Regal tang and ich...

I've read that the Regal Tang is particularly susceptible to ich.

So, after a successful 4-week QT period with no signs of ich, what can cause the ich at a later date in the main tank?

Also, interestingly, I've just been looking at this page:-

http://www.wetwebmedia.com/paracant.htm

And, I've found:-

"This is one of those species that are better off not being purposely quarantined; put another way, IMO (in my opinion), the stress induced via isolation and re-moving Paracanthurus is generally more harmful than the risk of introduction of some contagion. I would run newcomers through a preventative bath/dip of pH adjusted freshwater and promptly place them in the main/display unit."

Which is interesting...

What are other peoples' thoughts on QT'ing a Regal Tang? Since it's susceptible to ich, I would've thought it a neccessity...

I would for sure qt. Why risk exposing your other stock?
With a proper qt and no ich in your system to begin with, should not be an issue.

Fenners site right? I read that too. I agree, it goes against everything else they say on that site. Kinda confusing for people.
