Congrats on the success, I accomplished the same, but I used herbtana instead of kordon! Awesome the fish did great! Congrats. Thats the key if you're not gonna QT all your fish for the proper time and treatment. I've seen TONS more success stories leaving the fish in than I have from pulling them! Ich is brought on by stress, moving fish increases stress, increasing stress in a diseased fish equals death often. Its that easy!
I do agree that proper QT ing is the best concept, but ya have to QT EVERYTHING before entering your tank, inverts, fish, corals, algae etc. And I think that thats just not gonna happen, as evidenced by the 1000 posts a day on forums about ich. So I think its best to recommend multiple methods to attack the pesky bugger instead of being dead set on 1 method.
OP Congralations again! Job well done, enjoy your living fishy's!
