Ich outbreak - Possible alternatives? Ca issues as well.

Unfrotunately, I made the dumb mistake of putting a fish in without QT first, and the result is that my entire tank is infested with ich. I simply don't have the time/resources to catch all the fish, not to mention it would disrupt all of my corals/rockwork. I also don't have any place to put them.

Do fish have any chance of surviving ich? Should I simply stop feeding all fish? Will all my corals/inverts be fine? There's pretty much nothing I can do at this point.

I've pretty much decided to just do as much as I can to keep all my corals/inverts happy and alive.

I also tested my Ca and it's 520ppm. I haven't added anything. What do I do?

I can tell you from experience that the snake oil cures for ich are just that - snake oil. The only thing that will get rid of ich for sure is a fishless tank for 6-8 weeks.

That`s the best advice I`ve heard today.
