Teen, your going to need to get all the fish into the qt tank. Your main without fish hosts for 6 week should cure. You will need to do frequent water changes on the qt tank considering the bioload. Get a copper test kit to measure the copper level in the qt tank, this is very important, too much copper will kill you fish. Also turn up the temp on you main to 85 degrees, this speed up the life cycle of the parasites.
Good luck!!

when setting up the QT is it better to have the water at a higher temp since the ick can not survive a higher temp in its free swimming stage (i don't remember the technical term)?

It survives, it just speed up its life cycle, dying off quicker.

Thats a productive post. I try to stay out of confrontations on this board, that is what attracted me to it, the lack of posts such as this. Are you really affiliated with premium aquatics? How professional. Just love how people jump on a band wagon. I understand this person has ignored much advise on this forum, but is this really necessary?

Nope, certainly not, unfortunately it was to be expected. When I saw this post yesterday, I subscribed to it, cause I figured after a month of trying to get SWT to do the right thing with his tank, it would get ugly. The thread day before yesterday should have been locked, long before there was any moderator involvement, let's not make this one the same. Whether you like, dislike, are frustrated, whatever...the I told you so's and the attackes do not help this kids fish. This is the thread where you get to decide and show us, are you here for the fish, or your own ego?
