You can smell the garlic in it, for sure.

Sad news - the basslet with ICH died this morning. Wasn't expecting it to happen that fast- is that typical?

I only have two clowns in the tank now, assuming they don't get white spots in the next 30 days is it safe to say the tank is ICH free??

I agree with Sniper...I think its like 60-75 days, but its usually around 60 days without a host. The thing is, if you have fish still in the tank that had Ich, you have multiple host possibilities. My understanding is that you may not always see the Ich, as it can get into the gils and eventually kill the fish without making any outside appearance. Just because you don't see white spots for 60 days does not mean it can't still be alive in the tank.
