Thats' the standard way to be sure that your fish won't get re infected. The ich has a 6 week life cycle and as long as they have no fish to attach to they will die. After they fall off the fish they are still in your tank waiting for more fish to infect.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

As long as you treat your fish in QT and leave your DT fallow (i'd do 8 weeks)...you'll be ick free

So as for my fire shrimp the white spots on him are just him being a carrier of the ich?
