"Ich is a parasite by the name of Cryptocaryon irritans. It must be present for a fish to become infested. You could keep a tang in a 1-gallon fish bowl and it won't get ich unless that parasite is present."
I think this is melosu's point which he tried to make earlier:

"You could keep a tang in a large tank which is FULL of parasites, if the fish is stress-free and in good shape, it won't get infected"

I'm one of those fishnutz, who are actually nutz.

Ok, because this thread has become a personal debate about who is right and wrong, I'm locking it. My appologies to AK47.
