Anything wet that goes in the tank can bring in diseases, inverts, rock, etc can bring ich, velvet, etc in with them if it is on them, it doesn't have to infect to come in on something.

I QT all but corals. I don't have another tank with lights bright enough to support corals. But I think QTing shrimp, crabs, fish, live rock is a good idea.

I dip corals with coral rx. So thats covered.

I don't think inverts can carry in ich or velvet, or are they just immune and are carriers?

We QT everything. Sorry... If it's wet, it earns it's way into our DT. Too much time and money invested in the tank to let something destroy it. It doesn't take that much effort to run a 30 gallon QT beside the DT. It sets up fast and stays for a month or so. I love my fish. Its kinda like a long interview before you get to move into the neighborhood. Lol

Yeah it appears as though they can carry ich but you dont have to qt for the full six weeks you would a fish only three as there is no host for it.
