Corals and inverts are not affected by Ich, but they can carry it if they are kept in a tank with infected fish. By leaving them in a tank that has no fish the Ich parasite will die anyway.

Only fish need to be in the QT tank at low salinity. Corals and inverts can stay or be added to an established DT at normal SG.

Does that help?
