no coral does not im also in the proses of treating fish in my main tank for ich but by raiseing the tempreture to 86 degress it stops the ich from reproduecing so basicaly halts the ich in its tracks as ich has sevral stages it attaches to the fish then multiplies then becomes a free floating organism attaching again to the fish i decided rather then use coper or quarantine to raise the tempreture for 3 days in my reef tank thuis way depreiveing the ich of a way to propergate i hope it works i will keep u informed

Nope. Sorry... raising the temp does NOT kill saltwater ich. Please read the links melosu provided in post #5 of this thread - they are the "must reads" for ich.

I have to agree. Higher temps will not stop ich in it`s tracks. If anything it will speed the process up but as long as there is a fish host they will continue to thrive.
