Set up a qt tank and put your fish in it. I do hyposalinaty at 1.010. Do this for a month. Let your dt go fish less for 6-8 weeks. I'd go the full 8. That way you don't have to worry about reinfection.

All my fish are out of my dt except my little yellow nose goby. I've been treating my dt with a reef safe ich attack. It's been one week so far. Can my goby keep ick alive even though he seems immune?

I've never treated my dt. Just a qt so I can't be a lot of help there. The reason we go fish less in a dt is because with no fish for ich to attach to then it dies off. Hopefully someone will chime in and give you more info. Good luck and keep us posted

Also you don't need to treat your dt. Get the goby out and just let the tank sit

The problem is getting it out cause the goby is small fast shy. Don't want to mess up my tank trying to get it.

You can leave it in there and see what happens. I don't put chemicals in my dt.

It supposedly all natural, no chemicals but I hear ya. I don't want to put anything in there that's why I was wondering if the goby can keep the ich alive for the two months.

Any fish left in the main tank runs the risk of carrying the ich. It could easily re-infect the entire tank. I would break it down if you have to, get that goby and be done with it. You will have 2 months to re do the rockwork so it's not pressing to keep everything as is.

Good luck.

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