So if a fish has the "latent stage" and is QT'ed, and you move it to the new tank and he fits in and is happy, you may never see ich or know it is even there....
BINGO
Please add this as a note this does not mean that you should skip QT

To go along with this, my vet told me last night ( who also as I found out, is the city aquarium vet ) told me anyone who DOESN'T QT a new fish for 30 days before introducing it into your main tank is wrong, and doesn't know what he/she is doing. LOL

So take it from a vet, QT your fish for 30 days!
