So I have been thinking about my ich problem. I know from reading the articles that ich drops off the fish and reproduces, and then finds a host again. The only fish that I can really see a few spots of ich is one of my PJ Cardinal fish. Is it at all possible that my shrimps are getting rid if the ich by eating it?

Thanks!

When the parasite erupts thru the surface of the fish's skin, the damage is pretty much done. That is the point where a cleaner might rid the fish of the parasite. I have heard filter feeding corals can capture the spores and can help, but not certain of this. UV filtration can also kill the spores if intense enough.

When you say permanently damaged, does that mean my fishes are permanently damaged and will not heal? Thank you.

No, if the parasite goes away, they can heal up fine. It's kind of like small pox (although this is a VERY loose comparison), where the skin is damaged when the parasite matures and free swims, leaving a damaged area that can get infected. Many ICH treatments are designed to thicken the fish's slime coat (it's immune system) so the parasite can't penetrate the flesh.

Okay, thanks!

It might have helped if I posted the pictures! Lol
I also included one of the Emerald Crab. I think he has grown!
