Okay Ive released most of my fish back to the wild, what I have now are the damsels (they are hard to catch in a 200 gallon tank considering that they tend to hide between the rocks, parrot wrass, picasso trigger and 2 chromis. Now if I put all these guys into a QT, and run my tank fishless for a couple of weeks, what should I do with the starfish, hermit crabs and corals ? can I leave them in the tank ? they all seem to be healthy. Ive also done a partial water change hoping that this would also help. I need all of you guys opinions. thanks in advanced.

As long as you leave the tank fishless for a minimum of 4 weeks (6 is better) you should be fine. All the inverts can stay where they are as they cannot feed the parasite and continue the life cycle.

After about 2ish weeks, I would then start to quarantine the first addition. After that fish is ready to be introduced, the tank should be ready. Every additional fish added in the same fashion will ensure no more parasite problems. It will also allow enough time for the bio filter to catch up to new additions.

Cheers
Steve

Adding all those fish at one time could also add to the stress level the fish are already having due to capture.
