Third I didn't say a healthy fish couldn't get it, I said they have a better chance to fight it off if they do get it. Fourth I didn't say you had to treat the DT, if you do, which I wouldn't recommend, make sure you don't have what I listed. People have treated DT before. Fifth, I didn't say I cured the Ich in my tank by doing those things. I was able to bring the health of my fish up by causing less stress. My tank was a bit cold, less time with the lights on and garlic in the food to boost the immune system, it is an anti-parasitic. Stress was reduced, fish became healthier and Ich was off fish. I am sure the Ich is still in my tank, just not on my fish anymore.
So make sure you read the post thouroughly and undestand it before you blast someone. I didn't say anything that wasn't true, just general info and what I was able to do to get the Ich off my fish.
