Quarantine Fish?

Sadly I have had a clownfish that had ich that has now died in my display tank. Now the only fish I have is another healthy clownfish. I will now be quarantining all my fish before I put them in the display. Should I put my other clownfish in the quarantine for around two months so the ich that may be now in my tank can die off without a host? Thanks for the help!

Well, if you run your tank fallow for 6-8 weeks there won't be any more ich left in the tank since there isn't any host left.
