That will be the case unless you leave your tank empty for a while. Without a host for the ich, the ich in the tank will die (because there will be no fish in the tank for it to attach to).

This will happen in your main tank while you treat in your QT.

I am going to remove all of my fish from my display tank into my QT tank. I will then use copper to try to get rid of the ich.

I just order a uv sterilizer from amazon! It's coming tomorrow! If the fish dies at least the Ich will go quicker!

I run the same uv. Just remember that it is not an ich solution. I have had ich with the uv there. It only helps not solves.

condy I think.
I had to mov esome rockwork around in my tank about6 weeks ago to get to a killer crab,in the end I removed the rock it was in to my sump,I also did my PWC at the same time,this obviously stressed out my sailfin tang and the next day it had white spots all over it,the day after my kole tang had white spots.
All I used to cure them was a dosing of stress coat over 5 days,this helps them reduce stress and thicken their slime coat which in turn helped them fight off the parasite,remember most tanks have ich in there its just the fish when not stressed fight it off easily.Ich gone in 3 days and clear tank so far,the ich never got to my 4 clowns or birdnose wrasse.
