Ich's life cycle is in the 4-6week range and (as already briefly mentioned) higher temp will speed it up...but only by a week or so.


175gallon reef

5,100 gal pond

Fish are people too!

Yes Don, this is true and I agree. But I would like to add that a longer fallow period is required to make absolutely sure the parasites are gone, because it is so deadly so quickly.

i did 4 weeks at 80 f for ich. it worked for me.

A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.
