Does ocellaris clown and chromis get black ich easily?

Amin please don't move this post it is only a general question not a sick fish question.

If there are already black ich in the tank will they get it easily and die easily?

I`ve not seen it on these. I`m going to leave these but by all means these post should be moved. Just because you ask dont mean it wont. And even if it is moved it will leave a shadow post on this forum. You are asking a question about possible parasite infestation of a fish.

I've had a small bout of black ich with my YT, but the clowns and chromis never picked any of it up.

I think the chromis are less susceptible, as they have a harder layer of scales, unlike clowns, which are like tangs, and have softer skin.

(Somebody correct me if I'm wrong here).
