What Goes To QT during ICK Treatment?

I have picked up ick from a new addition and am about to begin treatment in QT.

Do i need to relocate my urchin, emerald crabs or snails to the qt for hypo or will they not carry the parasite?


TIA

INverts will not carry ICH. In fact any treatment for ICH will kill them. You want to just move the fish into QT.



Good Luck!

Just the fish. The inverts can't take the hypo. Stay on top of PWC and watch your PH swings. Take 3-4 days to get the SG down and the same to bring it up. Once you get ti down, keep it there for 5 weeks just to be sure. Monitor SG with a refractometer 2x/day.
You can beat it.
Good luck.
