I like this thread too, LOL.

I know this is silly, but should i acclimate the bacteria? Probably not, right?

Ich related question. So I just bought a tank off a guy with everything. We found s clownfish in the overflow as we broke it down. He hadn't seen it in over 6 weeks and just assumed it was dead. When I got him home I noticed some white fuzz on his nose. I did not plan for needing a quarantine, so I threw together a ten gallon that I previously had used as a freshwater tank. You can see the setup below. Since the hob filter on the back was new, I knew that I had nothing to deal with nitrogen waste. I quickly decided to through a piece of LR from the DT in there. I have not treated the fish with copper or anything yet. I have just been observing him. The fuzz went away, but I know ich can do this, so I want to keep him quarantined. I kinda want to just run a copper treatment just to be safe, but I know that if I do that with the LR that I can never return that to my DT which has corals and inverts.

So, after all that, here is my question. Can ich be moved on LR? If I have LR in a tank with suspected ich and I move it to my display, will I be putting all those fish at risk? If so, what do I do with this LR to get it back in shape for the display?

If there is ich in that tank do not put the rock back in the display tank or you could possible infect it.

You should be able to remove the copper with carbon after your done with the treatment. the copper should eventually leech out of the rock and be removed.

What if I remove it to a bucket with a power head for about a month. That should be long enough to kill off any parasites, eh? I am hesitant about treating the rock with any copper.

yes you can do that without fish the ich will have no host so it will die off i'd leave it a little longer though if you don't need to put it back for some reason.
