If you do a little research on UV Sterilizer's you can find out what I am talking about with the different flow rates to kill different organisms. I can't remember right off the top of my head though.

Sorry know it is not what you want to hear but it is the truth. Yes it is a lot of work to get rid of ick, thats why it is so important to quarantine all new specimens for 6 weeks to make sure that are not going to introduce anything into your main. Good luck
So if i move all the fish that dont have ich into a tank will hey take ich with them to the new tank whle i wait for the other tank to get rid of the problem??? I am goin to QT the infected fish

I will guarantee you that most tanks have ich in them already. If the fish isn't dying, then leave it. You will only stress it out more trying to catch it increasing its chance of dying. soak your foods in garlic or selcon and most likely you will be alright. Most healthy fish will fight ich off. Ich isn't a death sentence after all. Also, when you go to catch a fish to place it in a QT, you are going to stress the other fish out as well, they stand an increased risk of getting ich as well.

With the right quarantine procedures no tank has to have ich.
