your fish are healthy enough to fight it is the question. I've had A fish with Ich in a tank with five other fish and only the one that had it perished. All the other fish were fine.

Certain fish can survive ick, your right. But to clear the tank completely, yes you need to get ALL the fish put for 6-8 weeks. You can try to leave your net in the tank for a while so the fish get used to it. With the net part hanging down. Even put a bit of food in there once they get used to it. Then BAM, SURPRISE! You caught it.

I would not take any of them out. Hippo tangs always get ich. Taking all the fish out will only stress them more.

So am I just supposed to let the hippo get tons of ich on him every week then? Or is there vitamins I can give them to strengthen immune system
