2 months? that seems like a long *** time. i have read about the hyposalinity method of killing the ick in a QT tank. then there are products like ich-x and stuff that claim to be reef safe. but i just dont trust. i have a 15 gal
tank i can put the 2 fish in for now. from what i have read the snails/crabs/shrimp will not be affected by the ich. and raising the temp a bit will speed up the life cycle of the ich. but i dont want to leave the fish in a empty quarantine tank for 2 month unless i really really have too.
